Lisuride (lisuride hydrogen maleate, Lysenyl, Spofa) is a semisynthetic ergot derivative stereochemically related to isolysergic acid, and carries a substituted amino function in the 8 S position. Like D-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and several over ergot alkaloids, lisuride has been recently shown to stimulate dopamine (DA) receptors in the central nervous system (5,6). Lisuride is said to be nonhallucinogenic and is used as an antimigraine drug. We have studied its biochemical and behavioral effects in rats in comparison with those of LSD.
