Receptor antagonists are agents that block their receptor target(s), this means that compounds the body produces in order to activate these receptors can no longer produce their biological effects via said receptor(s). For example cyproheptadine is an antagonist of serotonin receptor subtypes 5-HT1/2, meaning it prevents serotonin from activating these receptors.
