Infumorph Addiction and Abuse

Infumorph Addiction Hotline

Infumorph is a medication prescribed to patients to relieve severe pain. It is an effective pain-reliever because it changes the way the brain interprets pain.

Infumorph may produce side effects in some patients. Common Infumorph side effects, which do not require medical attention, include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, drowsiness, increased sweating, dry mouth, and pain or redness at the injection site. These common side effects should go away with time. If they do not go away, promptly notify your doctor.

Be sure to tell your doctor right away if you experience more serious side effects of Infumorph, including mood changes, agitation, hallucinations, confusion, difficulty urinating, vision changes, slow or fast heartbeat, severe stomach or abdominal pain, loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss.

Seek emergency medical attention if you experience slow or shallow breathing, fainting, severe drowsiness, difficulty waking up, or seizures after using Infumorph. You should also seek medical attention if you begin to exhibit signs of an allergic reaction, such as rashes, itching or swelling, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.

Infumorph Addiction and Abuse

Depending on which type of Infumorph your doctor gives you, the medication may be injected into a vein, muscle or under the skin. This medication should only be used as directed by your doctor. Your Infumorph dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. For this reason, you should not increase your dosage, use Infumorph more frequently, or use it longer than recommended.

This medication is intended to be used when the first signs of pain occur. Do not wait until your pain has worsened, as Infumorph may be less effective in this case.

Patients using Infumorph exactly as directed may still develop an Infumorph dependence or addiction. Seek help right away if you believe that you or someone in your life is abusing Infumorph. Signs of Infumorph addiction can include losing interest in the hobbies and activities you once enjoyed and becoming obsessed with finding and using Infumorph.

Infumorph Addiction and Abuse
When patients develop an Infumorph addiction or another type of substance use disorder, they are always at risk for relapse even after they enter a rehabilitation program. It is recommended that patients seek an aftercare program to support them after their initial treatment in order to minimize the risk of relapse as much as possible.
