Tesofensine is a reuptake inhibitor that increases the availability of serotonin, noradrenaline, and dopamine in the brain. It functions by inhibiting the neurotransmitters in the brain associated with hunger and appetite. This reduces the satisfaction when you eat something savory. Patients tend to consume less food when a dopamine “reward” is removed. Combined with diet, exercise, and or a GLP-1 medication tesofensine can help patients reduce weight safely.
