Will morphine sulphates be beneficial in the treatment of moderate to severe peripheral neuropathy pain

Morphine is likely to help with this type of pain, although the effects are, as you know, only temporary, and often require an escalating dose of morphine to achieve the same level of pain relief.

Other medications, considered "neuropathic" pain medications, such as gabapentin, lyrica, cymbalta, amitryptiline, have been used to help dull this type of pain as well.

And having your neurologist try to find the source of the pain -- and treat this if possible -- would be the best treatment in terms of a longer type solution to this type of pain.
