Deutetrabenazine is a vesicular monoamine transporter type 2 (VMAT2) inhibitor indicated for the management of chorea associated with Huntington’s disease. The precise mechanism of action of deutetrabenazine is not fully elucidated. Deutetrabenazine reversibly depletes the levels of monoamines, such as dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, and histamine, from nerve terminals through the action of its active metabolites. The major circulating metabolites are α-dihydrotetrabenazine (HTBZ) and β-HTBZ that act as reversible inhibitors of VMAT2. Inhibition of VMAT2 results in decreased uptake of monoamines into synaptic terminal and depletion of monoamine stores from nerve terminals.
