Mama question...12 mg Morphine for 4 yotj

  1. 0 Hi all!
    I have a quick question. I work ICU- adults.
    I took my daughter to the dentist today and she has cavities.
    They said she should be sedated.
    12 mg Morphine, oral; and 8 mg Atarax oral.
    She is 4 and 38#.

    Seems like an awful lot- especially outside of a medical setting.

    Can someone tell me the normal? Is there a normal?

    I'm sorry, but we can't answer this question. Please direct your concerns to the dentist or your child's pediatrician or pharmacist.

    Thanks!

    I had an interview with a dentist office that I declined. They had RNs in the office to handle sedation and recovery. I've never even given 12 of morphine to an adult though :/ I think that's a lot for a kid!!

    Oh sorry.
    Didn't realize personal experience was medical advice.
