First of all, could you please help me name this molecule? I think the name of it is something like this: N,N-pentamethylene lysergic acid. Secondly, my main question is what could be the pharmacology / mechanism of action (eg the target receptors, etc.) of this molecule? I couldn't find any info on DrugBank, so I'm all ears to your ideas. Please help me on this; it is quite a burning question.

P.S.: If there are any mistakes in my English, please excuse me.


That is lysergic acid piperidide, an analog of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). According to Wikipedia, it is an agonist of the 5-HT2A receptor, but is much less potent than LSD.
