Hi folks... I was just given Morphine sulfate IR, 15 mg, up to 2 every 4 hours. It's not helping that much with the pain, but i don't want to give up. I have a feeling this is a much smaller dose of pain medication if I'm right looking at one conversion chart? It was confusing, but it looked like if I took 120mg a day of Oxycodone the dose of Morphine Sulfate would be at least 250mg a day? ANYONE?

Hey there, according to my dosing calculator/conversion chart if you were taking 120mg of Oxycodone daily then the equivalent to that in Morphine would be 180mg daily. I am using the dosing calculator developed by the Washington State Agency Medical Director's Group that is to be used in conjunction with the Interagency Guideline on Opioid Dosing for Chronic Non-cancer Pain. The website that I got this from, and I have had it for a while, is www.agengymeddirectors.wa.gov/guidelines.asp if you would like to use it yourself. It is an Excel program that already has all the equations done so all you have to do is plug in what the mgs are and it will tell you the Morphine Equivalent. Hope that this was helpful. Hope you start to feel better soon.
