Prolintane (Promotil, Katovit) is a psychostimulant/nootropic.

Prolintane is a stimulant closely related in structure to other drugs such as pyrovalerone and presumably has a similar mechanism of action, by inhibiting the reuptake of dopamine and other monoamine neurotransmitters. Prolintane is a mild stimulant with a good safety profile and relatively low incidence of cardiovascular problems or other side effects such as anorexia and insomnia, although these side effects may still occur at higher doses. However the good safety profile of this drug at low doses makes it suitable for use in elderly people to increase motivation and counteract the effects of senile dementia and age-related cognitive decline. It is mainly used in European countries.
