What is Morphine Withdrawal? Signs of morphine withdrawal,\u00a0such as nausea, lets you know that the body wants another "fix" of the drug.

The drug comes as a tablet, capsule, injection, and suppository in immediate and extend-release forms. Morphine street names include "White Stuff" and "Morph." The drug works by binding the natural opioid receptors in the brain and changing how the body responds to pain. Illicit use such as crushing the tablet or using it for injection increases the risks of addiction and overdose. What Causes Morphine Addiction? Addiction can develop when the drug is not used as prescribed or is used frequently for a long time.
