Day,
Is your doctor switching you to morphine from subs? This is not a usual practice, but if he/she is trying some other type of pain relief then he/she should be able to help you.
You should wait at least 24 hours before taking morphine. And, you cannot switch back as quickly as you will be forced into precip wd's which can land you in the ER, or worse.

Are you under a subs doctors care?
