Fenpentadiol (INN) (brand names Tredum, Trefenum; developmental code name Rd-292), also known as phenpentanediol, is a drug described as a tranquilizer and antidepressant that was formerly marketed in Europe.[1][2] It also has stimulant, sedative, and anxiolytic effects, with the latter two occurring only at higher doses.[3][4]

The following literature incidence of the fenpentadiol has been found and quoted:

In three articles the properties of a new psychotropic agent from the series of araliphatic alcohols — phenpentanediol (CXV) — were described (477-479). It is not easy to place this substance anywhere in the pharmacodynamic system of psychotropic agents: on the one hand it potentiates the barbiturate narcosis, on the other it increases motility and exploratory activity in mice and potentiates the effects of amphetamine.
