Viminol Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Viminol is an opioid analgesic developed by the drugs company Zambon in the 1960s. It has an unusual chemical structure that is not similar to other opioids. It has both antitussive and analgesic effects. It has six different stereoisomers which have varying properties, with the 2-(R) isomer being a ?-opioid full agonist around 5 times more potent than morphine, while the 2-(S) isomer is an antagonist. Since vimonol is supplied as a racemic mixture of isomers, the overall effect produces a mixed agonist-antagonist profile similar to that of opioids such as pentazocine, although with somewhat less side effects. It has similar effects to other opioids, and produces analgesia, sedation and euphoria.
