Heptral (Ademetionine) is a prescription medicine used to treat adult with major depressive disorder. It can be used to treat intrahepatic cholestasis, a condition in which bile flow from the liver is reduced and excess cholesterol in bile and biliary and liver diseases caused by cystic fibrosis. The active substance in Heptral is Ademetionine. Ademetionine belongs to the class of medication called Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). It works by causing an increase in the level of certain neurotransmitters (serotonin) in the brain, which communicate between brain cells which regulate mood and treat depression. Treating depression prevents self-harm or suicide.
