Syntheses of novel 15‐thia‐11,13‐diazasteroidal skeleton IV and its D‐homo analogues are described. Meso‐ionic derivatives of IV were also synthesized. Antidepressive activities of these compounds and their precursors were screened. D‐Dihomothiadiazasteroid IX and 3,4,5,6‐tetrahydrobenzo[h]quinazoline‐4‐thione (V) exhibited antireserpine action.
