Butorphanol Tartrate

Butorphanol tartrate is an opioid analgesic (induces analgesia and narcosis); antitussive agent (suppresses cough); narcotic antagonist (inhibits the effect of narcotics on the central nervous system); narcotic (caused somnolence or induced sleep).

Butorphanol tartrate is a synthetic opioid analgesic with narcotic antagonist action. It is used in the management of severe pain. In addition to analgesia, CNS effects include depression of spontaneous respiratory activity and cough, stimulation of the emetic center, miosis and sedation. 1, 2

Butorphanol tartrate injection is a sterile, parenteral, aqueous solution of butorphanol tartrate for intravenous or intramuscular administration. In dogs, the drug is used for the relief of chronic nonproductive cough associated with tracheo-bronchitis, trachitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, and pharyngitis associated with inflammatory conditions of the upper respiratory tract. 3
