Metabolite Identification
Common NameTiapride
DescriptionTiapride, also known as tiapridal or equilium, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzenesulfonyl compounds. These are aromatic compounds containing a benzenesulfonyl group, which consists of a monocyclic benzene moiety that carries a sulfonyl group. Tiapride is a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). It has been used as an antipsychotic and in the treatment of various movement disorders and alcoholism. Tiapride is minimally metabolized in humans, 70 % of the drug is eliminated in unchanged form in the urine within 24 hours. Tiapride is a selective dopamine D2 and D3 receptor antagonist, offering an advantage over other neuroleptic drugs, such as haloperidol and risperidone, which bind a range of targets including four of the five known dopamine receptor subtypes (D1-4), serotonin (5-HT2A, 2C), α1- and α2-adrenergic, and histamine H1 receptors. One study found that tiapride shows over three times as much affinity for limbic areas than striatal areas as opposed to the near equal selectivity for limbic and striatal regions shown by haloperidol. Tiapride has a high degree of regional selectivity for limbic areas. Compared to these drugs, tiapride has a relatively moderate affinity for its target receptors, displacing 50 percent of 3H-raclopride binding at a concentration of 320 nM at D2 receptors and a concentration of 180 nM at D3 receptors. Only low concentration of N-desethyl tiapride and tiapride N-oxide and no phase II metabolites were detected. Efficacy at the D2 receptor is moderate, with 80 percent of receptors occupied even in the presence of excess tiapride concentrations.
