Serotonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors or Selective Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors or SNRIs are a class of antidepressant medication used for depression, anxiety and sometimes other uses. Some SNRIs also licensed for chronic pain including nerve pain, e.g. cymbalta (duloxetine), fibromyalgia, or used off-label for other non-psychiatric conditions.[1][2]

SNRIs include:

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

SNRIs are ineffective as a primary treatment for ME/CFS, but may be used to treat some symptoms such as pain, or for co-existing conditions like reactive depression.[3][4]
