Morphine belongs to the class of medications called narcotic analgesics (pain relievers). This medication is used to treat severe chronic pain. It acts on the brain to increase pain tolerance. This pain reliever should only be used when chronic pain control is necessary and should not be used to treat acute pain. Your doctor may prescribe additional pain relievers that act more quickly for treatment of acute or “breakthrough” pain.

Your doctor may have suggested this medication for conditions other than the ones listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking this medication, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor.
