Highly potent and selective 5-HT uptake inhibitor that binds with high affinity to the serotonin transporter (Ki
= 0.05 nM). Ki
values are 1.1, 350 and 1100 nM for inhibition of [3
H]-l-NA and [3
H]-DA uptake respectively. Displays minimal affinity for α1
- or β
receptors at concentrations below 1000 nM, however displays weak affinity for muscarinic ACh receptors (Ki
= 42 nM). Antidepressant and anxiolytic in vivo
