any meds other than Effexor that work on norepinephrine?


I ask this because Effexor decreased my anxiety substantially but gave me too many side effects. Paxil (40mg) is not really working for me right now.

Tricyclics (TCAs) such as imipramine do. Of course, TCAs can have plenty of side effects too.

Have you tried Cymbalta? It's similar to Effexor, but apparently having less side effects.

No, I haven't tried Cymbalta. Thanks for the info!

I will ask my doctor about Cymbalta and possibly a TCA next time I see her.
