> But, norepinephrine is a 'stimulating' brain chemical. For example, atomoxetine has been used in chronic fatigue and depression related fatigue with success. This is why drugs like venlafaxine and desipramine are more 'stimulating' than SSRIs. If it's stimulating, then isn't it a stimulant?

Kind of. I guess it is largely arbitrary. Caffeine and nicotine are regarded as stimulants, but the former is sometimes kind of hypnotic for me, and I've used nicotine a lot to calm down and relax when I'm on a "real" stimulant like ethylphenidate. I've also had some help from ephedrine when I was really in need, lacking access to anything else that would help -- I was almost suicidal at the time. And on reboxetine I would wake up earlier.
