Quinupramine (Kevopril, Kinupril, Adeprim, Quinuprine) is a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) used in Europe for the treatment of depression. [1] [2]

Pharmacologically, quinupramine acts in vitro as a strong muscarinic acetylcholine receptor antagonist (anticholinergic) and H1 receptor antagonist (antihistamine), moderate 5-HT2 receptor antagonist, and weak serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor.[3] It has negligible affinity for the α1-adrenergic, α2-adrenergic, β-adrenergic, and D2 receptors.[3]

Clinically, quinupramine is reported to be stimulating similarly to imipramine, desipramine, and demexiptiline. [4] It can be inferred that its metabolites may have stronger effects on the reuptake of norepinephrine than quinupramine itself.
