i've done a little bit of reaseach and i'm finding that your demerol strengh might be off. please correct me if i'm wrong
btw, this is a really nice site
oh, i see where the conversion came from, you were using IV rather than oran Demerol.
It seems that you switch between oral and IV/IM for your morphine comparisons.
thanks, that has already been a big help!
what about methadone acute and chronic?
*None of this should be construed as medical advice. You should always speak with a licensed MD. or medical professional for professional medical advice. These opinions are my own and should not be taken as professional medical advice*
When is methadone used in an acute setting?
I'm assuming the "acute" part means "IV"
i am still havin problems convertin this (guess i shoulda payed more attention in math class)like how many mg's of codiene would i have to take to equal like 1-10 mg lortab.......
IV means intraveinously. acute is for short time period, chronic is for long term use since the half life builds rapidly, personally I know where it fits in the chart but its just not in it and sometimes it varies so much from person to person that they might just have not wanted to mess with it.
But Methadone is not to be a first line analgesic. We've all read about the kid with tooth pain, and the dentist gave him Methadone. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, I'm just saying that it's not a conventional form of acute medicine.
It's a wonder you got out of preschool if can't multiply 6x10=60mg of codiene. ok 4th grade but still.......
i didnt hear that one but I think it means when you first switch from a less potent narcotic and don't have methadone built up in your system, so when you first start on it you don't have days and days of half-lifes of the drug left in your system like you do once you start a daily regimon for a long period.
wow thanks, that BS in psychology is really payin off huh!
