Pirandamine (AY-23,713) is a tricyclic derivative which acts as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI).[1][2][3] It was investigated in the 1970s as a potential antidepressant but clinical development was not commenced and it was never marketed.[1] Pirandamine is structurally related to tandamine, which, in contrast, is a selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor.[1][3]
