Dopamine releasing agent

A dopamine releasing agent (DRA) is a type of drug which induces the release of dopamine in the body and/or brain.

No selective DRAs are known. Many releasing agents of both dopamine and norepinephrine (norepinephrine-dopamine releasing agents, or NDRAs) and of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine are known (serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine releasing agents, or SNDRAs), however. Examples of NDRAs include amphetamine and methamphetamine, and an example of an SNDRA is MDMA. These drugs are frequently encountered as drugs of abuse.
