The MME calculator allows you to evaluate the morphine milligram equivalents (morphine equivalent dose) for the 11 most popular opioid drugs.
Opioids are a strong type of pain-killing drugs. They’re extremely addicting, so they should be used with caution, only in selected cases.
We often use opioids to treat patients with severe, chronic pain, connected, e.g., to an ongoing cancer process. Doctors may also use these drugs for the short-time treatment of acute pain linked to surgery or trauma. In all enumerated cases, the use of co-analgesia is essential.
