Diampromide is an opioid analgesic from the ampromide family of drugs, related to other drugs such as propiram. It was invented in the 1960s by American Cyanamid,[1] and can be described as a ring-opened analogue of fentanyl.[1]

Diampromide produces similar effects to other opioids, including analgesia, sedation, dizziness and nausea, and is around the same potency as morphine.[2]

Diampromide is in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act 1970 of the United States as a Narcotic with ACSCN 9615 with a zero aggregate manufacturing quota as of 2014. [3] It is listed under the Single Convention for the Control of Narcotic Substances 1961 and is controlled in most countries in the same fashion as is morphine.
