How is the chemical norepinephrine helpful for depression?

I am on a new medication called Effexor XR which is a Serotonin-norepinephrine pill. I know what serotonin is used for in the brain with depression and anxiety, but what is norepinephrine for and does it help? I have Major Depressive Disorder and Panic Disorder.

Please try to explain rather than using a reference online as those can be generic.
