Butyrophenone is a chemical compound; some of its derivatives (called commonly butyrophenones) are used to treat various psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, as well as acting as antiemetics.
Butyrophenones are a class of pharmaceutical drugs derived from butyrophenone.
- Haloperidol, the most widely used classical antipsychotic drug in this class
- Droperidol, often used for neuroleptanalgesic anesthesia and sedation in intensive-care treatment
- Benperidol, the most potent commonly used antipsychotic ( 200 times more potent than chlorpromazine)
- Triperidol, a highly potent antipsychotic (100 times more potent than chlorpromazine)
- Melperone, a weakly potent antipsychotic, in Europe commonly used for treatment of insomnia, confusional states, psychomotor agitation, and delirium, in particular, in geriatric patients
