I just talked with a pharmacist who states it looks like Reboxetine is still on the investigatonal list with the FDA and only people who are involved in studies have access to it here in USA.

Unless someone else has further info, that is the best I can help you with.

Hi Summer,

Reboxetine is a relatively new drug so I dont think there will be many people on it. Its unusual for the FDA in the US to still be investigating something if it has been released for NHS use in the UK since we have much tighter controls on drugs than you guys do. (Thats why we are always about 2 years behind! lol) Reboxetine is the generic name, but the trade name (in the UK) is Edronax. This might help with your research. I have not heard of anyone using it, but it is used for treating MDD.

Sorry I cant help more
