Indatraline, also known as Lu 19-005, is a nonselective monoamine reuptake inhibitor that has been shown to block the reuptake of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin with effects similar to those of cocaine. However, the effects have been shown to have slower onset and longer duration than cocaine, suggesting that the compound may, along with similar compounds, be used for treatment of cocaine abuse.[1] Research has also suggested that indatraline can be used to block the action of methamphetamine.[2]
