I tried it and hated it. It made my depression worse, not better, and also made me totally impotent. Reboxetine, as well as Buspar, are two of the most worthless drugs anyone ever invented. I'm sure there are people who do well with them, but they are real hard to find. Haven't heard of anyone doing well longterm with either of those meds.
For someone interested in boosting norepinephrine chemistry, I think a better approach is Desipramine or Nortriptyline, or my favorite Adrafinil. Adrafinil has helped many people here, but one weird thing about it is that it seems to work best with another med like Prozac for example. By itself it can be helpful, but combined with something else it can be much better. I like the special synergy that seems to exist between Adrafinil and Prozac.
Reboxetine stinks, but that is just my opinion. Clinical trials look pretty impressive. Why it doesn't work so well in the real world is a mystery to me. Maybe someone fudged the results of those clinical trials or something. I don't know. All I do know for sure is that I, as well as a bunch of other people here, have tried it and not liked it, and I cannot recall a single person who stayed with it.
