new antidepressant called reboxetine (Vestra, Edronax)

You'll see a new antidepressant called reboxetine (Vestra, Edronax). It will be the first in a new class.

Instead of an SSRI (selective SEROTONIN reuptake inhibitor)...it's a selective NOREPINEPHRINE reuptake inhibitor.

Several other antidepressants also inhibit the reuptake of norepinephrine...like Effexor (venlafaxine) and the tricyclics... but they're not as specific.
