A-68930 is a synthetic compound that acts as a selective dopamine receptor D1 partial agonist.[1][2] It is orally active and has antidepressant and anorectic effects in animals, producing wakefulness and tachycardia,[3][4][5][6] but without stimulant effects, instead producing sedation.[7][8] 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.[9]
