Piminodine (Alvodine) is an opioid analgesic that is an analogue of pethidine (meperidine).[1] It was used in medicine briefly during the 1960s and 70s, but has largely fallen out of clinical use.

Piminodine has similar effects to other opioids, and produces analgesia, sedation and euphoria. Side effects can include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression which can be life-threatening.[2][3]
