Levy’s Rule Example 2
Mr. Tom Hack, a terminally ill, colon cancer patient
Mr. Tom Hack, a terminally ill colon cancer patient has pain that is well controlled on Morphine Sustained Action, 90mg every 8 hours. Mr. Hack is now unable to swallow and so the Morphine needs to be converted into a transdermal fentanyl patch. Calculate the hourly dose of the fentanyl patch.
