On your computer, pick a search engine, like google, yahoo or whatever.  If u are not sure on the address bar, put www.google.com and then in that space type ...narcotic calculator.  It will show lots of web sites that will help u.  click on the first and see if it is good, hopefully it will be  a good one and u will put in your amount and what u want to change it to  and give u the answer.  However if u can't easily figure out the first one u go to hit the back button until u get to the list of sites again and try the next one.  a good one will be free and say like  currently taking _____________ and at ______mg and want to change to ____________________.  and then it figures it for you.  

I can do better if u need any more help.  Ill write down what u are trying to figure and go look to if I have a few and the kids dont wake up yet.  otherwise, i really hope this makes more sense - sorry the first one I was talking 90 to nothing.  let me know''

heya m8y.it does sound excessive.i just read on one of those equianalgia chart sites how they worked out the proper transfer dose.this patient was takin 80mgs OC 3xdailly plus 20mgs hydromorphone 5x daily.using their formula they concluded that 15mgs of mdone 3x dailly will suffice.
