Eprobemide (INN) is a pharmaceutical drug that was used as an antidepressant in Russia (under the brand name Бефол/Befol).[1] It is a non-competitive reversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase A[2][3] that exhibits selective action on serotonin deamination.[4] Eprobemide differs from moclobemide only in linker that connects morpholine fragment with chlorobenzamide—moclobemide has two carbon atoms while eprobemide has three. Its registration was cancelled on December 30, 2003.[5]
