Prolintane (Catovit), (Promotil), (Villescon), is a stimulant[1] of norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitors developed in the 1950s[2] which is closely related in chemical structure to other drugs such as pyrovalerone, MDPV, and propylhexedrine and with a similar mechanism of action.[3] The drug has been banned in European countries. Many cases of prolintane abuse have been reported.[4]
