Arespiratory study has been done to compare the respiratory effects of a potent new analgesic, nefopam, to morphine. Morphine was a potent respiratory depressant at therapeutic dosage while nefopam was not. 

Topics from this paper

The effects of nefopam on blood acid‐base status in the rabbit: interactions with morphine in the mouse and rabbit
TLDR
Nefopam, a non‐narcotic analgesic, had only minor effects upon the blood pH, Pco2 and standard bicarbonate of the conscious rabbit, and when nefopam was administered in conjunction with morphine the increase in P co2 was greater than with morphine alone. Expand
The Analgesic and Hypothermic Effects of Nefopam, Morphine, Aspirin, Diphenhydramine, and Placebo
TLDR
No statistically significant differences in pain intensity or relief were seen for nefopam (Acupan), diphenhydramine (Benadryl), aspirin, or placebo despite a numerically higher score for ne fopam despite a unexpectantly high placebo response. Expand
Nefopam in postoperative pain.
TLDR
Three comparable groups of surgical patients were given nefopam 0.4 mg kg-1 or morphine 0.15 mgkg-1 for pain relief after operation and produced no obvious cardiovascular or respiratory side-effects. Expand
Rediscovery of Nefopam for the Treatment of Neuropathic Pain
TLDR
The recently discovered dual analgesic mechanisms of action, namely, descending pain modulation by triple neurotransmitter reuptake inhibition similar to antidepressants, and inhibition of long-term potentiation mediated by NMDA from the inhibition of calcium influx like gabapentinoid anticonvulsants or blockade of voltage-sensitive sodium channels like carbamazepine, enable NFP to be used as a therapeutic agent to treat neuropathic pain.

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. Expand
A Comparison of the Analgesic Effect of Intramuscular Nefopam and Morphine in Patients with Postoperative Pain
TLDR
Nefopam is chemically Gasse13 recognized that the drug had an unrelated to any known class of analgesics analgesic effect in his human experimental and is pharmacologically distinct from model for muscle relaxant activity. Expand
Oral nefopam and aspirin
TLDR
Treatment effects were consistent and indicative of good dose response to both active medications, and pain relief scores were more variable but were generally in accordance with SPID values. Expand
A comparison of a new analgesic, nefopam hydrochloride, with morphine sulphate, pentazocine and pethidine hydrochloride in post-operative pain
TLDR
It is suggested that nefopam is a sufficiently potent analgesic agent to control post-operative pain, with a relatively low incidence of side-effects. Expand
Comparison of the Analgesic Dose‐Effect Relationships of Nefopam and Oxycodone in Postoperative Pain
TLDR
Drowsiness and a decrease in the respiratory rate were the principal side‐effects of oxycodone, whereas tachycardia, restlessness, sweating and nausea were more frequent after nefopam. Expand
Nefopam, a non-opioid analgesic, does not alleviate experimental work/effort dyspnoea in healthy humans: A randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
In this study, nefopam did not exhibit any effects on dyspnoea and was not studied as a control for Somaesthetic evoked potentials. Expand

In healthy male volunteers, morphine in combination with d‐tubocurarine produces a greater decrease in responsiveness to end expiratory carbon dioxide than does morphine alone.

TLDR
A controlled study was carried out in human volunteers to compare the respiratory effects of codeine and morphine administered intramuscularly and codeine administered orally and intram1lScularly and it was concluded that similar degrees of respiratory depression are induced. Expand
