Brief Answer:
It is safe to take it

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns,

But there is no need to worry as morphine sulfate does not contain sulfonamide which causes the sulfa drug allergy. So it is safe to take it.

I hope I answered your question.
Feel free to ask further
Regards
