I started the medication and am trying to find a effective level of dosage for around the clock relief.

Safe is a relative term when it comes to morphine. If you have not taken opioids previously, 80 mg of morphine (with 3.2 mg of naltrexone) twice daily would likely be an overdose. However, this same dose would be safe if you worked up to it over time and your body built up a tolerance.
Work with your doctor, start low using breakthrough medications (immediate-release opioids), and let you doctor know if you need to increase the dose to achieve pain control.
