Tramadol, a centrally acting analgesic drug, has relatively high affinity to serotonin transporter (5-HTT) and norepinephrine transporter (NET) in addition to μ-opioid receptor. Based on this characteristic, tramadol is expected to have antidepressant effect.

Metabolite of serotonin and norepinephrine.
Substances that contain a fused three-ring moiety and are used in the treatment of depression. These drugs block the uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin into axon terminals and may block some subtypes of serotonin, adrenergic, and histamine receptors. However the mechanism of their antidepressant effects is not clear because the therapeutic effects usually take weeks to develop and may reflect compensatory changes in the central nervous system.
Organic cation transporter consisting of twelve transmembrane domains and expressed primarily in the kidney. It transports a wide range of metabolites, drugs, and neurotransmitters from the blood to the KIDNEY TUBULES, including DOPAMINE; SEROTONIN; CHOLINE; and CISPLATIN.
Drugs that bind to but do not activate serotonin receptors, thereby blocking the actions of serotonin or serotonin agonists.
The N-demethylated derivative of the antipsychotic agent LOXAPINE that works by blocking the reuptake of norepinephrine, serotonin, or both. It also blocks dopamine receptors.
