What Is Morphine?

Side Effects of Morphine

As with any medicine, morphine can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. Most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Common side effects of morphine include, but are not limited to:
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sweating
  • An unusual unpleasant feeling (dysphoria) or an unusual pleasant feeling (euphoria)
  • Constipation (see Morphine and Constipation).
