Effect of Dehydrobenzperidol on Pituitary Adrenal Function
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.
