Aldolan is a synthetic opiate agonist belonging to the phenylpiperidine class. Aldolan may produce less smooth muscle spasm, constipation, and depression of the cough reflex than equivalent doses of morphine. The onset of action is lightly more rapid than with morphine, and the duration of action is slightly shorter. The chemical structure of Aldolan is similar to local anesthetics. Aldolan is recommended for relief of moderate to severe acute pain and has the unique ability to interrupt postoperative shivering and shaking chills induced by amphotericin B. Aldolan has also been used for intravenous regional anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks and intraarticular, epidural and spinal analgesia. Aldolan is considered a second-line agent for the treatment of acute pain.
