SNRIs are monoamine reuptake inhibitors; specifically, they are inhibitors of the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine. These neurotransmitters are known to play an important role in mood. SNRIs can be contrasted with the more widely used selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which act upon serotonin only.
Before the development of duloxetine, the exploration of aryloxypropanamine SAR resulted in the identification of fluoxetine and atomoxetine. Some studies have been made where the oxygen in reboxetine is replaced by sulfur to give arylthiomethyl morpholine. Some of the arylthiomethyl morpholine derivatives maintain potent levels of serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibition. The same motif can be found in reboxetine where it is constrained in a morpholine ring system. Dual serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibition resides in different enantiomers for arylthiomethyl morpholine scaffold.
I tried Tramadol once which I know affects serotonin and norepinephrine. It made me feel amazing. Now that my father is dying and I broke up with my fiance I really am needing something to get me through. I have a prescription for Effexor, an SNRI but I'm too scared to take it from my SSRI Celexa.

But first thing you need to go see a doctor. Psych doctor preferred.
Granted you should be on depressant meds and you know you should be on them.

MY BELIEF IS THAT ONLY PSYCHIATRIST ARE CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH DEPRESSION AND ONLY A PAIN SPECIALIST IS CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH PAIN.
With Cymbalta, my tolerance never changes. Tram has gone schedule IV now, so shrinks and pcp's aren't as likely to prescribe it at all. My tolerance never rose in 4 months of doing this combination. I need 2 to 3 50mg pills a day and no more.
WHEN THIS HAPPENS I GET MAJOR WITHDRAWEL SYMPTOMS UNLESS I TAKE TRAMADOL.
ONCE AGAIN HOWEVER I HAVE BECOME VERY TOLERANT, ALSO LIKE MANY MANY CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS I TEND TO USE TOO MUCH AND RUN OUT AT SOME POINT IN THE MONTH.
I was prescribed Cymbalta yesterday (snri) and was wondering what the difference between the drug classes was? This question has also been asked and answered here: What's the difference between SSRI's and SNRI's? SNRI's act on two of the neurotransmitters, serotonin and.
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) Of the three neurotransmitters, SSRI's operate on serotonin. The body naturally decreases serotonin. SSRI's "inhibit" (slow or stop) this "re-uptake" (re-absorption) process.
