Though morphine abuse has waned in popularity in recent years, due in large part to other types of prescription opioids like oxycodone and hydromorphone, the drug still has a powerful and destructive hold on many Americans. Morphine is the primary chemical component in opium. It is often used in an inpatient hospital setting to alleviate severe traumatic and post-surgical pain. Some of the drugs that contain morphine include, but are not limited to MS Contin, Morphine Sulfate ER, Roxanol, Morphine Sulfate IR and Embeda.
