Our institution currently makes a morphine PF 0.5 mg/ml from the parenteral product. However, I am used to using the 0.4 mg/ml concentration and would like to change to this (as well as being aligned with ASHP).
I realize there is an oral recipe diluting the commercially available Morphine 2 mg/ml oral solution. However, this product has sodium benzoate and sorbitol which is not recommended for use in pediatric and neonatal patients (if possible). Hence, why I am looking for a recipe for using the parenteral product.
Would anyone be able to share a recipe for Morphine 0.4 mg/ml using a parenteral product? Reference and BUD
