Morphine 15 mg


  • Morphine 15 mg is an analgesic (pain-reliever) that may be used to treat moderate-to-severe pain that is unresponsive to other, less potent, pain-relieving medicines.
  • Morphine works by binding mainly to mu-opioid (MOP) receptors in the brain and the periphery, including the stomach. Activation of MOP receptors in the midbrain is thought to be a major mechanism of opioid-induced analgesia. When morphine binds to MOP receptors it indirectly stimulates descending inhibitory pathways and 5-hydroxytryptamine and enkephalin-containing neurons that ultimately results in a reduction in nerve transmission from the periphery to the brain. Morphine has very strong pain-relieving effects.
