Dolophine is an opioid analgesic prescribed to treat severe, ongoing pain, such as pain due to cancer. This medication can also be used in conjunction with a treatment program to help treat opioid addiction.

Dolophine is classified as an opioid analgesic. It changes the way that the brain responds to pain. By influencing the brain in this way, the body then feels less pain. This medication should only be used to treat ongoing pain and is not meant for managing mild or breakthrough pain.

Common side effects associated with using Dolophine include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness, and sweating. Most of these side effects of Dolophine do not require medical attention and should go away with time. If they do not go away or get worse, promptly let your doctor know.

You should report the following serious Dolophine side effects to your doctor right away if they become noticeable: mood changes, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, abdominal pain, difficulty urinating, loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss.

Get emergency medical attention if you notice any of the following symptoms after using Dolophine: fainting, seizures, severe drowsiness, difficulty waking up, and symptoms of a serious allergic reaction to Dolophine such as rash, itching or swelling of the face or throat, severe dizziness, and difficulty breathing.
