[Postoperative nausea and vomiting after laparoscopic cholecystectomy under total intravenous anesthesia using propofol combined with fentanyl or pentazocine] [2007.11]
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in propofol-anesthetized patients receiving either fentanyl or pentazocine as opioid supplement... CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of PONV in propofol-anesthetized patients receiving pentazocine as opioid supplement is not different from that in patients receiving fentanyl.

Effects of Pentazocine Versus Lorazepam or Placebo on Manic Symptoms [Recruiting]
Pilot data indicates that pentazocine decreases manic symptoms in hospitalized individuals.
To follow up these initial findings, we plan to conduct a larger, more rigorous,
double-blind study. We will examine whether pentazocine, an agent with kappa-opiate
activity, decreases manic symptoms.
Effects of Pentazocine on Manic Symptoms [Active, not recruiting]
The opiate neurotransmitter system is thought to be involved in many abnormal mood states.
Some researchers have suggested that changes in this system may trigger the switch to/from
manic and depressive states in bipolar disorder. One problem with most of the currently
available opiate medications is that they can produce addiction/dependence. A particular
kind of opiate medication known as kappa-opiates may be able to produce changes in this
system with much less risk of addiction. This study looks at Talwin (a combination of
pentazocine and naloxone), a medication which affects the kappa and mu opiate systems. The
study will examine whether two doses of Talwin affect manic symptoms in people who have been
admitted to the hospital. This study will give more information about the involvement of the
opiate system in bipolar disorder, and give important information for use in developing new
