No. The abbreviation SNRI is most often used to describe drugs that are reuptake inhibitors of both serotonin and norepinephrine. I think reboxetine is referred to as NRI.

BPD once stood for BiPolar Disorder. It is now used most often to mean Borderline Personality Disorder. (I really don't know why this term is used to describe the symptom cluster). Bipolar disorder has also sometimes been abbreviated as BAD - Bipolar Affective Disorder.
