A-68930 is a synthetic compound that acts as a selective dopamine receptor D1 partial agonist.[2][3] It is orally active and has antidepressant and anorectic effects in animals, producing wakefulness and tachycardia,[4][5][6][7] but without stimulant effects, instead producing sedation.[8][9] The difference in effects between A-68930 and other D1 agonists such as SKF-82958 may be due to their differing effects on the related D5 receptor.[10]
