No sorry, but hopefully someone else has.

I took Reboxetine for about 10 weeks, first 8 mg, then 10mg. I found it a little speedy and at first I seemed to have more energy. But overall it didn’t affect the depression so I stopped.

Hi, well i have been on reboxetine for a week now and i feel crap, i can't sleep, shaking, sweating, very anxious & raised heartbeat. I have been to see my therapist today and they said i am having a bad reaction to them, so they are putting me on Diazapam for a couple of weeks until my symptoms calm down. Fingers crossed they will help. :'(

Sorry you’re having trouble with Reboxetine, the side effects are pretty much the same as I got. I refer to them as “speedy”- amphetamine like. At least none of them are dangerous. This link tells you just about everything about Reboxetine. Section 4.8 on side effects would probably be of most interest.

Hi Steve, thank you for the link. I am feeling a bit calmer with the Diazapam, still not sleeping well though. I have got two weeks of Diazapam then hopefully my side effect's will have calmed down.
