> Hi Bob,
> The technicals involved here are over my head. But basically the two drugs work on serotonin and norepinephrine, except from different angles. There are two disctinct and separate mechanisms, at different levels, with no duplication. Remeron is basically opening up the spigot for release of serotonin and NE, while Effexor blocks the drain. The two work as a team to fill it up with neuros!

Interesting. Thanks for the insight!
