> 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?

It might be more accurate to view the amine neurotransmitters as being neuromodulators. Neurons are cables that send messages. Glutamate and aspartate are the stimulatory neurotransmitters. Glycine and GABA are inhibitory. These chemicals either facilitate or they block the messages (action potential) being sent to a destination along a network of circuits. The circuitry is the brain, not the amine modulators (dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, trace amines, and myriad other substances). These are not the messengers, but are more like amplifiers and suppressors of the sub-circuits.

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
