  1. The answer is A, and Maryam has won it again.See details below:
    Diamorphine is an opioid drug, which in many countries is classified as a
    ‘controlled drug’, indicating that special prescription and dispensing require￾ments are necessary. Diamorphine is more lipid soluble than morphine and
    this allows for effective doses to be injected in smaller volumes. Diamorphine
    may be administered by mouth, subcutaneously, intramuscularly or by intravenous injection.
