Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Dextropropoxyphene is principally an opioid analgesic. Chemically it is an optical isomer of levopropoxyphene (the (2R,3S) optical isomer with PubChem CID 200742); dextropropoxyphene being the (2S,3R) enantiomer. Marketing in Europe and the US has been discontinued due to concerns of fatal overdoses and heart arrhythmias.
