BTS 54-505 hydrochloride
Potently active primary amine metabolite of sibutramine (Cat. No. 2290), exhibits a similar pharmacological profile to the parent compound. Inhibits serotonin and noradrenalin reuptake more potently than sibutramine in vitro. Reduces food intake in rodents following i.c.v. administration and increases energy expenditure via thermogenesis in vivo.
