Manifaxine (GW-320,659) is a drug developed by GlaxoSmithKline through structural modification of radafaxine, the active metabolite of bupropion. It acts as a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI). It was researched for treatment of ADHD and obesity and was shown to be safe, reasonably effective and well tolerated for both applications,[1][2] but no results have been reported following these initial trials and its current status is unclear.
