Why use an SNRI for anxiety disorder when norepinephrine is stimulating?

+1 vote
Norepinephrine (NE) is a stimulating neurotransmitter. My question is why would people take an SNRI for anxiety disorder? Wouldn't inhibiting the reuptake of NE accumulate NE in the synpatic cleft, producing more anxiety since it's very stimulating?
