Butonitazene is an analgesic opioid of the benzimidazole opioid class, a designer variety of etonitazine analogs. Butonitazene is tens of times superior to morphine when administered intravenously, as was found in chemical studies in rodents. Butonitazene acts as a powerful analgesic, hypnotic, and sedative. Vomiting and respiratory depression may occur at high doses of Butonitazene. You can only buy Butonitazene online as a designer drug for chemical research.
Its effects are similar to other opioids like fentanyl and heroin, including analgesia, euphoria, sleepiness. Adverse effects include vomiting, and respiratory depression that can potentially be fatal. Because of high dependency potential and dangerous adverse effects it has never been introduced in pharmacotherapy.
