Effect of Dehydrobenzperidol on Pituitary Adrenal Function

  • L. Debreczeni


The effect of butyrophenones on central nervous processes is known from the pioneer study of Janssen et al. (1963) and the mechanism of their action was analysed by a number of investigators. Observations, both experimental and empirical, indicate that the most potent butyrophenone, dehydrobenzperidol or droperidol support the adaptation of the organism to noxious stimuli.
