Oramorph Withdrawal and Detox
High strength Oramorph with 100 milligrams or more per tablet should be used only by patients who have been regularly taking large to moderate amounts of opioid pain-relievers. Taking high doses of Oramorph when your body is not adjusted to taking opioids may cause overdose or even death. Additionally, extended-relief Oramorph should not be used to relieve mild or short-term pain.
Common side effects associated with Oramorph include nausea, vomiting, constipation, sweating, lightheadedness, dizziness and drowsiness. These common side effects do not require medical attention and should subside as your body adjusts to Oramorph. If they do not subside, or if they become worse, call your doctor.
Other more serious side effects, which should be reported to your doctor immediately, are 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 side effects. Talk to your doctor if you feel you are experiencing other side effects of Oramorph that are not listed above.
Medications that have been shown to cause an interaction with Oramorph are naltrexone and opioid agonists/antagonists such as pentazocine, nalbuphine, and butorphanol.
The risk of experiencing serious Oramorph side effects may increase if Oramorph is taken with other medications shown to cause drowsiness or breathing problems. Let your doctor or pharmacist know if you are using any of the following substances: codeine, hydrocodone, alcohol, cannabis, sleeping pills, alprazolam, lorazepam, zolpidem, carisoprodol, cyclobenzaprine, cetirizine, and diphenhydramine.
