Hi there, I tried reboxetine to treat depression, exactly because my depression comes with lethargy, lack of concentration, motivaton and all that. It really didn't work for me. It made me manically energetic for about 5 days- but in a very uncomfortable way, I was bursting with energy that wouldn't go away even after vigorous exercise, but my mind was very agitated, jumping from thought to thought, and couldn't focus on anything at all. I also couldn't sleep for being wired up, but still felt sleepy and exhausted- I know it sounds weird, but it was unlike anything I've ever experienced. After about 5 days the energetic effect wore off and I felt the same as before only MUCH more anxious and wired up in a bad way. The anxiety was so bad I eventually had to reduce dosage by half. I stayed on it for 2.5 months but had no change in depression and anxiety never went away.
This is not to discourage you- it seems to have done wonders for many people. It's just information about possible effects. This sounds obvious, but it might be worth consulting an experienced pdoc- I was perscriped reboxetine by the GP, but when I eventually made it to the pdoc he said immediately that he didn't think reboxetine would work in my particular case- that I needed dopamine not noradrenaline.
