> Sandy I don't think effexor is the same class of meds as remeron. Remeron is in it's own class. The only other SNRI I know of is cymbalta. Love Phillipa<

Hi Phillipa,

I just did a real QUICK search on SNRIs, and Effexor is listed as the first and most commonly used one. Look under SNRIs currently available:

http://www.answers.com/topic/serotonin-norepinephrine-reuptake-inhibitor

You were correct, though, that Remeron is not an SNRI. The reason I always thought it was an SNRI is because it acts on norepinephrine (also known as being noradrenergic) as well as Serotonin....just like the SNRIs.

My boo-boo. Sorry. Still seems like it should be an SNRI, though. And I still believe that it is the impact upon my norepinephrine that helps me, not the serotonin. SSRIs make me "whacko", whereas high doses of both Remeron and Effexor XR make me feel soooooo much better.

Take care and have a wonderful day. I hope you get lots of sunshine!

God bless,
Sandy
