Befuraline (DIV-154) is a psychoactive drug and member of the piperazine chemical class which was developed in Germany in the 1970s.[1] Befuraline has stimulant and antidepressant effects and has seen some use in Germany and France, although it has never become widely used.[2] Befuraline's active metabolite benzylpiperazine is responsible for its effects.
