Main ChEBI Ontology Automatic Xrefs Reactions Pathways Models
ChEBI Name droperidol
Definition An organofluorine compound that is haloperidol in which the hydroxy group has been eliminated with the introduction of a double bond in the piperidine ring, and the 4-chlorophenyl group has been replaced by a benzimidazol-2-on-1-yl group. It is used in the management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, and in conjunction with an opioid analgesic such as fentanyl to maintain the patient in a calm state of neuroleptanalgesia with indifference to surroundings but still able to cooperate with the surgeon.

Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): dopaminergic antagonist
A drug that binds to but does not activate dopamine receptors, thereby blocking the actions of dopamine or exogenous agonists.
Application(s): antiemetic
A drug used to prevent nausea or vomiting. An antiemetic may act by a wide range of mechanisms: it might affect the medullary control centres (the vomiting centre and the chemoreceptive trigger zone) or affect the peripheral receptors.
dopaminergic antagonist
A drug that binds to but does not activate dopamine receptors, thereby blocking the actions of dopamine or exogenous agonists.
anaesthesia adjuvant
Any substance that possesses little anaesthetic effect by itself, but which enhances or potentiates the anaesthetic action of other drugs when given at the same time.
first generation antipsychotic
Antipsychotic drugs which can have different modes of action but which tend to be more likely than second generation antipsychotics to cause extrapyramidal motor control disabilities such as body rigidity or Parkinson's disease-type movements; such body movements can become permanent even after treatment has ceased.
