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 ...

weaning off dilaudid pain pump
19 Replies RSS
how long does it take to be weaned off a medtronic pain pump with the med. dilaudid the pain management wants my daughter to come off it in one month is that to fast and will there be alot of side effects and withdrawal please help i'm really scared for her and they are suppose to start reducing tomorrow ## Dialudid is a potent narcotic containing the active ingredient Hydromorphone. It really depends on how high of a dosage she has been on and for how long. It should be done on a very slow taper, slowly decreasing her dosage every 5 to 7 days, until she eventually isn't using any. She will, more than likely, still experience some withdrawal effects when she finally does stop altogether, however, they should not be severe nor dangerous. Just somewhat miserable. Did they say why ...

Fake dilaudid
Post a Reply
Tell everyone who is using anything that they cannot prove came from a pharmacy. A dear friend of mine got very sick and almost died when he received an 8mg dilaudid looking tablet. It was fake. If you compare it to the real thing there are very subtle differences. The white tablet w/ LCI 1355 has slightly different letters and number 1 than the real one.The letters should look just like they do here. Not Roman style or more fancy lettering. Be careful people. Try to stop taking pain killers if you can.To many scammers are out there. It is your life people.

dilaudid pain pump
34 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...

how long does dilaudid 8mg work for
1 Reply RSS
I am having withdrawals from my regular medication which is oxycodone. I'm recently prescribed dilaudid 8mg for pain - how long will this medication work for, and will it take away the wd symptoms? ## It should help, each 8mg Dilaudid is equivalent to 21.33mgs of Oxycodone. They are usually taken every 4 to 6 hours. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
441 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?...

My neurologist wants me to get off as many as possible. So, wonderful me stopped taking some of my medicine. I stopped the temazepam with no problems, I did not have a refill on my klonopin so went a week off of that. Just a little nausea. I separated my baclofen out from 3 a day to 2 a day. No problem. Then I took 1/2 of a dilaudid and went into a spiral like no other. I was sick when I took 1/2, sick when I didn't. Had chest pains, eyes twitched, air hurt the hair on my arms, throwing up, wrenching and praying for death. Friday night I Called my dr... He told me to go to the ER. ER rul...

Is Filling A Dilaudid Prescription As Hard Roxicodone
16 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...

Weaning off Dilaudid
50 Replies RSS
I have been taking 8 mgs. of Dilaudid 4 times a day for the last 6 months for a chronic illness. 3 months ago I had surgery to give some relief to my illness, and I have since found some stabilization to my symptoms. As such, my doctors want to wean me off of the Dilaudid. I am very nervous about the idea because I have noticed in the mornings (after not having the Dilaudid for 12 hours), I feel a bit anxious and I have joint and muscle aches and pains. Therefore, the first thing I do is take my Dilaudid. Currently to wean me off my doctor is suggesting that I taper back one pill a day (around lunchtime) each week so that I go from taking 8 4mg. tablets a day to taking one 4 mg. tablet a day. This process should take about one month to complete, and it truly frightens me. Do you have an...
