From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tianeptine, the prototypical reuptake enhancer.

A reuptake enhancer (RE), also sometimes referred to as a reuptake activator, is a type of drug which enhances the plasmalemmal transporter-mediated reuptake of a neurotransmitter from the synapse into the pre-synaptic neuron, leading to a decrease in the extracellular concentrations of the neurotransmitter and therefore a decrease in neurotransmission.

Tianeptine (Stablon), a selective serotonin reuptake enhancer (SSRE), is currently the only reuptake enhancer known.
