3-(p-Fluorobenzoyl)tropane, (4-fluorotropacocaine, 3-pseudotropyl-4-fluorobenzoate, pFBT) is a tropane derivative drug which acts as a stimulant and local anaesthetic, having around 30% the stimulant potency of cocaine but around the same potency as a local anaesthetic. It has been investigated as a potential radiolabelled agent for studying receptor binding, and as a potential neuroleptic drug, but was not adopted for either of these applications.
