What is Morphine?

Morphine is an opiate that is most commonly used as medical treatment for pain relief. Many people who have morphine addiction do not necessarily go looking for it to get high. Morphine is mostly used for severe chronic pain; however, once it’s prescribed, many people become dependent on it. 

Effects of Morphine Addiction

Although morphine and other opiates relieve pain, they don’t completely eliminate it. Depending on how one takes morphine, it can last in the body for 6 to 24 hours. There are several telltale signs of morphine addiction, below are just a few of them:

Short-term effects:

  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Vomiting
  • Dry mouth
  • Physical weakness 

Long-term effects:

  • Fainting
  • Rashes
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Seizures
  • Skin discoloration

Morphine tolerance can become very high and increase the likeliness of using more of the drug.  If you or someone you know is experiencing the above signs of morphine addiction, help is available at The Treatment Center.

To receive effective medical treatment for morphine addiction, call us at (877) 392-3342 and chat with an admissions counselor today. We are available to help 24/7, including holidays.
