Additional information about Levopraid

Levopraid Indication: Levopraid is indicated for the treatment of schizophrenia.
Mechanism Of Action: In contrast to most other neuroleptics which block both dopamine D1 and D2 receptors, Levopraid is more selective and acts primarily as a dopamine D2 antagonist. Levopraid appears to lack effects on norepinephrine, acetylcholine, serotonin, histamine, or gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors.
