Metabolic pathway of cloniprazepam

Cloniprazepam is a benzodiazepine derivative and a prodrug mainly for clonazepam (a patented medicine) and other metabolites.,[1][2] including 7-aminoclonazepam and clonazepam mentioned above (both as metabolites), which may be misinterpreted as clonazepam intake at the result of a drug test.[1]

Some of the minor metabolites include 3-hydroxy and 6-hydroxyclonazepam, 3-hydroxycloniprazepam and ketocloniprazepam with ketone group formed where 3-hydroxy group was.[1]

It is a designer drug and an NPS (short for "new psychoactive substance").[1] At the end of 2017, cloniprazepam remains an uncontrolled substance in most of the countries.
