Xylamidine is a drug which acts as an antagonist at the 5HT2A receptor, and to a lesser extent at the 5HT1A receptor. It does not cross the blood brain barrier which makes it useful for blocking peripheral serotonergic responses like cardiovascular[1][2] and gastrointestinal effects,[3] without producing the central effects of 5HT2A blockade such as sedation, or interfering with the central actions of 5HT2A agonists.[4]
