Substitol (Morphine Sulfate) is semi-synthetic, highly potent and long acting opioid analgesic. Substitol is a full opioid agonist with the high liability for abuse similar to that of morphine legally or illegally.
Substitol is a controlled-release oral medicine with two medical indications:
- for the management of severe chronic pain when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time;
- in opioid replacement therapy to treat Heroin addiction.
