i was wondering if anybody had tried modafinil alone or in combination with other medications particularly ssris. does modafinil work in a similar way to wellbutrin and reboxetine. has anyone had any success with reboxetine alone or with a ssri. i read it was good for social anxiety but havent seen comments about it.

has it helped anybody

Reboxetine is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, worked quite well for me for depression.

Wellbutrin is a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor.

Modafinil is a very mild dopamine reuptake inhibitor and stimulates release of dopamine and norepinephrine. So on its own it isn't very comparable to either medication. Combining it with reboxetine would sort-of equal Wellbutrin I guess.

Where do you live that both reboxetine and Wellbutrin are approved, anyway? Reboxetine is normally only approved in Europe and Wellbutrin isn't approved in a lot of Europe.
