Moxazocine (BL-4566) is an opioid analgesic of the benzomorphan family which was never marketed.[1] It acts as a partial agonist or mixed agonist/antagonist of the opioid receptors and binds preferentially to the κ-opioid receptor.[2] Despite its failure to reach the market, clinical studies demonstrated moxazocine to be approximately 10x as potent by weight as morphine as an analgesic.[3]
