Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to dipyrone sodium (CAS RN 68-89-3) and dipyrone sodium monohydrate (CAS RN 5907-38-0). Dipyrone, also known as metamizole, is a pyrazole that is antipyrine substituted at C-4 by a methyl(sulfomethyl)amino group. The sodium salt, dipyrone sodium, was widely used as a powerful analgesic and antipyretic, but it was withdrawn from many markets beginning in the 1970s due to a risk of causing agranulocytosis. It has a role as an antipyretic, an antirheumatic drug, a nonnarcotic analgesic, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), a peripheral nervous system drug, a prodrug and a cyclooxygenase (COX)-3 inhibitor (2). Approvals of the new drug application (NDA)'s for dipyrone drug products were withdrawn on June 27, 1977 and the product was withdrawn from the Canadian market in 1963.
