Spiradoline (U-62066) is a drug which acts as a highly selective κ-opioid agonist.[1] It has analgesic,[2] diuretic[3] and antitussive effects,[4] and produces subjective effects in animals similar to those of ketocyclazocine and allylnormetazocine.[5] The main effect in humans is sedation, along with analgesic and diuretic effects, but significant side effects such as dysphoria and hallucinations have stopped it from being used clinically.[6] Kappa-agonists have been shown to react negatively with the Mu-receptor, instead of having an assumed synergy since they are both opiate receptors, such as with the Mu and Delta receptors(which both mediate pain-relief, euphoria(mainly Mu) and overall potency of Opiate/Opioid effects).
