Bromerguride (INNTooltip International Nonproprietary Name), also known as 2-bromolisuride, is an antidopaminergic and serotonergic agent of the ergoline group which was described as having atypical antipsychotic properties but was never marketed.[1][2][3][4][5] It was the first antidopaminergic ergoline derivative to be discovered.[1] The pharmacodynamic actions of bromerguride are said to be "reversed"[jargon] relative to its parent compound lisuride, a dopaminergic agent.[6]
