Adanon - A synthetic opioid that is used as the hydrochloride. It is an opioid analgesic that is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. It has actions and uses similar to those of morphine. It also has a depressant action on the cough center and may be given to control intractable cough associated with terminal lung cancer. Adanon is also used as part of the treatment of dependence on opioid drugs, although prolonged use of Adanon itself may result in dependence. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1082-3)
Indication: For the treatment of dry cough, drug withdrawal syndrome, opioid type drug dependence, and pain.
Adanon is a synthetic opioid analgesic with multiple actions quantitatively similar to those at morphine, the most prominent of which involve the central nervous system and organs composed of smooth muscle. However, Adanon is more active and more toxic than morphine. Adanon is indicated for relief of severe pain, for detoxification treatment of narcotic addiction, and for temporary maintenance treatment of narcotic addiction. The principal actions of therapeutic value are analgesia and sedation and detoxification or temporary maintenance in narcotic addiction. The Adanon abstinence syndrome, although qualitatively similar to that of morphine, differs in that the onset is slower, the course is more prolonged, and the symptoms are less severe.
