Three comparable groups of surgical patients were given nefopam 0.2 mg kg-1 or 0.4 mg kg-1 or morphine 0.15 mg kg-1 for pain relief after operation. Nefopam 0.4 mg kg-1 was equi-analgesic with morphine 0.15 mg kg-1 and produced no obvious cardiovascular or respiratory side-effects.

Intraoperative Nefopam Reduces Acute Postoperative Pain after Laparoscopic Gastrectomy: a Prospective, Randomized Study
TLDR
Intraoperative nefopam decreased postoperative pain and opioid consumption in the acute postoperative period after laparoscopic gastrectomy, and may be considered as a component of multimodal analgesia after Laparoscopic Gastrectomy. Expand
Assessment of the analgesic efficacy of nefopam hydrochloride after upper abdominal surgery: A study using patient controlled analgesia
TLDR
It is confirmed that nefopam hydrochloride has significant analgesic effects and would be a useful supplement to morphine in the management of postoperative pain. Expand
Association of nefopam use with postoperative nausea and vomiting in gynecological patients receiving prophylactic ramosetron: A retrospective study
TLDR
The combined use of nefopam with fentanyl in IV PCA was not associated with the higher incidence of PonV compared with the use of ketorolac and fentanyl combination in patients who received ramosetron as PONV prophylactic agent. Expand
Single dose oral nefopam for acute postoperative pain in adults.
TLDR
In the absence of evidence of efficacy for oral nefopam in acute postoperative pain, its use in this indication is not justified and use in other indications should be evaluated carefully. Expand
Median effective dose (ED50) of paracetamol and nefopam for postoperative pain: isobolographic analysis of their antinociceptive interaction.
TLDR
The combination of nefopam and paracetamol produces effective analgesia with a synergistic interaction, and a supra-additive interaction of the two drugs was demonstrated. Expand
Effective dose of nefopam in 80% of patients (ED80): a study using the continual reassessment method.
TLDR
The continual reassessment method (CRM) was used to determine the effective dose of nefopam in 80% of the patients suffering from moderate pain in the postoperative period with reasonable accuracy in a small number of patients as compared with the classical dose-probability curve fitting. Expand
Fatal overdosage with nefopam (Acupan).
TLDR
A fatality due to massive, intravenous self-administration of nefopam (Acupan), a non-opiate central analgesic, in a 37-year-old female is presented with the usual reservations concerning possible postmortem redistribution. Expand
Nefopam: A Review of its Pharmacological Properties and Therapeutic Efficacy
TLDR
Nefopam is a non-narcotic analgesic not structurally related to other analgesic drugs, and when appropriate dose ratios were compared in short term studies it was shown to produce analgesia comparable to that with the oral analgesics aspirin, dextropropoxyphene and pentazocine, as well as that with ‘moderate’ doses of parenteral morphine, pethidine and pentacine.

Old is Gold? Nefopam Hydrochloride, a Non-opioid and Non-steroidal Analgesic Drug and Its Practical One-Pot Synthesis in a Single Solvent for Large-Scale Production
Nefopam hydrochloride is extensively used in most of the European countries until today as an analgesic because of its non-opiate (non-narcotic) and non-steroidal action with fewer side effectsExpand
Effets analgésiques de l'administration intraveineuse continue de néfopam après chirurgie urologique
TLDR
L'administration continue de nefopam ne reduit pas the consommation de morphine et n'ameliore pas l'analgesie ni les effets indesirables lors of the chirurgie urologique lourde. Expand

TLDR
The feasibility of well-controlled analgesic assays employing the double-dummy technique to compare suppositoreis with oral or parenteral analgesic dosage forms is demonstrated and the rectal route is suggested to be acceptable and practical way of administering potent analgesics. Expand
