Morphine sulfate is a prescription painkiller used for relieving moderate to severe chronic pain. When taken, morphine sulfate binds to opioid receptors in the body which blocks pain signals from being sent to the nervous system. This also produces a strong euphoric effect for the person who is taking it. Morphine sulfate has the potential for misuse and abuse even when it is taken as directed by a doctor; however, carefully following instructions lowers the risk of Morphine Sulfate addiction.
Long-term use of morphine sulfate can lead to dependence, which happens after the body becomes familiar with the presence of the opioid and requires it in order to counteract pain.
Minor side effects of morphine sulfate include:
• Drowsiness • Sweating • Constipation • Nausea • Dizziness • Headache • Loss of appetite
Although they are uncommon, morphine sulfate has the potential to cause serious side effects. If any of the following side effects occur, contact a doctor immediately:
• Slowed breathing and heart rate • Stiff muscles • Convulsions • Difficulty swallowing • Confusion and trouble focusing • Red pinpoint spots on the skin (typically under the eyes)
