Centalun was developed by Boehringer Ingelheim in 1962[1] and is a psycholeptic drug with hypnotic and sedative effects, via allosteric agonism of the GABAA receptor.[2] It was previously used for sedation in medical procedures such as surgery,[3] orthopedics[4] and gynecology,[5] although it is no longer in clinical use. Despite its history of clinical use, centalun was never incorporated into the CSA and therefore remains unregulated as a drug of abuse.
