# Opioid Dose Calculator

Use this online Opioid dosage calculator to calculate the daily Morphine Equivalent Dose (MED) based on the Opioid taken by the patient per day. Opioids are a type of narcotic pain medication. Opioid intake reduces pain but improper dosage results in serious side effects. Higher dosages of opioids result in higher risk of death. The below Opioid Dose Calculator is used to calculate the daily Morphine Equivalent Dosage which helps to recover the patients from addiction.

#### Formula:

d = ( c * 0.15 ) + ( f * 2.4 ) + ( h ) + ( p * 4 ) + ( m * 4 ) + ( e ) + ( o * 1.5 ) + ( x * 3 ) + ( t * 0.367 ) + ( l * 0.2 )
**Where,**
d = Total Daily Morphine Equivalent Dose
c = Codeine
f = Fentanyl transdermal
h = Hydrocodone
p = Hydromorphone
m = Methadone
e = Morphine
o = Oxycodone
x = Oxymorphone
t = Tapentadol
l = Tramadol
The Opioid Dosing Guideline for Chronic non-cancer Pain was originally published in March 2007. This online opioid dose calculator is used to find the total morphine equivalent dose.

#### Example

**Calculate Morphine Equivalent Dose, if codeine dosage is 12 mg / day, tapentadol is 18 mg / day and morphine is 34 mg /day.**

MED = (c * 0.15 + t * 0.367 + e)

= 12 * 0.15 + 18 * 0.367 + 34

MED = 42.406 mg / day

Therefore MED is 42.406 mg / day
