Enpiprazole (INN, BAN) is an anxiolytic drug of the phenylpiperazine group that was never marketed.[1][2] It produces anxiolytic-like effects in animals, though these effects appear to be biphasic and may reverse at high doses.[3] It is known to produce ortho-chlorophenylpiperazine (o-cPP) as a metabolite.[4]
