Oramorph Signs, Symptoms, and Side Effects
Only patients who are accustomed to taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain-relievers should use high strength Oramorph with 100 milligrams or more per tablet. If you use high strength Oramorph and your body is not used to the medication, you could potentially overdose — even fatally. For this reason, you should never use Oramorph unless you have a prescription for it from your doctor.
As with any new medication, Oramorph can produce side effects during the early stages of treatment. Common Oramorph side effects include nausea, vomiting, constipation, sweating, lightheadedness, dizziness, and drowsiness. These common side effects associated with Oramorph should go away as the body adjusts to the medication. If they do not go away, or if they become any worse, be sure to notify your doctor promptly.
Serious side effects of this medication, which should be reported to your doctor as soon as possible, include mood changes, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, severe stomach or abdominal pain, difficulty urinating, and signs of your adrenal glands not working well (e.g., loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss).
This is not a complete list of all the potential side effects associated with Oramorph. If you believe you are experiencing a side effect of the medication not mentioned above, call your doctor.
