Is alprazolam the stronger than morphine?
Not medical advice: Alprazolam & morphine are different drugs that work in different ways to treat different conditions. Morphine is an opioid narcotic (pain reliever) that weakens the brain’s recognition of pain. Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine that alleviates nervous tension by acting on chemical imbalances in the brain. Studies have shown alprazolam to dull nausea associated with morphine use, but neither drug affects the function of the other. Consult an MD with any concerns.
