Description

Zotepine is a potent antipsychotic and antidepressive drug, which was developed in Japan and used in many countries for the treatment of schizophrenia. Zotepine has high affinity to D2, 5-HT2A, 5-HT2C, 5-HT6, 5-HT7, alpha1A, H1, and D1 receptors at therapeutically relevant concentrations and has similar affinities to 5-HT1A, alpha2A, and M1 receptors at high concentrations. In human zotepine is metabolized to a major metabolite, norzotepine, which has profile similar to that of zotepine for important neurotransmitter receptors known to be responsible for zotepine antipsychotic activity.The drug is still available in Asia.
