  • Codeine
  • Morphine
  • Oxycodone
  • Demerol
  • Percocet
  • Vicodin
  • Oxycontin
  • Heroin
  • Methadone

 

Morphine Opiates drug testing

 

What does it look like and how is it taken?

Opiates come in an array of forms including powder, pill and liquid. Opiates can be ingested, smoked, injected, or inhaled depending on the drug. They vary in color. Opiates such as Oxycontin come in pills that vary in color; whereas, Vicodin is always white. Heroin can be a white powder, white crystals or sometimes can even be brown. Morphine comes in various color pills and in liquid form.

Illegal or Legal?

Some opiates such as Oxycontin, Vicodin, Demerol and Percocet are legal to possess with a prescription from a doctor. Opiates such as Morphine are legal when administered by a medical professional. Opiates such as heroin are always illegal. Any opiate taken without a prescription from a doctor is illegal.

Why are Opiates taken?

Most opiates are taken to relieve pain. Many opiates are prescribed by doctors, but they can still be abused by the prescribed patient and others that may steal the drug from the patient. Opiates create a sense of well-being and react with the brain to create feelings of euphoria. Because of the euphoric “high” opiates produce, they are often abused.

Dangers and side effects of Opiates

Opiates are generally very addictive. Prolonged usage inhibits the brain from producing endorphins, which is the body’s natural painkiller. Without endorphins the body is likely to feel more pain and more opiates are needed to produce the same relief. Because users become tolerant to the drug and need higher dosages to produce the same “high,” opiate abusers are at a high risk for overdoses. High doses of opiates can lead to cardiac arrest and/or respiratory arrest which can lead to death.

Side effects of opiate use include: slurred or slowed speech, slowed breathing and heart rate, constricted pupils, watery eyes, drowsiness, weight loss, diarrhea, headaches, nausea, vomiting and itchy skin. Psychological side effects include: loss of concentration, confusion, anxiety, depression, and extreme mood swings.
