Morphine (MOP)

Drug of Abuse: Morphine


Morphine is a schedule II controlled substance and is a potent opiate analgesic medication. It is used to relieve severe or agonizing pain and suffering. Like other opioids, such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, and heroin, morphine acts directly on the central nervous system to relieve pain. Unlike other opiates, morphine is an opiate and a natural product. Morphine is highly addictive, but physiological dependency can take several months to develop.
