From what I was able to determine, reboxetine is the closest cousin to viloxazine. Viloxazine was thought to affect serotonin effects as well as norepinephrine but for some reason does not have the drawbacks typical of the SSRIs (libido, orgasm, sedation); I've also not seen it compared to effexor, though the Serotonin and norepinephrine combo would seem to suggest that.
Nardil and parnate had the exact same effects on me, generally non-sedating except for 1-2pm and ~7-8pm, when I'd get these huge fatigue attacks and basically check out--more from fatigue than drowsiness, though sleeping during them seemed to help. Nothing like the sedation I got from prozac or nortryptiline, though. And I generally felt more alert on parnate & nardil than I did on wellbutrin. The best has been viloxazine, though. I'm looking forward to trying reboxetine, if/when it is approved and covered by insurance.
