Morphine is a very strong pain killer that is widely used in pain management to treat individuals who have experienced surgery or major injury or who have terminal cancer. It is also one of the main drugs used for recreational purposes and is potentially highly physically and psychologically addictive.
Some of the street names for morphine include God's drug, MS, Morf, Morpho, Dreamer, First Line, Emsel, Unkie and Mr Blue.
Since morphine has several clinical uses, there are several brand names under which the drug is sold. Some of the most widely used brands include: MSiR®, MS-Contin®, Roxanol®, RMS®, Kadian® and oramorph SR®. A major form of injectable morphine is available as morphine sulphate.
Slow release and immediate-release formulations are available. The slow release agents are those that have a delayed onset but longer duration of action whereas the immediate-release formulations provide rapid pain relief.
