Carpipramine (Prazinil, Defekton) is an atypical antipsychotic used for the treatment of schizophrenia and anxiety in France and Japan.[1][2][3][4] In addition to its neuroleptic and anxiolytic effects, carpipramine also has hypnotic properties.[3] It is structurally related to both tricyclics like imipramine and butyrophenones like haloperidol.[3]
