WAY-208,466 is a potent and highly selective full agonist of the 5-HT6 receptor.[1] It increases GABA levels in the cerebral cortex and tolerance does not appear to occur to this action upon chronic administration.[1] Animal studies have shown that WAY-208,466 produces antidepressant and anxiolytic effects in rodents and it may also be useful in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder.[1][2]
