Product Information

  • Description

    Levosulpiride is a substituted benzamide drug that is a levo enantiomer of sulpiride, it is an atypical antipsychotic (neuroleptic or tranquilizers) and a prokinetic agent that exerts its antidopaminergic (selective dopamine D2 receptors) activity on both central and peripheral levels. It reduces dopamine-mediated nausea and vomiting by blocking dopamine D2 receptors in the chemoreceptor trigger zone (CTZ) and in hypothalamus. This drug increases the release of acetylcholine and in return increases the movement of the stomach and intestines and prevents reflux. Levosulpiride is a partial agonist of serotonin 5-HT1A, this partial agonism increases the release of serotonin which results in enhancement of its antiemetic effect.
