Why would opiates suddenly stop working? Even with an increased dosage they have no affect on me?

After a while opiates can stop working mostly because your body becomes immune to them thats why some people start taking larger doses if there not working tell your doc and he or she can give you something stronger.hope this helps

hi toddhp,the reason drugs stop working on you is your brain reseptors can only absorb a certain amount of opiaid drugs.the same amount of drugs you used to take are now being processed in other organs other than your c n s me
via your brain. c n s central nervous system . it is called a blocking dose.
