Gevotroline (WY-47,384) is an atypical antipsychotic with a tricyclic structure which was under development for the treatment of schizophrenia by Wyeth-Ayerst.[1][2][3] It acts as a balanced, modest affinity D2 and 5-HT2 receptor antagonist and also possesses high affinity for the sigma receptor.[2][4][5][6] It was well-tolerated and showed efficacy in phase II clinical trials but was never marketed.[2][3]


Gevotroline synthesis:[7]

Lednicer drew it without the fluorine in his book. I simply copied what he did that is why no fluorine above.
