Morphine Oral

A healthcare provider may prescribe morphine products to help relieve pain. Morphine is an opiate pain reliever and is an active ingredient in many different prescription medications.
 
Morphine is available in many different forms, such as tablets, extended-release tablets or capsules, and morphine oral solution. There are also injectable versions of morphine available. The particular directions for each product can vary substantially, so make sure to refer to the information for your specific morphine medication. For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not increase your dose without your healthcare provider's approval. Do not suddenly stop taking morphine, especially if you have taken it regularly for more than several weeks.
 
Morphine works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body and produces numerous different effects. Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Possible side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, and nausea.
