Additional Details

For the symptomatical treatment of hyperkinetic movement disorder.
Mode of Action:
Tetrabenazine works mainly as a VMAT-inhibitor and as such promotes the early metabolic degradation of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine is required for fine motor movement, so the inhibition of its transmission can lessen the effects of any hyperkinetic movement.
CYP2D6 mediated hepatic metabolism.
