Sublingual morphine

Dealing with pain is a very difficult experience, as many people cannot understand what you are going through and the common over the counter (OTC) medications really don’t pass muster. Sure, you can try Ibuprofen (Motrin), Naproxen Sodium, or Tylenol, but let’s be honest, they don’t have anything on major pain.

If you have ever suffered from headaches, major injuries, major surgeries, or chronic inflammatory conditions, then you will understand the need for something stronger. This is where a class of pain killers, called opioids, comes in handy. In this class are a variety of mid to extra strength pain killers that are both highly effective and highly addicting. As a result, morphine, one of the most effective pain killers, and its opioid family, are controlled substances, meaning you need a prescription to get them. Some of the others in this family are Oxycodone, Percocet, and heroin, which is an illegal drug. Methadone, the substance used to wean people from heroin, is also part of this family.

However, anyone that understands the risks of these drugs will also know how to handle them. You will need the guidance of a doctor to make sure you do not become addicted, but to also make sure that your body does not reach a stage in which they lose their effectiveness.

Morphine works by directly affecting the way in which the central nervous system (CNS) handles pain. It slows down the pain receptors so that your body can effectively stop feeling sensations of pain. It is very fast to act on pain, which is one of the reasons it is such a popular way to treat chronic pain.

There are a variety of ways to take morphine, but the most popular are via injection, a patch, or sublingually. Sublingual morphine works by going under the tongue, where it is immediately absorbed into the bloodstream via the saliva ducts. This makes sublingual morphine a very easy way to stop pain quickly. With sublingual morphine, the tablets look like pills, but you place them under the tongue, where they slowly start to break up. They typical dose is five to 30 milligrams every three to four hours.

Most doctors will probably be hesitant to prescribe sublingual morphine, as it is often a last resort for pain treatment. This is not because it is ineffective, but because it is such an addictive substance. Doctors prefer to use it in cases where the patient will only need it for a short time, such as after surgery or while in a hospice. In fact, it is often used to help dying patients spend their final days without pain. High doses over a long period of time can be fatal.

If you feel that you need morphine to help you treat your pain, then I recommend seeing a doctor and explaining your situation. Some of the cases that merit sublingual morphine are chronic back pain, inflammatory arthritis, and post trauma or surgery. In the past, morphine was used to treat soldiers on the battlefield so that the medics could keep them still long enough to perform the necessary surgery or treatment. Although it isn’t used to that effect any longer, it can still be used to numb pain during surgery or a trip with an ambulance. Outside of a prescription, you can find sublingual morphine in other countries, such as Canada, Mexico, India, and China. In many of these countries, a prescription is not needed and people can find it via pharmaceutical companies. If you live in North America, then your best bet for cheap sublingual morphine is in Canada.
