I will advice agains: Unless he is on palliative/hospice care i will advice against using morphine for cough. Only if the cough is extremely debilitating one may consider though.

See below: It may help his cough some. It will also likely help ease his breathing. I would check with his doctor about getting nebulized morphine. That works very well for shortness of breath from lung disease.
