I've read many posts from people who are trying/taking reboxetine. I'm curious; are they doing it "on their own" or in coordination with their doctor?
And if they are doing it with their doctor, what is the doctor's attitude about working with a drug not yet approved in the US?
I am eager to try reboxetine, and have a supply from Englant. I want to work with my doctor, since I am on so many medications (5) already for depression.
Is there some kind of OFFICIAL policy that speaks to this issue of docs working with unapproved drugs?
I predict that when I bring up my desire to try reb-xetine to my doctor, he will say he can't. I want to educate myself on this issue in advance.
I posted another message like this a few months ago, but never got any responses. Thought I'd try again.
Thanks for any input.
