List of fentanyl analogues

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of some fentanyl analogues (Fentalogs).[1][2][3]

The list has [famous] chemical compounds from (drug companies or) pharmaceutical companies for legitimate medical use. The list also has compounds that have been sold as designer drugs and reported to drug control agencies such as the DEA, or EMCDDA and UNODC.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10]
