Flurpirtine
0 Replies
Fantod - June 20

Flupirtine is a widely known analgesic drug that is approved for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, particularly musculoskeletal pain. However, it is neither an NSAID nor an opioid. Given pending trials of flupirtine for the treatment of Fibromyalgia pain, an understanding of Flupirtine’s (unique?) mechanism of analgesic action is of both clinical and basic science interest.

Flurpirtine may represent a novel class of analgesic drug. As such, it would be useful for the treatment of types of pains normally not amenable to conventional (NSAID or opioid) pharmacotherapy. It could also spawn new avenues of analgesic drug discovery efforts, according to recent thoughts.

Unfortunately, this drug is currently NOT available in the USA.
