Setiptiline (Tecipul), also known as teciptiline, is a tetracyclic antidepressant (TeCA) which acts as a noradrenergic and specific serotonergic antidepressant (NaSSA). It was launched in 1989 for the treatment of depression in Japan by Mochida.[1][2]


Setiptiline has a tetracyclic structure and is a close analogue of mianserin and mirtazapine, with setiptiline being delta(13b,4a),4a-carba-mianserin, and mirtazapine being 6-aza-mianserin.


Setiptiline acts as a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor,[3] α2-adrenergic receptor antagonist,[4] and serotonin receptor antagonist,[5] likely at the 5-HT2A, 5-HT2C, and/or 5-HT3 subtypes, as well as an H1 receptor inverse agonist/antihistamine.[3]
