I am on a mild dose of Reboxetine cause I suffer from extreme fatique and lethargic depression. This is a noadrenaline medication, not same as SNRI, it's only NRI. I have tried SSRI but got even more tired of it (and fat and also some breathing problems).

The problem with Reboxetine is that I wake up several times a night and that I actually feel relaxed on this (how is that even possible). Its not a problem to be relaxed but it should wake me up, but it's not.

I want to hear your experience with this drug, if you have. Did u experience side effects? When did it leave? Did this helped you? Did you gain or lose weight on this?

I took reboxetine (Edronax) for about 2 years. From 2010 to 2012. It was meant for depression and to augment the dexamphetamine I take for ADHD. It didn't feel as though it did much, to be honest, although when I didn't take dexamphetamine, I still felt a mild alertness.

It was the worst medication for its smell! I thought it was really gross and that was one of the reasons I was glad to stop taking it.

Edronax was swapped to Cymbalta.

Thank you for the respond, I appreciate it.
I never felt any smell from Reboxetine tablets.

Was Cymbalta better? Any side effects like weigt gain?

My flatmate thought that my reboxetine smelled like vanilla. I had to disagree!

Cymbalta wasn't bad, I had no side effects at all from that. Only thing was it didn't last long (about a year) before I started getting depressive symptoms again.

I'm now on moclobemide, which has been the best antidepressant medication I've ever been on. Five years and still good. 8)

It's not a SSRI, right or is it? Have you gain weight or lost weight?
