avoiding overdoses when patients switch opioid pain medications (oxycodone, morphine, hydromorphone, etc)

You'll see more emphasis on avoiding overdoses when patients switch opioid pain medications (oxycodone, morphine, hydromorphone, etc).

Switches are often needed for formulary reasons...to change the route of administration...or if an opioid isn't tolerated or working well.

For years, prescribers and pharmacists have relied on "opioid dosing charts" to switch patients from one opioid to another.
