Abstract

The search for an analgesic which shows low dependence and greater potency than morphine led to the discovery and introduction of the drug dextromoramide (I), (Janssen, 1956). However, as with many analgesics, it was later shown that this drug possessed only two or three times the potency of morphine and that tolerance to the drug developed rapidly (Home Office, 1979). Our interest in the drug arose from reports of its misuse following “break-ins” to pharmacies (Fish 1975).
