Talsupram (Lu 5-005 or Lu 5-003[1]) is a selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (NRI) which was investigated as an antidepressant in the 1960s and 1970s but was never marketed.[2][3][4] Along with talopram, it is structurally related to the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) citalopram.[5]
