Background

Cyproheptadine hydrochloride is an antagonist of serotonin receptor [1].

Cyproheptadine is a serotonin and histamine antagonist as well as an antimuscarinic reagent. It is used to treat for postgastrectomy-dumping syndrome, pruritic dermatoses, migraine, anorexia, and pituitary-dependent Cushing's syndrome. The major urinary product of cyproheptadine is cyproheptadine glucuronide, a quaternary ammonium compound. Cyproheptadine has some side effects including sedation, drowsiness, hypotension, tachycardia and blood dyscrasias. As a 5-HT2A receptor antagonist, cyproheptadine is found to reverse serotonin-enhanced ADP-induced platelet aggregation in vitro and ex vivo suggesting its antiplatelet and thromboprotective effects.
