Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (NRIs), also known as noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (NARIs), are compounds that elevate the extracellular level of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine in the CNS by inhibiting its reuptake from the synaptic cleft into the presynaptic neuronal terminal via the norepinephrine transporter. Virtually, they do not act at other monoamine transporters.
