NS-2359 (GSK-372,475) is a serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor. It was under development by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) as an antidepressant,[1] but was discontinued in 2009 when phase II clinical trials turned up disappointing results and did not support further effort by the company.[1] NS-2359 was also in clinical trials for the treatment of ADHD,[2] phase II having been completed in 2007.[3] A trial exploring the effect of NS-2359 on cocaine-experienced individuals is currently ongoing.[4]

Another scientific article on NS-2359 was recently (2011) published.[5] As can be seen from reading the abstract to the citation, the compound failed to perform in clinical trials for the treatment of depression.
