I don't want the usual adult dosage. I want the therapeutic range such as 20-60 ng/mL for blood test results.
Opioids do not have a therapeutic range, per say, that will show up in blood work like other drugs. They are different for everyone and different for different kinds of pain. They are different from person to person, but even in one individual, it can be different depending on say, whether you are treating someone after surgery or say, that same person after a burn or other traumatic injury-the doses in the same person would be different for different pain generators. They must be customized to the patient. Just as pain is subjective, so is pain relief. There is no ceiling on opioids. The dose can go as high as it needs to-it is limited only by tolerance and side effects.
