Etoperidone (Axiomin, Centren, Depracer, Etonin, Etoran, Staff, Tropene), also known as clopradone and triazolinone, is an antidepressant of the phenylpiperazine class which was introduced in Europe in 1977.[1][2] It acts primarily as an antagonist of several receptors in the following order of potency: 5-HT2A receptor (36 nM) > α1-adrenergic receptor (38 nM) > 5-HT1A receptor (85 nM) > α2-adrenergic receptor (570 nM);[3] it has only very weak or negligible affinity for blocking the following receptors: D2 receptor (2,300 nM) > H1 receptor (3,100 nM) > mACh receptors (>35,000 nM).[3] In addition to its receptor blockade, etoperidone also has weak affinity for the monoamine transporters as well: serotonin transporter (890 nM) > norepinephrine transporter (20,000 nM) > dopamine transporter (52,000 nM).[4]
