Pinoxepin (INN; developmental code name P-5227; pinoxepin hydrochloride (USAN)) is an antipsychotic of the tricyclic group with a dibenzoxepin ring system which was developed in the 1960s but was never marketed.[1][2][3][4][5] It was found in clinical trials to have effectiveness in the treatment of schizophrenia similar to that of chlorpromazine and thioridazine.[4] The drug has marked sedative effects but causes relatively mild extrapyramidal symptoms.[2][4]
