Hi Pain Pals, LOL!

I recently read an article about new DEA regulations that will prohibit pain management MDs from prescribing more-than 180 mg/ day of morphine (or morphine equivalents of other opiates).

I read, in a different article, that 200 mg was the cap.

I believe that PRN meds are included in the daily cap.

Has anyone heard/ read of this?

What do you think?
