Liafensine (BMS-820836) is a serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (SNDRI) which was under development by Bristol-Myers Squibb for the treatment of major depressive disorder.[1][2] Though it demonstrated comparable effectiveness to escitalopram and duloxetine in phase II clinical trials, development was terminated in 2013 because liafensine failed to show superior effectiveness relative to these drugs, a decision that was made likely based on its increased capacity for side effects as well as potential for abuse.[1]
