Lofentanil is a pure mu-opioid receptor agonist derived from fentanyl. It is the most potent opioid to be administered to humans, about 500-1000 times more potent than morphine. Lofentanil provides a higher affinity quotient with longer dissociation times for the mu-receptors than fentanyl. The clinical study of the compound is difficult because there is a very individual sensibility. The appropriate doses are not easy to evaluate. Reversal of the loventanil depression needs very high and repeated naloxone dose. Practical use of lofentanil is limited. Lofentanil side effects are: nausea, vomiting and sedation.

PRIMARY Lofentanil is one of the most potent opioid analgesics known and is an analogue of fentanyl, which was developed in 1960. It is most similar to the highly potent opioid carfentanil (4-carbomethoxyfentanyl), only slightly more potent. Lofentanil can be described as 3-methylcarfentanil, or 3-methyl-4-carbomethoxyfentanyl. While 3-methylfentanyl is considerably more potent than fentanyl itself, lofentanil is only slightly stronger than carfentanil.(1)(2) This suggests that substitution at both the 3 and 4 positions of the piperidine ring introduces steric hindrance which prevents .MU.-opioid affinity from increasing much further. As with other 3-substituted fentanyl derivatives such as ohmefentanyl, the stereoisomerism of lofentanil is very important, with some stereoisomers being much more potent than
