BTS 74,398

BTS 74,398 is a centrally acting stimulant drug which was developed for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. It inhibits the synaptic reuptake of dopamine, serotonin and noradrenaline, making it a triple reuptake inhibitor.[1] It was effective in animal models of Parkinson's disease,[2][3] but was unsuccessful in human trials.[4]
