Norepinephrine and noradrenaline are the same, but excreted in the body it's noradrenaline, in the brain it's norepinephrine 🤷‍♀️

Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors:

  • atomoxetine - Strattera
  • desvenlafaxine - Pristiq
  • duolexetine - Cymbalta
  • levomilnacipran - Fetzima
  • milnacipran - Savella
  • venlafaxine - Effexor


norepinephrine is created from [[dopamine]] → L-DOPA → norepinephrine. The body needs copper for this (but there are problems with too much copper can cause an [[dopamine norepinephrine imbalance]]
