Actually, one of Meridia's isomers (or maybe metabolites... I can't remember) is being investigated as an antidepressant. It's normally prescribed as a weight-loss aid. It's Effexor in reverse, to oversimplify things -- Effexor affects serotonin at lower doses, serotonin and norepinephrine at moderate doses, and serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine at high doses. Meridia does the exact opposite (first dopamine, then dopamine and norepinephrine, then all three), so may be better for those with a dopamine deficiency of some type.
