Hi ,in ideal world combining the different medications with the similar action is not advisable,although in clinical practice some times it needs to be done to get to the required level of analgesia.
If pain is not controlled with tramadol ,adding morphine at night is not a unacceptable practice though you are right in pointing out that it can increase the side effects.
