We have added new functionality for frequently tapered medications such as opioids, benzodiazepines, and clonidine. This will automatically calculate the doses based on a % or specific amount of increase or decrease. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Find the medication and when ordering, use the green column graph icon above the medication dosing information
  2. Enter the decrease amount or %, keeping in mind that % decreases may result in non-rounded volumes
  3. The result creates individual amount orders
  4. To change a taper, simply cancel/reorder one of the individual orders and cancel all others.
