Description

Oxaprotiline is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor of the tetracyclic antidepressant family that is related to maprotiline. Though investigated as an antidepressant, it was never marketed. Oxaprotiline is a racemic compound composed of two isomers, R(−)- or levo- oxaprotiline (levoprotiline; CGP-12,103-A), and S(+)- or dextro- oxaprotiline (dextroprotiline; CGP-12,104-A). Both enantiomers are active, with the levo- form acting merely as an antihistamine and the dextro- form having a more expansive pharmacology, but with both unexpectedly still retaining antidepressant effects.
