Bremazocine is a κ-opioid receptor agonist related to pentazocine. It has potent and long-lasting analgesic and diuretic effects.[1] It has 200 times the activity of morphine, but appears to have no addictive properties and does not depress breathing.[2] The crystal structure of bremazocine was determined in 1984 [3]
