Dazopride (AHR-5531) is an antiemetic and gastroprokinetic agent of the benzamide class which was never marketed.[1][2][3][4][5] It acts as a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist and 5-HT4 receptor agonist.[3][4][6] In addition to its gastrointestinal effects, dazopride facilitates learning and memory in mice.[7]
