Pharmacokinetics of intravenously administered nicomorphine and its metabolites in man.

Abstract

Intravenous doses of 30, 20 and 10 mg nicomorphine (Vilan) are extremely quickly metabolized into the metabolites 6-nicotinoylmorphine and morphine. The half-lives of elimination are respectively 3 min for nicomorphine, 3 and 15 min for 6-nicotinoylmorphine, and 135-190 min for morphine. The kinetics of the 30 and 20 mg dose are comparable, the 10 mg dose… (More)
