My hunch is that since it was on the market on the EU before being launched in the US that it was "gotten rid of" by the Eli-Lilly brown-nosers at the FDA, as the new SSRI class med, Prozac was coming on-line in 1987.

The Big Pharma Co's have lots of clout and they are not as much concerned about your health as making $$$ for the stockholders.

Too bad the East Indian drug companies couldn't remanufacture this proven med, as I am sure it would be a nice addition for those who need a little Dopamine/NE punch in an AD.

Great med and worked very well for me until it was cancelled.
