What does MME mean (as in 90 MME)?
The CDC guidelines now suggest that no more than 90mme a day be prescribed to chronic pain patients. MME = Morphine Milligram Equivalents
Explain how to calculate my pain medication into daily MME
|Fentanyl transdermal (in mcg/hour)||2.4|
You take 10mg of Oxycodone three times a day: 30 x 1.5 = 45 MME
PLUS you take 30mg of Morphine ER twice a day: 60 x 1 = 60 MME
For a daily total of 105 MME
