Snri (news To Me)


Recommended Posts

Until recently (less than a year, I think) these meds were simply called "atypical" antidepressants.

SNRI is a new term so not too unusual not to have heard it before.

I am currently tapering off effexor XR and slowly getting on cymbalta.

My autonomic doc suggested it, says she has better results with cymbalta. My psychiatrist told me effexor only works as a norepinephrine reuptake med in high doses (300mg and above). Cymbalta works on both neurotransmitters at all doses.

I'm no expert, but this is what my team is telling me.
