Opioids work by attaching to opioid receptors in the brain, dulling pain, stimulating the reward system in the brain, and increasing the production of the neurotransmitter dopamine which gives the user a euphoric feeling.

The μOR bind enkephalins & beta-endorphin but has low affinity for dynorphins.The μOR exist presynaptically in the periaqueductal gray region, & in the superficial dorsal horn of the spinal cord (substantia gelatinosa of Rolando). μOR are also found in the intestinal tract & cause constipation. Activation of the μ receptor by morphine causes analgesia, sedation, slightly reduced blood pressure, itching, nausea, euphoria, decreased respiration, & miosis. Overdoses can cause circulatory…
