Tandamine is a selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor with a tricyclic structure.[1][2][3] It was developed in the 1970s as an antidepressant but was never commercialized.[1][2][3] Tandamine is analogous to pirandamine, which, instead, acts as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI).[4][5]
