What is the function of norepinophine?
Norepinephrine is a catecholamine with multiple roles including as a hormone and a neurotransmitter.Areas of the body that produce or are affected by norepinephrine are described as noradrenergic. One of the most important functions of norepinephrine is its role as the neurotransmitter released from the sympathetic neurons affecting the heart. An increase in norepinephrine from the sympathetic nervous system increases the rate of contractions

How do tricyclic antidepressants work?
Tricyclic antidepressants typically bind to serotonin (and, in some cases, norepinephrine) transporters to inhibit reuptake back into presynaptic neurons, which results in the net increase in levels of monoamine (serotonin and norepinephrine) in the synapse. This synaptic increase allows for more serotonin (and/or norepinephrine) to bind/rebind with postsynaptic serotonin (or norepinephrine) receptors, which upmodulates the serotonin (or norepinephrine) signal.

What neurotransmitter does a SNRI 'Serotonin Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor' drug work on?
The S stands for serotonin and the N stands for norepinephrine and RI stands for reuptake inhibitor. So, obviously these drugs are supposed to work on both serotonin and norepinephrine. However, some literature uses SNRI to mean Selective Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor, and this will work better on norepinephrine. Then you have the SSRI which is Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor, which works better on serotonin.
