Oxaflozane (INN) (brand name Conflictan) is an antidepressant and anxiolytic drug that was introduced by Solvay in France in 1982 for the treatment of depression but has since been discontinued.[1][2][3][4] It is a prodrug of flumexadol (N-dealkyloxaflozane; 2-(3-trifluoromethylphenyl)morpholine; CERM-1841 or 1841-CERM), which is reported to act as an agonist of the serotonin 5-HT1A (pKi = 7.1) and 5-HT2C (pKi = 7.5) receptors and, to a much lesser extent, of the 5-HT2A (pKi = 6.0) receptor.[4][5] In addition to its serotonergic properties, oxaflozane may also produce anticholinergic side effects at high doses, such as in overdose.[6]

Flumexadol — the primary metabolite of oxaflozane. It has been described as a non-opioid analgesic.[7][8][9]
