Alfentanil (trade name Alfenta) is a parenteral short-acting synthetic opioid analgesic drug, used for anaesthesia in surgery. While it gives less cardiovascular complications, it tends to give stronger respiratory depression. Alfentanil is a Schedule II according to the U.S. DEA website.[1]

Alfentanil was discovered at Janssen Pharmaceutica in 1976.
