Asenapine is a new 5-HT2A- and D2-receptor antagonist under development for the treatment of schizophrenia and acute mania associated with bipolar disorder by Schering-Plough after its November 19, 2007 combination with Organon International.

Asenapine belongs to a class of neuroleptics known as "atypical antipsychotics", which have, over the last two decades, become increasingly popular alternatives to "typical antipsychotics", such as haloperidol. The manufacturers of asanapine refer to it as a "new generation" or "second generation" atypical antipsychotic.

Other atypical antipsychotics include aripiprazole, olanzapine, quetiapine, risperidone, and ziprasidone.
