Wait a minute!

SNRI *does* mean Selective Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor, and reboxetine *is* an SNRI, at least that's how I was made to understand it.

Don't tell me Eli Lilly had the gonads to change this just because they decided to combine the two! I'm surprised they didn't patent the word "selective."

This reminds me of when WINDOWS NT (WINNT) was first released and the neophytes thought it meant "Network Technology" when in reality it meant "New Technology."

Sheesh, what's in a name anyway?

And for all of you out there making gagillions of bucks via on-line stock trading, time to buy Lilly stock ... there's rumor of an Upjohn merger or buy-out.
