Morphine Addiction | Detox 5
Morphine is one of the strongest pain-killing drugs available. Though it is a highly effective medication, it can also be highly addictive. Morphine can be injected, but is typically administered orally in the form of tablets or liquid. With repeated exposure, users will begin to crave the effect that morphine produces. This is commonly how morphine addiction develops. Dependence begins as people need increasingly high doses to achieve the same effects.
Morphine withdrawal is a difficult process for individuals to experience. Anxiety, widespread pain, insomnia, sweating and muscle spasms are just of few of the symptoms which are experienced during withdrawal. These symptoms can start within a few hours after the most recent dose of the drug, one reason the relapse rate for morphine users is high. Morphine withdrawal is a dangerous process since all of the body’s systems experience changes as the effects of the drug wears off.
