Phenampromide is an opioid analgesic from the ampromide family of drugs, related to other drugs such as propiram and diampromide. It was invented in the 1960s[1] by American Cyanamid Co.[2] Although never given a general release, it was trialled and 50mg codeine ≈ 60mg phenampromide. Tests on the 2 isomers showed that all of the analgesic effects were caused by the (S) isomer.

Phenampromide produces similar effects to other opioids, including analgesia, sedation, dizziness and nausea.
