Etoxeridine (Carbetidine, Atenos) is a 4-phenylpiperidine derivative that is related to the opioid analgesic drug pethidine (meperidine).

Etoxeridine was developed in the 1950s[1] and investigated for use in surgical anesthesia, however it was never commercialised and is not currently used in medicine.[2][3][4]
