Another brand name for morphine sulfate, Kapanol is an opioid painkiller used to treat moderate to severe pain. When used according to a physician’s orders, it’s safe. Kapanol abuse, however, is dangerous.
When abused, all opioid drugs lose their effectiveness. A person engaged in Kapanol abuse ends up taking larger amounts of the drug to feel the same effects. This is known as tolerance, and it’s a sign of addiction. Also, large amounts of Kapanol make overdose far more likely.
Kapanol addiction is treatable, but difficult. Kapanol withdrawal should be best done in a medical detox environment for the best results.
