Title: Methylnaphthidate  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Serotonin–norepinephrine–dopamine reuptake inhibitor
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


HDMP-28 or methylnaphthidate is a piperidine based stimulant drug, closely related to methylphenidate, but with the phenyl ring replaced by naphthalene. It is a potent dopamine reuptake inhibitor, with several times the potency of methylphenidate and a short duration of action,[1] and is a structural isomer of another potent dopamine reuptake inhibitor, N,O-Dimethyl-4-(2-naphthyl)piperidine-3-carboxylate.

Most of the TMP analogs of HDMP-28 have SERT Ki values in the range >10,000 and so are selective for dopamine and noradrenaline reuptake, with little or no effect on serotonin. HDMP-28 also has high affinity to SERT, and so behaves as a triple reuptake inhibitor.[2]

D.R. = Discrimination Ratio = [3H]DA ÷ [3H]CFT.

A low D.R. = addictive, whereas a high D.R. = low propensity for self-administration.
