    What structure indicates that this is a potent mu agonist?
    • Image Upload
    • N-CH3
  3. Image Upload
     How do these drugs differ from their parent morphine and codeine structures?
    • Image Upload
    • Presence of the 7,8- dihydro structure and the C6-keto group

     What is the benefit of the reduced 7-8 double bond in these opioids?
    • Increased molecular flexibility
    • C ring can achieve a chair conformation rather than higher energy pseudo-boat conformation
    • Allows Keto to accept an H from ASN
    • High affinity bonding results
    • 8-10x potency over their parent structures

    Half as active as morphine
  6. How does analgesic potency of Hydrocodone compare to codeine?
    8-10x more potent than Codeine

    Yes, 2nd most abused prescription in the US
  8. What is the most abused prescription medication in the US?

    What is this drug?
  13. Image Upload
    What is this drug?
  14. Image Upload
    How does the distribution to the CNS of these drugs compare to Morphine?
    • Image Upload
    • Reduced due to the 14 Beta – OH (H in morphine)
  15. Image Upload
    What effect does this group have on these drugs?
    • Decreases Lop P
    • Decreases CNS distribution
    • Allows for a favorable H-bond with TYR on the mu receptor
    • Properly orients the N-substituent for better mu receptor binding
    • Creates low antitussive activity
  16. Image Upload
    How does the potency of these drugs compare to these?
    Image Upload
    Oxycodone and Oxymorphone (top) have 2-3 times the analgetic activity of hydromorphone and hydrocodone (bottom) RESPECTIVELY
  17. Image Upload
    How does the potency of these drugs compare to these?
    Image Upload
    Oxymorphone and Oxycodone (top) 10-12 times the potency of morphine and codeine (bottom) RESPECTIVELY
  18. Image Upload
    Image UploadHow does Oxycodone’s potency compare to morphine’s?
  19. The sustained release formulation of oxycodone comes in what formulation inteneded to reduce risk of abuse?
    Incorporates the drug in a non-crushable viscous liquid capsule to maintain even blood levels whether the drug is consumed with water or alcohol
  20. How does the risk of sedation and respiratory depression with oxymorphone compare to other drugs?
    Relatively high due to the exceptionally high mu agonism
  21. Oxymorphone should not be use in what patient population?
    • Opioid naive patients
    • Compromised respiration
    • Pain is not significant or not expected to persist
    • Predisposed to CV event
  22. Oxycodone and Oxymorphone have an increase risk of fatal CV event or death by all causes under what conditions?
    • Fatal CV event = 6 months of use
    • Death by all causes = 30 days of use
  23. Can you give Oxycodone orally?
    Yes, stable enough against pre-hepatic and first pass metabolism
  24. Can you give Oxymorphone orally?
    Not recommended, extensively metabolized in the gut and by first pass to C3-glucuronide and sulfate
  25. What drugs are is Oxycodone available in combination with?
    Aspirin and acetaminophen

    • Analgetic
    • (Nalbuphine)
  30. Image Upload
    What structure indicates that this drug will have mu antagonism?
    • Image Upload
    • Cyclobutane ring will fit into the mu antagonist site (though not well)
    • (Nalbuphine)
  31. Image Upload
    Would you expect this drug to percipiate withdrawal if swapped for a mu agonist?
    • Image Upload
    • Yes, because it has potent Kappa agonism and mu antagonism
    • Due to the N-cyclobutylmethyl
    • (Nalbuphine)
  32. Image Upload
    How does this drug’s analgesic activity compare to Morphine?
    • 0.5- 1 times that of morphine
    • (Nalbuphine)

    • Image Upload
    • 14 Beta-OH
  34. Image Upload
    Would you expect a women or man to get a better response from this drug, why?
    • Image Upload
    • Women due to the Kappa agonism
    • (Nalbuphine)
  35. Image Upload
    How does the negative effects profile of this drug compare to a mu agonism?
    • less respiratory depression, constipation, euphoria, and potential for addiction
    • Same as mu agonist: decreases oxygen demand in the myocardium after infarct
    • (Nalbuphine)
  36. Image Upload
    Would you expect Kappa related dysphoria with this drug?
