Indeloxazine (Elen, Noin) is a so-called cerebral activator used in Japan for the treatment of cerebrovascular disease. [1] It was launched in 1988. [2]

Indeloxazine acts as a serotonin releasing agent and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor.[3] It also acts as an NMDA receptor antagonist.[4] It enhances acetylcholine release through indirect activation of the 5-HT4 receptor.[5][6][7] Indeloxazine has nootropic,[8][9][6][7] neuroprotective,[10][11][12][13] anticonvulsant,[14] and antidepressant effects.[15][16][3]
