Dilaudid Overview

Hydromorphone, also known as dihydromorphinone, and sold under the brand name Dilaudid among others, is a centrally acting pain medication of the opioid class. It is a derivative of morphine; to be specific, it is a hydrogenated ketone thereof. Comparatively, hydromorphone is to morphine as hydrocodone is to codeine—that is, a semi-synthetic drug. In medical terms, it is an opioid analgesic and, in legal terms, a narcotic. Hydromorphone is commonly used in the hospital setting, mostly i...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg?
526 Replies RSS
I have been on Dilaudid for over 2 years now and I can't seem to get off of it. I'm under a doctor's care, but anyone who is on it knows it's very addicting! I think like everybody else, it's no good if you take it orally. It's only effective other ways. I always run out of Dilaudid before my prescription is ready to refill and recently I filled a script for oxycontin 40 mg to see if they could replace my 4 mg Dilaudid. However, I took 1/2 of a 40 mg. and felt nothing. An hour later I took my 4 mg Dilaudid and it seems to have worked. But they are very short lived, that's why for chronic pain they like to give these stupid time release pain pills. How many mg.'s does equal the same amount of dilaudid? I also would like to know if anyone has ever tapered o...

How To Order Dilaudid Over Internet
2 Replies RSS
want to oder dilaudid from known sites uderground. ## If your intent is to order medications that require a prescription, then there is no guaranteed safe and legal way to do so outside of the standard "doctor-visit" procedures. There are many more hazards involved when you order online from a non-legitimate site; such as not receiving what you ordered and just being scammed out of your money, or getting something that isn't even the medication you ordered (and you end up accidentally taking it). Not too long ago there were quite a few posts on this site from a number of people that had each ordered different medications from the same company, but they had all received the same exact pills from them, so there is no possible way they were actually getting what they should hav...

rhodes 8 mg dilaudid

Why does Rhodes make different generic 8mg Dilaudid. I have had it round and now I have it with two P's on one side and an eight on the other side. And it's in a peculiar shape. I know they were bought out by Purdue. But why do you need different generic pills for the same exact strength??? ## Hello, Amber! How are you? Sometimes the company listed on your pharmacy bottle aren't the actual manufacturers, they are just licensed distributors. Thus, it is always best to go by the imprints, rather than the pharmacy label. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache. What were the markings on the round ones?

dilaudid for cancer pain

Our daughter has advanced stage IV double lung cancer which has metastasized all throughout her body. She is now on IV dilaudid for her severe pain. Works very well. What, as your opinion, is her outlook? Would like to know as much as we can about this medication (including its side effects). Thank you. ## Dilaudid is a potent opiate narcotic that is used to treat severe pain. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Not being a doctor, I really can't speak as to her outlook, cancer is much more complicated to treat and eradicate, once it has metastasized. Regarding the medication, I can tell you that studies have shown that providing such a patient with proper doses to...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain meds near joplin mo without a $500 initial fee
28 Replies RSS
Joplin or near joplin mo pain dr that will prescribe dilaudid and norco that dosent cost $ 500 for the first visit ## I'm sorry, but really that's about the average for most specialists. Do you have insurance to cover it? Learn more Norco details here. Can anyone else suggest someone that may be a bit cheaper? The only other suggestion I can make, if you don't have insurance, is to contact your local hospitals and see if they have a social work department. The people there often have a list of resources to help people that don't have insurance, so they can get the medical care they need. They may even know of a clinic that can help that has a sliding fee scale. ## Who is the doctor in Joplin? I live in Joplin, MO and have been to countless pain management specialists tha...

I've been on dilaudid 4mgs for 9 years for damaged pancreas and now I have hip problems that are very painful, and the pain medication is not controlling the pain.. It's maddening....hopeless. ## Hello, Joy! How are you? I am sorry that you're in so much pain. It goes as high as 32mgs, so there are higher doses you can try. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. What other medications have you tried? ## Since the year 2000 I was prescribed 180 60mg at a time of morphine extended release and morphine 15mg extended release three times a day each +184 5mg oxycodone instant release tablets per day.

compound pharmacy in florida with dilaudid

can not get my didludid filled after walgreens did it last month and refused this month due to good faith dispensing?? ## Hello, Fred! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. What other pharmacies have you tried? You need to actually physically go to them, with the prescription in hand, in order to find out if they carry it. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## In response to above regarding Dilaudid prescription, the poster who first answered you said you must physically take it to them-though I didn't see anything in your post about you taking it or not taking it to them in person! I did...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication richmond va
69 Replies RSS
I am looking for a compassionate doctor in the Richmond VA area who will prescribe pain medication. ## HI, BlueBell! How are you? The current situation isn't that doctors aren't compassionate, it's that there are strict regulations in place regarding what they can and cannot prescribe, how much they can prescribe, how long they can prescribe it and why they can prescribe it. It's really tied their hands in many cases. If you have a condition that requires strong pain medications for long-term treatment of chronic pain, then your best bet is most likely going to be to see a pain management specialist. Do you have a general practitioner that you see regularly who may be able to refer you to someone? Does anyone else know of a good doctor in that area? ## I do know a pain d...
