Name: Acetophenazine
Description: Acetophenazine is an antipsychotic drug of moderate-potency. It is used in the treatment of disorganized and psychotic thinking.

Pharmacology: Acetophenzine is a phenothiazine antipsychotic intended for the management of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Mechanism of action: Acetophenazine blocks postsynaptic mesolimbic dopaminergic D1 and D2 receptors in the brain; depresses the release of hypothalamic and hypophyseal hormones and is believed to depress the reticular activating system thus affecting basal metabolism, body temperature, wakefulness, vasomotor tone, and emesis.
