Withdrawal happens when a person struggling with morphine sulfate addiction stops taking it. They are likely to experience challenging, unpleasant symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms can occur in as little as 6 hours after the last dose. Common withdrawal symptoms from morphine sulfate include:
• Runny nose
• Frequent yawning
• Teary eyes
• Increased heart rate
• Increased blood pressure
These symptoms normally occur early during the withdrawal process, with more severe symptoms happening around 48 to 72 hours after quitting morphine sulfate. Relapsing is much more likely if a person is trying to cease using drugs without medical supervision; therefore, it is safer and more effective to seek a medical detox center.
Some severe withdrawal symptoms from morphine sulfate are:
• Stomach and muscle pains
• Decreased appetite
The Recovery Village offers 24/7 medical supervision, as well as individual and group therapies paired with medication to ease withdrawal symptoms. The road to recovery starts with finding the right help.
Although detox generally lasts between 5 to 7 days, the severity and timeline depend on a variety of factors such as:
• The amount of morphine sulfate use and abuse
• Biological factors
• If other substances were abused along with morphine sulfate
• Underlying mental health disorders
Medications to relieve morphine sulfate withdrawal symptoms are available to those who choose a detox program. Another benefit of choosing a supervised detox program is the medical guidance and supervision. When someone is detoxing from morphine sulfate, the stress caused by withdrawal may prevent them from thinking clearly. Vomiting and diarrhea are common withdrawal symptoms. A person may be too fatigued to realize that they need to stay hydrated and should take an anti-diarrhea medication.
