Morphine sulphate Injection

Morphine sulphate injection is used to relieve moderate to severe pain.

  • Uses:

    • Pain Relief: Morphine injection is used to relieve moderate to severe pain.
    • Preoperative Use: It may also be administered before or during surgery as part of anesthesia.
    • Morphine belongs to the group of medicines called narcotic analgesics, which act on the central nervous system to alleviate pain12.
  • Dosage:

    • Morphine sulfate pentahydrate is usually administered by intramuscular or subcutaneous injection.
    • The dosage typically ranges from 5 to 20 milligrams, depending on the cause of pain and the patient’s response.
    • Doses may be repeated every 4 to 6 hours.
    • For rapid onset of action, it can also be given intravenously2.
  • Safety Considerations:

    • Misuse of opioid medicine can lead to addiction, overdose, or even death.
    • Keep morphine away from others to prevent unauthorized access.
    • Using opioid medicine during pregnancy may cause life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the newborn.
    • Fatal side effects may occur if morphine is combined with alcohol or other drugs that cause drowsiness or slow breathing.
    • Before taking morphine, ensure you do not have:
      • Severe asthma or breathing problems.
      • A stomach or bowel obstruction (including paralytic ileus).
      • Taken an MAO inhibitor in the past 14 days (e.g., isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, or tranylcypromine)3.
