Prolintane (Catovit, Katovit, Promotil, Villescon) is a stimulant[1] and norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor developed in the 1950s.[2] It is closely related in chemical structure to other drugs such as pyrovalerone, MDPV, and propylhexedrine and it has a similar mechanism of action.[3] Many cases of prolintane abuse have been reported.[4]

Under the name "Katovit", it was commercialized by the Spanish pharmaceutical company FHER until 2001, mostly as a mental stimulant by students.
