Clinical Information

Benperidol is a high-potency neuroleptic of the Butyrophenone Group. It functions as a dopamine blocker in the basal ganglia and displays a strong affinity to D2 receptors. This leads to side effects. Benperidol administration usually comes with side effects as EPS-elastosis peforans serpiginosa, fatigue, hypotension or heart- rate and –rhythm disorders. For this reason Benperidol is recommended as a reserve medication for schizophrenia therapies.
