Tricyclic Compound

"Tricyclics are chemical compounds that contain three interconnected rings  of atoms."

"Many compounds have a tricyclic structure, but in pharmacology, the term has traditionally been reserved to describe heterocyclic drugs. Among these are antidepressantsantipsychotics, and antihistamines (as antiallergens, anti-motion sickness drugs, antipruritics, and hypnotics/sedatives) of the dibenzazepinedibenzocycloheptenedibenzothiazepinedibenzothiepinphenothiazine, and thioxanthene chemical classes, and others."
