Hi and thanks for the query.
With opiates dependence and tolerance are two major concerns.
In your case, you have developed tolerance to the break through morphine which means that the pain has stopped responding to that particular drug in the dosage that has been prescribed for you.
The best course of action will be to visit your Pain management specialist and have him/her substitute the break through medication with something else. That will alleviate the symptoms as well as inhibit the tolerance after a while. A morphine drug holiday and substitution will reset the tolerance.
So, please visit your pain management specialist.
Let me know if you have any concerns or queries related to this.
