Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. Actually that isn't a particularly large dose of morphine sulfate. As someone with chronic pain takes pain medication it is normal to develop a tolerance to the medication so that more may be needed to achieve the same level of pain relief that one enjoyed previously. Please have a frank talk with your doctor and tell him or her that your MS dose is not controlling the pain.
