Hi Scott,

How easy would it be for you to get hold of reserpine? Is it available as a generic in the US? If not, you might still be able to get hold of a reserpine/diuretic combination. Perhaps as a generic or maybe a brand.

Are any of the following diuretic/reserpine brands still available in the US?

Demi-Regroton, Diupres, Diutensen-R, Hydro-Serp, Hydropres, Hydroserpine, Metatensin, Regroton, Renese R, Salutensin.

Tetrabenazine (Nitoman, Xenazine) is available in Canada and the UK. It has a lot in common with reserpine. It is mainly used to treat severe movement disorders, notably tardive dyskinesia and Huntington's disease. Depression is a common side effect of tetrabenazine.

'Tetrabenazine and reserpine act by depleting the supply of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin in nerve terminals, thereby decreasing the amount available for release. Tetrabenazine may also block both D1 and D2 receptors.'
