Morphine Withdrawal

What is Morphine

 

Morphine is one of the most widely abused drugs in North America and Worldwide. Addiction is nothing now, but what is new is the super worrying trend of increasing deaths due to Morphine overdose. In part, this can be said to be due to a number of factors such as:

 

  • Lack of education around Morphine
  • Increase in Pharmaceutical Prescriptions generally
  • A failure of Governments worldwide to do enough to stop Morphine addiction and related deaths
  • Societal thinking regarding addicts and Morphine addiction
  • Lack of Harm Reduction methods around Morphine usage
  • Lack of addiction related education in the medical professional

 

Further reading about Morphine from around the web

Morphine is a pain medication of the opiate family that is found naturally in a dark brown, resinous form, from the poppy plant (Papaver somniferum). It can be taken orally, sublingually, via inhalation, the trans-dermal route, inter-anally as well as via injection (both subcutaneously as well as more commonly intravenously. It acts directly on the central nervous system (CNS) to induce analgesia and alter perception and emotional response to pain. Physical and psychological dependence and tolerance may develop with repeated administration. It can be taken for both acute pain and chronic pain and is frequently used for pain from myocardial infarction, kidney stones, and during labor. Morphine can be administered by mouth, by injection into a muscle, by injection under the skin, intravenously, injection into the space around the spinal cord, or rectally. Its maximum effect is reached after about 20 minutes when administered intravenously and 60 minutes when administered by mouth, while the duration of its effect is 3–7 hours. Long-acting formulations of morphine are available as MS-Contin, Kadian, and other brand names as well as generically.

Potentially serious side effects of morphine include decreased respiratory effort, vomiting, nausea, and low blood pressure. Morphine is addictive and prone to abuse. If one’s dose is reduced after long-term use, opioid withdrawal symptoms may occur. Common side effects of morphine include drowsiness, vomiting, and constipation. Caution is advised for use of morphine during pregnancy or breast feeding, as it may affect the health of the baby.

Morphine was first isolated between 1803 and 1805 by German pharmacist Friedrich Sertürner. This is generally believed to be the first isolation of an active ingredient from a plant. Merck began marketing it commercially in 1827. Morphine was more widely used after the invention of the hypodermic syringe in 1853–1855. Sertürner originally named the substance morphium, after the Greek god of dreams, Morpheus, as it has a tendency to cause sleep.

The primary source of morphine is isolation from poppy straw of the opium poppy. In 2013, approximately 523 tons of morphine were produced. Approximately 45 tons were used directly for pain, an increase over 400% the last twenty years. Most use for this purpose was in the developed world. About 70 percent of morphine is used to make other opioids such as hydromorphone, oxymorphone, and heroin. It is a Schedule II drug in the United States, Class A in the United Kingdom, and Schedule I in Canada. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. Morphine is sold under many trade names. In 2019, it was the 163rd most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than 3 million prescriptions.

What Are Morphine Withdrawal Symptoms?

 

Withdrawal from Morphine is a serious matter. The effects on the body from Morphine use is extreme, and because of these effects Morphine withdrawal can very quickly become an acute medical emergency. Withdrawal from Morphine can cause a hypertensive crisis or myocardial infraction. In other words, a stroke or heart attack caused by sudden stoppage in taking Morphine or respiratory distress syndrome whereby your body shuts down from the lungs and respiratory system outwards.  Morphine withdrawal can also lead to serious anxiety and mental health related issues.

 

Never in any circumstances underestimate the seriousness of Morphine withdrawal1https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2891684/. If you are withdrawing from Morphine it is advisable to seek medical attention and in the case of medical emergency from Morphine withdrawal do not hesitate to head to the nearest Emergency Room.

 

Morphine withdrawal will vary for everyone and will be affected by several factors. The length and severity of Morphine use with be one of the main predictors of withdrawal symptoms and intensity. With Morphine withdrawal, it’s impossible to accurately predict how an individual will react to withdrawal.

 

Morphine Withdrawal Timeline

 

Full Morphine withdrawal often takes seven to fourteen days but sometimes longer, and the Morphine withdrawal symptoms are categorized according to their severity.

