Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to nefopam hydrochloride (CAS RN 23327-57-3). Nefopam is used to relieve acute and chronic pain (for example pain after an operation, dental pain, joint or muscle pain, after an injury, or pain caused by cancer). Nefopam is a centrally acting analgesic with a rapid onset of action. The main site of action appears to be in the central nervous system both at the brain and spinal levels. The mechanism of action is unclear. In vitro experiments have shown nefopam to inhibit the reuptake of various catecholamines (including noradrenaline, serotonin and dopamine). It is possible that the mechanism of action of nefopam is at least in part by altering the levels of these neuromodulators in the brain and at the spinal level. Nefopam has been shown to have sympathomimetic and anticholinergic actions.
