Possible illegal drug synthesis.
« on: March 03, 2020, 12:48:20 AM »
With the availability of narcan is there no concern clandestine labs migh find a way to synthesize analgesics from it? Since it was originally synthesized from oxycodone, and chemical rings of agonists, and antagonists are so similar.

Nah, nothing wrong with the question.

generally speaking: there are many medicines that could be used as intermediates for a synthesis of drugs. Those that are easy to use are typically regulated.

Sometimes it has a side effect of medicines that become unavailable, which is a problem for those using them to treat some condition. Several years ago someone wrote a tongue-in-a-cheek paper testing whether it is possible to go the other way - produce an active component of a medicine from a drug available on the black market.

It actually worked.
