Our study shows that hydromorphone is as effective as diacetylmorphine
, providing a licensed alternative to treat severe opioid use disorder.
Both opioid agonist treatment and diacetylmorphine
patients reported similar proportions of lifetime use--about 85%--but diacetylmorphine
patients had lower proportions of prolonged benzodiazepine use (37% vs.
versus methadone for the treatment of opioid addiction.

A medical treatment for diacetylmorphine
heroin addiction: A clinical trial with methadone hydrochloride.
Dextropropoxyphene/dicylomine (Proxyvon) and diacetylmorphine
(heroin) were the commonest drugs injected (81 and 73.
Preliminary investigations and TLC experiments of most of the toffee samples gave negative tests for diacetylmorphine
(heroin), diazepam, cocaine, diphenhydramine, methaqualone, and caffeine, but methaqualone was present in one of the toffee samples (brandy).
Bayer began production of diacetylmorphine
and coined the name
Technically called diacetylmorphine
, it became better known by its catchy tradename.
Accord ingly, Bayer christened diacetylmorphine
"heroin" and began to market it as a cough suppressant, often advertising it on the same bill as aspirin
Until now, the authorities have imported between 150 and 200 kilogrammes per year of pure heroin, also known as diacetylmorphine
That this occurred during the nineteenth century, the great era of chemistry, would seem no accident: Sir Humphry Davy gave the first paper on nitrous oxide in 1800; in 1806 morphine became the first alkaloid to be isolated from its organic base; German scientists isolated cocaine in the middle of the century; Alexander Wood perfected the hypodermic syringe in 1874; and diacetylmorphine
, or heroin, was discovered in 1898.
