Abstract

Propiram is an orally administered opioid analgesic with partial morphine-like agonist and weak antagonist properties. Analgesic efficacy of propiram, usually 50 or 100mg, appears comparable to that of standard dosages of other oral opioid drugs [i.e. pentazocine, pethidine (meperidine)] in patients with acute pain of moderate to severe intensity arising from various gynaecological and surgical procedures, and may be superior to codeine in gynaecological and postoperative dental pain. Some evidence of a more rapid onset of action for propiram than for these opioid agents, and a longer duration of action for propiram than for codeine, is encouraging but remains to be substantiated in more extensive clinical use. The tolerability profile of propiram resembles those of others in its class, with drowsiness, nausea and vomiting, anddizziness experienced most frequently in controlled trials. The apparently low propensity of propiram for development of physical dependence and psychotomimetic effects requires confirmation with wider clinical experience. Available data thus indicate that propiram is an effective, orally administered opioid analgesic suitable for providing reliefof acute moderate to severe pain arising from various surgical or gynaecological procedures, and that the drug is likely to become a usefulalternative in such conditions where opioid analgesia is appropriate.
