Cyprenorphine

Cyprenorphine is an opioid drug. It is related to more well-known opioids such as buprenorphine, used as an analgesic and for the treatment of opioid addiction, diprenorphine, used as an antidote to reverse the effects of other opioids. Cyprenorphine has mixed agonist–antagonist effects at opioid receptors, like those of buprenorphine; however the effects of cyprenorphine are somewhat different, as it produces pronounced dysphoric and hallucinogenic effects which limit its potential use as an analgesic. Cyprenorphine has been shown to suppress the intake of sweet solution but doesn't suppress the increase in food consumption that's produced by the alpha-2-adrenoceptor antagonist idazoxan. Idazoxan may lead to the release of endogenous opioid peptides and increase food intake, this effect is attenuated by -naloxone but not by the mu/delta-antagonist cyprenorphine