 

There are no minor symptoms of Morphine withdrawal. The first symptoms to exhibit themselves, usually 3-12 hours after Morphine withdrawal starts proper are headaches, tremors, sweating, itching, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever and total confusion with anxiety or depression.

 

These are followed relatively quickly by the next stage in Morphine withdrawal timeline by:

 

  • Insomnia
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Confusion
  • Tremors
  • Anxiety
  • Digestive discomfort
  • Headaches
  • Heart palpitations
  • Panic attacks
  • Muscle pain
  • Psychosis
  • Delirium tremens
  • Relapse

 

Worryingly, every time an individual attempts Morphine withdrawal the severity of symptoms tends to increase.

 

Morphine withdrawal has a mortality rate of between three and 19 per cent, depending on seriousness of Morphine usage.

 

Withdrawal from Morphine is a physically demanding process, in which the body will utilize every means possible to remove toxins, while creating psychological challenges because of the changes to the individuals brain chemistry.

 

Morphine Detox Process

 

The severity of Morphine detox makes it a process that should be approached carefully. Morphine Detox, especially for those with a heavy or long-lasting Morphine dependency, produces a range of symptoms and in extreme cases withdrawal can be fatal. However much they may want to end their addiction to Morphine, it’s vital to seek medical advice and enlist the support of their loved ones.

 

Morphine Withdrawal at a Rehab

 

Detoxing from Morphine within a treatment facility ensures medical help if it’s needed during the treatment process. Because Morphine rebound is a significant danger during withdrawal, having medical personnel present 24-hours a day can mean an instant response to any hypertensive or life-threatening crisis that may occur as a professional tapering process lowers the chances of patients experiencing fatal episodes.

 

Morphine withdrawal and detox begins with an initial medical exam to determine the patient’s physical condition upon entry into the rehab. This pre-detox Morphine withdrawal period can last up to 24 hours, as medical personnel determines both the patient’s general medical condition and drug history.

 

Detoxification of the patient’s body from Morphine begins after the pre-detox period ends. Medically assisted or tapered withdrawal from Morphine can take up to a few weeks to complete.

Rapid Detox from Morphine

 

Rapid detox from Morphine is a controversial topic and one that is unlikely to be accepted by everyone for its positive uses. It is a concept that has helped individuals addicted to Morphine and other drugs kick the habit and gain the help they need to live a healthier lifestyle.

 

A patient undergoing a rapid detox from Morphine is put under anaesthesia for up to six hours. During this time, an opioid antagonist drug such as naltrexone is used to remove the Morphine from the patient’s body. Rapid detox can alleviate some of the more distressing symptoms of Morphine withdrawal.

 

The Morphine rapid detox method is used to stop a patient from feeling the devastating effects of Morphine withdrawal. Sedating the patient and putting them under anaesthesia allows them to “sleep” through the initial heavy Morphine withdrawal and detox process. The hope is that after the rapid detox process, the patient will wake up with their body completely clean of Morphine. The remainder of the withdrawal process will be minimal enabling the person to get on with the rehab process. Throughout rapid detox, the patient is monitored to ensure safety.

 

Does Morphine Rapid Detox Help Withdrawal Symptoms?

 

Experts claim that rapid detox from Morphine is a safe way to cleanse the body. It is also more pleasant as individuals who go through Morphine withdrawal can experience shakes, sweats, nausea, and other issues for long periods.

Morphine withdrawal can take weeks to fully complete. However, rapid detox from Morphine can take only a few days to a week at most. While the process of undergoing anaesthesia is just a few hours, Morphine detox patients can be kept in a medical clinic for monitoring afterwards. The process enables a patient to get – for many – the most difficult and frightening part of rehab out of the way. Once completed, patients can focus on the mental and emotional side of recovery.

 

For most Morphine addicts, the biggest barrier of attending rehab is withdrawal. The pain and distress Morphine withdrawal can have on a person can drive them back to using. Therefore, limiting or stopping a person’s physical Morphine withdrawal symptoms allows them to focus on making a full recovery.

 

By completing a residential rehab program following rapid detox, individuals can fully recover from their Morphine addiction.
