Clovoxamine is a drug that was discovered in the 1970s and subsequently investigated as an antidepressant and anxiolytic agent.[1][2][3] It acts as a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI), with little affinity for the muscarinic acetylcholine, histamine, adrenergic, and serotonin receptors.[4][5] It is structurally related to fluvoxamine.
