They explain why many non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are unsuitable for over-the-counter (OTC) use and why the OTC drugs have different …

3 non Opioid analgesics

Abstract A series of 3-(aminoalkyl)- and 3-[(4-aryl-1-piperazinyl)alkyl]oxazolo[4, 5-b]pyridin-2(3H)-ones were prepared from their respective oxazolo[4, 5-b]pyridin-2(3H)-ones. Several members of this group were found to possess potent analgesic activity in the mouse during a p-phenylquinone writhing induced test. Among them, phenylpiperazine compounds with two-carbon length alkyl chains, 2a and 2b, appeared by high analgesic with little toxicity …
