Dilaudid Overview

Hydromorphone, a more common synonym for dihydromorphinone (not to be confused with dihydromorphine, which is a different derivative of the morphine family), commonly a hydrochloride (brand names Palladone, Dilaudid, and numerous others) is a very potent centrally acting analgesic drug of the opioid class.

please help: need answers to get off dilaudid
66 Replies RSS
I have been taking 3 to 4 8mg (24-32mgs) Dilaudid pills at 1 time usually around 3:00pm everyday for about 2 1/2 years now for back and nerve damage and would like to know the best way, medication, and dosage to get off this drug, also how long and how bad I will feel detoxing. The only time I have energy and feel good is the 2 or 3 hours after taking the drugs. Every muscle and bone in my body aches like I have a severe case of arthritis , i'm sleepy-but can't sleep an entire night, get a runny nose, yawn constantly and tired. I just want to feel normal again. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. 50 ## Wow, I am very sorry to hear about your problem. The safest way to get off the medication would be under medical supervision. Have you spoken to your doctor about thi...

There are actually several issues that have arisen this year, which have caused the problems on the east coast. One of them is due to the fact that pharmacies weren't abiding by the guidelines restricting how much of any controlled substance they can order in and keep in stock each month. The DEA has cracked down to make t...

That's awful! I am so sorry! There are actually 2 reasons for these issues.

Instead of contacting doctors and adjusting the prescriptions to the proper amounts, they just filled them anyway. As ...

Dilaudid Withdrawal Pregnancy
47 Replies RSS
I am 19 weeks pregnant. I have been taking 2mg Dilaudid every four hours daily, which would be a total of 12mg in a 24hr period. I have been taking it since 13 weeks pregnant, so a little over 6 weeks. I have been taking it every single day for chronic kidney pain. My doctor decided to transfer my care to a pain management clinic, and my appointment is not until Tuesday, it is currently Saturday. My OB refuses to write me a script to get to through until my appointment, and even though I have been taking them only as directed, they want be to come in and be converted to Methadone. NOT HAPPENING. I will suffer through all the pain in the world before having a child born to Methadone. My OB has refused to wean me down on the medication, so I am currently off it cold turkey. My last dose w...

Dilaudid doesn't work for pain
32 Replies RSS
I am allergic to Vicodin and Percocet so for my last 2 surgical procedures have been prescribed 4mg oral Dilaudid. I understand that it is a very powerful pain reliever but I get minimal relief from it so is it possible that my pain receptors are not responsive to this type of medication? The only other pain med that I take is Lodine (NSAID) for arthritis. It seems that I get more pain relieve from 2 Tylenol but am still in alot of pain with that. Both times after surgery I have stopped taking the Dilaudid after 3 days because I'm still in pain and on top of that constipated. Has anyone had this same minimal response and any suggestions on other pain meds I could use if needed? ## Odd. I too had little relief from Dilaudid. I was in a motorcycle accident, and they gave me that after...

White pill with DD on one side and a 8 On the other there is a line between the two D's and the 8 is split and looks sort of like a three and another three backwards. ## It's 8mg Dilaudid... (It's an opiate...morphine) and a good one at that!
