naloxone/pentazocine is a form of morphine?
13 Feb 2011
Let me see if I can explain this. Talwin is another name for naxolone/ pentazocine. Naxolone is used for opiate withdrawl as it binds to the mu opiod receptors in the brain blocking the opiate from being effective. Pentazocine is used as an analgesic (pain reliever) and it too blocks the mu opoid receptor in the brain. So basically they act all the same, though they have different uses. Naxolone/pentazocine is not another name for morphine. Hope that helps,
