Morphine: Morphine, a natural opiate, is available as tablets or syrup, or as an injection. It may be injected, swallowed or even smoked. It is commonly prescribed to manage pain, for example after surgery, for severe chronic pain or for palliative care. Morphine acts directly on the central nervous system to relieve pain.
