What is Morphine Equivalent Dose (MED)?

The MED Calculator is designed to assist in the calculation of a patient's opioid intake. Fill in the mg per day for whichever opioids your patient is taking to automatically calculate the total morphine equivalents per day. Providers treating chronic, non-terminal pain patients who have received opioids equal to or greater than 80 mg MED for longer than three continuous months should consult Ohio’s opioid prescribing guidelines.
