Fananserin (RP-62204) is a drug which acts as a potent antagonist at both the 5HT2A receptor,[1] and the Dopamine D4 receptor,[2] but without blocking other dopamine receptors such as D2.[3] It has sedative[4] and antipsychotic effects, and has been researched for the treatment of schizophrenia,[5] although efficacy was less than expected and results were disappointing.[6]
