Isamoltane (CGP 361A) is a phenoxypropanolamine derivative drug and research chemical used in scientific studies. It is purported to have anxiolytic properties.[1] It acts as an antagonist at the β-adrenergic, 5-HT1A, and 5-HT1B receptors. It has about five times the potency for the 5-HT1B receptor (21 nmol/l) over the 5-HT1A receptor (112 nmol/l).[2]
