Robalzotan (NAD-299) is a drug which acts as a selective antagonist at the 5-HT1A receptor.[1] It was shown to completely reverse the temporary autoreceptor-mediated inhibitory effect on serotonin release caused by the acute administration of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as citalopram and paroxetine.[2] It is subsequently being investigated by AstraZeneca as a potential antidepressant.[3]
