We definitely need a drug that inhibits the reuptake of dopamine without releasing it in those critical areas of the brain that relate to depression. Nomifensine (Merital) was one such drug. There are people who are still looking for a drug that works as well for them as did nomifensine. Unfortunately, it was taken off the market when reports of hemolytic anemia appeared. Although it was a rare occurrence, it was enough to spook the manufacturer (then Hoechst Roussel) to remove it voluntarily.

I'll be curious to see how the triple reuptake inhibitors in the pipeline affect people. Will they cause apathy, too? Hopefully, we'll get the chance to find out.
