Yes, should work for low motivation and self-esteem but not a co-existing anxiety disorder but rather low self-esteem as a result of depression. I think Edronax(Reboxetine)is a good, new SNRI; v-potent and highly selective like the SSRI Paroxetine.

I had also withdrawl symptoms but from celexa: nausea, anxiety and flu like symptoms
instead I tappered down over two weeks...perhaps still too fast !? Then I began Zoloft ans after 5 weeks I still had nausea. Now I think to go off Zoloft and try Edronax for the second time.
I read that reboxetine is as least as effective as imipramin for severe depression (melancholic type) instead there are theories that both neurotransmitter effects (serotonine and noradrenaline) are needed for severe cases. I think that noradrenaline is as important for mood as serotonine.
