(Mazanor, Sanorex)

Mazindol is a drug in the Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (NRIs) family of drugs.

Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (NRIs) are stimulant drugs of the tetracyclic chemical class which is used as an anorectic (appetite suppressant). NRIs are considered less toxic than amphetamines, but share similar side effects. They inhibit the uptake of catecholamines (flight or fight hormones) and block the binding of cocaine to the dopamine uptake transporter.

NRIs stimulate the central nervous system (nerves and brain), which increases heart rate and blood pressure while decreasing appetite. Sympathomimetic appetite suppressants are used in the short-term treatment of obesity. Their appetite-reducing effect tends to decrease after a few weeks. Because of this, NRIs are useful only during the first few weeks of a weight-loss program.

NRIs have side effects that resemble stimulants such as hypertension, hyperthermia (high body temperature), insomnia and agitation, however they are not considered addictive although many complain of withdrawal symptoms when attempting to quit.  Overdose can lead to hypertensive crisis such as irregular heartbeat, muscle twitching, twitch, fainting and shock.

NRIs should not be combined with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), or phenelzine (Nardil). Changes in insulin and other diabetes drug therapies may be necessary during treatment with NRIs and they may reduce the effects of guanethidine (Ismelin). This could lead to an increase in blood pressure. Tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline (Elavil), amoxapine (Asendin), doxepin (Sinequan), nortriptyline (Pamelor), imipramine (Tofranil), clomipramine (Anafranil), protriptyline (Vivactil), or desipramine (Norpramin) may decrease the effects of NRIs.
