> How effective is effexor as an NRI? For a dose of, say, 75mg/day. What are some of the other NRIs available?
I think Effexor has to be higher to hit NE receptors, but don't really know the thresholds.
As for other NRIs:
Strattera is a Selective Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor. I believe it's the only actual SNRI at this point.
Cymbalta is a balanced 5HT and NE reuptake inhibitor.
Wellbutrin inhibits the reuptake of NE and DA.
Amphetamines inhibit the reuptake of NE and DA.
Nortriptyline is an NRI.
Desipramine is an NRI.
Amitriptyline is an NRI.
There are other NRIs in the TCA class, but I don't know all the names.
Hope that helps.
