You could search PubMed and the web, although sometimes the results are ambiguous and a definite answer will remain elusive.

As far as I know, most of the drugs on the market are either agonists at - or have negligible affinity to - the kappa-receptor.

The most potent kappa-antagonist is buprenorphine, followed by naltrexone and naloxone - and those three are the only ones clinically available to my knowledge.
