I had never heard of it, but you are right. In the US, etorphine is listed as a Schedule I drug. Fentanyl is listed as a Schedule II drug. So I guess it would be hard to have a doctor prescribe etorphine. Can cancer pain be treated with a Schedule I drug? I know cocaine can be used for topical ophthalmic indications, but it is only Schedule II.
