... in response to Morphine Pharmacokinetics
  1. Tanver Doğanay Tanver Doğanay Turkey says:

    Dear Jeffrey Hearn,
    Here it is morphine can be detected for a long time and other sites say that it only is detectable in urine for 2 to 3,days what's the real answer?
    Morphine is detectable in urine for 2 to 3 days. Because, biological half life of morphine is about 2 hours and it is detectable in blood for 2, 3 days and it transfers to kidneys and after excretion, in urine it is detectable for 2, 3 days.
    On the other side,
    The drug can be transferred to fat tissue from blood stream and diffused throughout the fat tissue and stored there, without transfering to blood stream, so it remains detectable in fat tissue for a long time after use and even after a person has died.
