Oxycodone class
SE: Itching (via histamine release), immune modulation
Naltrexone class
Receptor subtype: Mu (+++) and Kappa (+)
Transdermal, low oral bioavailability. DOA: >1.5 hours
Parenteral only. DOA: 4-8 hours
Receptor subtype: Mu (P) and Kappa (--)
Medium oral bioavailability. DOA: 2-4 hours
SE: Resp depression (increased PaCO2 & depressed response to CO2 challenge), cough suppression, miosis, truncal rigidity, n/v, little effect on BP or HR (some exceptions)
Receptor subtype: Mu (+++)
Drug use: Analgesia (especially severe acute pain)
Drug use: Analgesia (severe acute pain), pre-sx anxiolytic, epidural & spinal analgesia, balanced anesthesia, chronic pain (patches, lollipops)
Drug use: acute opioid OD
Drug: Poor oral efficacy. Glucoronidation. DOA: 1-2 hours (IV). Repeated injected may be needed
SE: Constriction of Oddi sphincter (--> reflex of bile and pancreatic juice --> elevated plasma amylase, lipase), depressed renal function.
Hydrocodone w/ acetaminophen
Receptor subtype: Mu (--) and Kappa (++)
Drug MOA: Weak mu-receptor agonist. Serotonin and NE transporter inhibition
Naloxone class
Efficacy: high; abuse potential: low
Meperidine class
Dezocine class
Parenteral or SL only. DOA: > 8 hours. Long half life (20-70 hours)
Drug use: mild to moderate analgesia, anti-tussives
Efficacy: moderate; abuse potential: medium
Non-opioid effects: MAO inhibition, blocks NMDA (neuropathic pain)
IV only with DOA longer than naloxone
Receptor subtype: Mu (P) and Kappa (++)
High oral potency. DOA 3-4 hours
Codeine w/acetaminophen
Oral only. DOA 4-5 hours
Pentazocine class
Drug use: detox tx for heroine addicts, tolerance develops slower -- analgesic rotation. Withdrawal milder; maintenance tx for heroin addicts
Low oral bioavailability. DOA: 3-4 hours
Nalmefene class
Efficacy: low; abuse potential: medium
Dihydrocodone class
Drug use: Mild analgesia, 1/2 as potent as codeine
Drug use: acute opioid OD, possible use in decreasing ETOH cravings in addicts
Drug use: Analgesia, pre-sx anxiolytic, epidural & spinal analgesia, balanced anesthesia (buprenorphine may be > effective than methadone in detox & maintenance tx in heroin users
Receptor subtype: Mu (P) and Kappa (+++)
Methadone class
Parenteral. DOA: > 0.75 hours
SE: Increased tone of the ureter, bladder, and sphincter (--> urinary retention), decreased uterine tone (may prolong labor).
Parenteral only. DOA: 3-4 hours
SE: in dependent pts --> instant abstinence (withdrawal syndrome)
SE: seizures, neuropathic pain. Little respiratory effects
Receptor subtype: Mu (+)
Analgesia (severe acute pain), pre-sx anxiolytic, epidural & spinal regional analgesia, balanced anesthesia, dyspnea.
Drug use: Mild to moderate analgesia
Buprenorphine class
Well absorbed orally. Strong first pass effect. DOA: up to 48 hours
SE: Analgesia, euphoria (floating sensation, no anxiety or distress), rarely dysphoria (restlessness, malaise), sedation, drowsiness.
Codeine w/ aspirin
Butorphanol class
Parenteral. DOA: > 1.5 hours
Codeine class
Hydrocodone w/ ibuprofen
SE: Peripheral arterial & venous dilation, may increase ICP when pCO2 rises, constipation, decreased motility, increase in GI tone & spasms, biliary colic
Receptor subtype: Mu (+++), Delta (+), and Kappa (+)
Efficacy: moderate. Abuse Potential: low
Medium oral potency. DOA 3-4 hours
Oxycodone w/ acetaminophen
Low oral bioavailability. DOA: 4-5 hours
Nalbuphine class
Efficacy: very low; abuse potential: low
Receptor subtype: Mu (P) and Delta (++)
Non-opioid effects: Antimuscarinic, (tachycardia), blocks serotonin reuptake (contraindicated w/ MAOIs), active metabolite can produce seizure in pts w/ renal failure
Tramadol class
Oxycodone w/ aspirin
SE: Neuroendocrine effects (stimulate the release of ADH, prolactin, somatotropin, inhibit the release of LH), pruritis, flushing, warm skin, sweating.
Hydrocodone class
Levorphanol class
High oral bioavailability.DOA: 4-6 hours
Parenteral. DOA: > 0.05 hours
Medium oral bioavailability, not SC (irritant). DOA: 3-4 hours
Efficacy: high; abuse potential: high
Drug Effects: Almost inert in the absence of an agonist. Reverses opioid effect completely in 1 - 3 minutes. Normalizes resp, consciousness, pupil size, & bowel activity.
Receptor subtype: Mu (++) [10% to morphine] and Delta (+)
Addiction/Withdrawal: No tolerance develops, no abstinence symptoms after withdrawal of antagonists after chronic administration
Fentanyl class
