Hello and Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service...
I've gone through your query in details...
I can understand your concern...

Not 'N', I think it starts with 'M' as in MILNACIPRAN, i.e. available as brand names Savella, Dalcipran etc.

However, it's primary use is for Fibromyalgia only, although it has exhibited antidepressant effects similar to other generations of antidepressants...

Hope this answers your query.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
