What is Sulpiride?

Sulpiride is a selective dopamine D2 antagonist drug used mainly in the treatment of psychosis (e.g. schizophrenia) and depression. It is sometimes referred to as a 'major tranquilliser', and works by blocking dopamine receptors in the brain.

This medication has strong chemical and clinical similarities to the novel anti-psychotic amisulpride, and is a substituted benzamide.

Sulpiride is more commonly used in Europe and Japan, and has currently not been approved for use in the US and Canada. Nevertheless, this medication is sold under numerous brand names including Bosnyl®, Dogmatil®, Dolmatil®, Eglonyl®, Meresa®, Sulpor®, and Sulpitil®.
