List of Partial Agonists

Here is a short list of some of the important Partial agonists we have to know. Please add to this list if you can think of any others.

1. Buspirone (5HT-1A receptors; used for anxiety)
2. Buprenorphine (mu receptors; used for opioid addiction)
3. Clomiphene (estrogen receptors in hypothalmus; used for infertility to induce ovulation and in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
4. Aripiprazole (D2 receptors; atypical antipsychotic used for schizo and Bipolar disorder)
5. Butorphenol (mu receptor; used for pain, often migraines) --> This drug is probably low-yield, but saw it as an answer choice in a question
