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. It is a derivative of morphine; to be specific, a hydrogenated ketone thereof, and comparatively, hydromorphone is to morphine as hydrocodone is to codeine and, therefore, a semi-synthetic ...

I am a stage IV cancer patient and member of an invitational research and survey type website. Members primarily consist of other stage IV cancer patients, but in some cases, may be the caregiver of a stage IV patient. A little over a month ago, a caregiver launched a blog-like diary of sorts. He states his wife has end-stage, metastasized, breast cancer. His postings started with news his wife had to be hospitalized when she began the dying process and indicating shut-down. However, many of his statements do not sound clinically correct or even possible. For example, after she was admitted to the hospice section of the hospital, he stated she emerged from days of a coma-like state to experience what he called a rally. This rally consisted of engaging in conversation with himself and ho...

Is Filling A Dilaudid Prescription As Hard Roxicodone
11 Replies RSS
I have been on roxicodone for a couple years. I had soo much trouble filling them that I stopped and realized that I couldn't lead a normal life from my pain. Soo I am back in pain management. Filling roxicodone in FL has become impossible. I and my six are trying dilaudid as a replacement, however, I am now having trouble finding them as well. Anyone else suffering the same issue? Stuck in FL!! ## I"m sorry about what you are going through. Unfortunately, this seems to be an ongoing problem all over Florida and while several theories have been postulated, there has been no official word as to why this is happening. Have you had any luck getting your prescription filled, yet? ## Yes, I did fill it. Unfortunately, it is not the same as the Roxi I have to take more and that don...

dilaudid and fentanyl what is stronger
10 Replies RSS
my fiancée is on 25 mg of fentanyl she was on 12 mg of exalgo. what is the difference and what is stronger? the pain management company she is dealing is very hard to talk too and get ahold of. she has a lot of breakthrough pain. can anyone help me with these questions please and thank you. ## Hello, Alexander! How is your fiancé doing? The Fentanyl is actually the strongest narcotic available, but she may need a stronger dose of 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. Has she consulted her doctor? ## She has called a couple of times. She has been on them for about 7 days now. How high will they put her just to get to the break though pain? She i...

Dilaudid doesn't work for pain

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...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
376 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 bought some oxycontin 40 mg. to see if they could replace my 4 mg. Dilaudid. However, I did 1/2 of a 40 mg. and I felt nothing. An hour later I did my 4 mg. Dilaudid and really felt it. But they are very short lived, that's why for cronic 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 off of Dilaudid?...

67 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...
