Use caution when prescribing opioids at any dosage and prescribe the lowest effective dose. Use extra precautions when increasing to ≥50 MME per day* such as:
- Monitor and assess pain and function more frequently.
- Discuss reducing dose or tapering and discontinuing opioids if benefits do not outweigh harms.
- Consider offering naloxone. Avoid or carefully justify increasing dosage to ≥90 MME/day. These dosage thresholds are based on overdose risk when opioids are prescribed for pain and should not guide dosing of medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder.
