Types of Opiates

The word ’opioid’ is used to refer to all drugs that are chemically altered to mimic the same effects of pain relief that you get with opiates.  This class includes all of the drugs that act at opioid receptors and the same effects as opiates.  In the Premiere Medical labs, our fast and accurate testing screens for a number of opiates, including:
Codeine – Codeine is an opiate that is typically found in cough syrups.  Codeine is used as a pain medication.  It helps combat moderate pain and coughs.  This opiate is habit forming, no matter what the dose.
Morphine – Morphine is the most common opiate.  It has hundreds of different brand names.  Morphine is an analgesic drug which affects the central nervous system directly.
This opiate is typically used before and after surgery to ease a patient’s pain.  Morphine has a major risk for dependence and addiction.
Heroin and 6-acetylmorphine– These two opiates are opioid compounds which are similar to morphine.  However, they have a higher addiction capability.
HydrocodoneHydrocodone is a narcotic opiate analgesic which is obtained from codeine.  This opiate is used for pain related to injuries and dental pain.
HydromorphoneHydromorphone is used to relieve moderate to severe pain after injuries, surgeries and in cancer patients.
OxycodoneOxycodone relieves moderate to severe pain and is very addictive.
OxymorphoneOxymorphone is a narcotic.  It helps relieve moderate to severe pain.  It has a high risk for addiction and abuse.
Methadone – Methadone is a synthetic, narcotic analgesic that is used to treat heroin addiction as well as general pain.  It has a high risk for addiction.
While opiates are effective for pain relief, they are also very addictive and can produce a dependence in users.  No matter what type of opiate is in question, our opiate screening lab can test for it.
