Description
Mazindol

Mazindol is a sympathomimetic amine for the treatment of obesity and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Like other sympathomimetic appetite suppressants, mazindol is thought to act as a reuptake inhibitor of norepinephrine. In addition, it inhibits dopamine and serotonin reuptake. It stimulates the central nervous system, which increases heart rate and blood pressure, and decreases appetite.
