  • Clinical use of flupirtine will be more acceptable as it lacks the typical side effects of the opioid drugs.
  • Approved by European Medicine Agencies, at recommended clinical doses, produces muscle-relaxing effects in the presence of abnormally increased muscle tension.

  • Flupitrine being a K+ channel opener increases the pain threshold of pain sensation.
