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 ...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication richmond va
45 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...

is dylatin and dyladid the same medication OR is it used for the samething??? ## Hello, Rony! How are you? No, they are not the same, nor do they treat the same things. Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone. 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. But Dilantin contains the active ingredient Phenytoin, it is an anticonvulsant. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi my friend drank 12 squirts of Triclosan and has lost memory and brain cells through it will brain cells grow back and will she get her memory back too, she was in a very deep depression at the time ...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
425 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?...

Is Filling A Dilaudid Prescription As Hard Roxicodone
14 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...

What is the dosage equivilent from DILAUDID 4MG to OPANA IR 10mg and..
7 Replies RSS
I was just changed from the best pain meds I have found in 12 years of chronic pain (Exalgo ER 16mg + 4mg x 4 for breakthrough) because of a Medicare deal. Now I'm dealing with Opana ER 30mg twice daily and 10mg hydromorphone. So far the itching hasn't killed me, but I am reminded of why we switched in the first place. On the other hand, the strength seems more... I haven't been able to fill Opana ER (from Thurs to Tues is a long haul especially if I didn't have a spouse who hide meds when I need them to...) My math sucks. Not as much as withdrawal or OD though. What's the conversion? Happy Florist's Day! My first day here, glad I found you. ## Yes, you are on a slightly higher dosage, now. Thats why it feels like the strength is more. This is a narcotic analgesi...

What is the manufacturer of the Peach/Orange 2 mg tablet.
1 Reply RSS
I have the name of the Peach/Orange Pill with P on one side and 2 on the other. This is a Dilaudid (2 mg). I want to know the manufacturer. Also do you know what pharmacies use this specific generic pill. I am super sensitive to fillers in the meds and the one that Walgreen uses is white and makes my sinus act up. The only Dilaudid (2 mg) that doesnt mess me up is the Peach/Orange one. However, I was given those in the hospital. It is not the brand name dulaudid though because every one uses the generic a brand name one is not made any longer. ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? The name brand is still manufactured, it has not been discontinued. The ones you received in the hospital with the P2 marking are the name brand, they are manufactured by Purdue Pharma. The FDA classifies this medica...

dilaudid pain pump
32 Replies RSS
I would like to talk to anyone who has a pain pump with Dilaudid. My mother has a pain pump and I am worried she will be on it for the rest of her life. She has had the pump for many years and I feel it has affected her greatly. She had to have all her teeth pulled because they were rotting and she also has a problem with her tongue burning and red all the time. I am worried she will never get off the pain pump because she is addicted... she also falls asleep all the time even while you are talking to her. Thanks for any advice. Teresa. ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, this is a narcotic analgesic. There is a different between addiction and dependence. Dependence, which is more than likely what is happening to your mother, occurs when you are just using somethin...

Dilaudid / Fentanyl long-term withdrawal symptoms
4 Replies RSS
Hi, About three years ago during treatment for rectal cancer, I was given Dilaudid and Fentanyl as part of a pain management program. During a 10-day hospital stay, Dilaudid was injected sub-q every half-hour by means of a pump, and Fentanyl was injected by nurses when necessary (4-5 times a day). After discharge from the hospital, I kept the Dilaudid pump but, fortunately, Fentanyl was no longer required. I stayed on the pump until surgery 6 weeks later. Dilaudid was administered for another 10 days after surgery, but since the cause of the initial pain (a large tumour) had been removed, I no longer needed the medication. Withdrawal was limited to a couple of days of shivering (this was during a heat wave). My question is this: how long after taking medications as powerful as these doe...
