Were you looking for information about Morphine? Morphien is a common misspelling of morphine.
Morphine is an active ingredient in many prescription pain relievers. As a type of opioid narcotic, the drug works to relieve pain by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body. It is also classified as a controlled substance that has a high potential for both physical and psychological abuse. Although most people tolerate it well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements).
