Morazone (Novartrina, Orsimon, Rosimon-Neu, Tarcuzate) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), originally developed by the German pharmaceutical company Ravensberg in the 1950s, which is used as an analgesic.[1][2][3] It produces phenmetrazine as a major metabolite and has been reported to have been abused as a recreational drug in the past.[4][5][6][7]
