Morphine Side Effects

Morphine has many side effects including the most dangerous which is respiratory depression. Common Morphine side effects are nausea and vomiting due to the action of morphine stimulating centers in the brain concerned with vomiting called the chemotactic trigger zone. Other central nervous system side effects of morphine are cough suppression, sedation, and dependence leading to addiction. Morphine can also cause histamine release, which causes itching of the skin and nose as well as a mild flushing of the skin.

Morphine side effects include but are not limited to:

  • anxiety
  • involuntary movement of the eyeball

  • "pinpoint" pupils
  • chills

  • Drug Facts
  • By the early 19th century, morphine had been extracted in a pure form suitable for solution. With the introduction of the hypodermic needle in the mid-19th century, injection of the solution became the common method of administration.
  • Research has demonstrated that, when methadone is given in regular doses by a physician, it has the ability to block the euphoria caused by heroin if the individual does try to take heroin.
  • Physicians may also be prescribing methadone more often given the media and law enforcement attention that has been focused on the abuse of other opiate drugs, in particular OxyContin.
  • Individuals are as physically dependent on methadone as they were to heroin or other opiates; this is not recovery from drug addiction.
