Definition:A racemate consisting of equal amounts of (3R,11bR)- and (3S,11bS)-9,10-dimethoxy-3-isobutyl-1,3,4,6,7,11b-hexahydro-2H-pyrido[2,1-a]isoquinolin-2-one. An adrenergic uptake inhibitor, it was formerly used as an antipsychotic, but it is now used mainly for the treatment of various movement disorders including chorea, ballism, dystonias, and tardive dyskinesia.
