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 live in Daytona beach Florida and i deal with three types of cancer...i get 8 mg dilauidid and 4 mg as well for the break threw pain. And yet i still have this terrible problem when i have to fill ...still i haven't filled almost 8 days into getting my scripts and still hve not filled ...CAN ANYONE TELL ME ANYWHERE I MIGHT GO I LIVE IN VOULISA COUNTY AND I CAN GET MY FILL DONE IN ORLANDO AS WELL ANY IDEAS ## Wow! That's awful! I am so sorry! There are actually 2 reasons for these issues. The first is due to the fact that pharmacies in Florida were found to be filling prescriptions for over the maximum amounts that someone can take and be prescribed in a month. Instead of contacting doctors and adjusting the prescriptions to the proper amounts, they just filled them anyway. As ...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication richmond va
32 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...

4mg Dilaudid Vs 80 Mg Oxycontin Er
10 Replies RSS
Hello~I'm on oxy 80's and dilaudid 4mgs which are prescribed for back pain. The oxys alone don't help at all. I get dilaudids tomorrow, but will be out of oxys. Does anyone know if the dilaudid alone will help? Thanks ## How did it work? Did you get any pain relief? Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, which is very potent, but if you've been taking 80mgs of the Oxycodone, then you'd need 30mgs of it to be equivalent for analgesia. Learn more Dilaudid details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. ## Hey! I sort of figured out the conversion and was taking 30 mg. or more of Dilaudid a day. I continue to be in around the clock pain. I believe I need to take the Oxycontin and Dilaudid in conjunction with one another. Thanks for responding! ## 10 MGS...

What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg.?
355 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?...

early refill dilaudid
4 Replies RSS
Husband has late stage Parkinson's and has chronic pain issues . Takes dilaudid. Prescribed 6times daily. Sometimes he needs more. He is 78 years old and I just want him comfortable the time he has left. I m his wife. I m 55. CVS after years of our business won't.fill his script 7 days early. What are my options? Its not that I'm some young woman seeking out drugs. ## monitor his pill intake better. there is not a pharmacy around that will do refills in 7 days earliest is 3 day .. too many attempts to refill early you will get reported as either a supplier or seeker and most places turn you in to the local police and get you pulled off meds for seeking is usually the suspicion.. Sorry with meds because of these kids these days there is no upside.. ## Hello, Mary! How are you...

dilaudid pain pump
28 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 lethal dosage?
26 Replies RSS
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...

crohns disease 4mg dilaudid does not work HELP!
41 Replies RSS
Hi everybody I suffer from crohns disease and my levels of pain are off the charts sometimes, it gets real unbearable, I am taking 4mg dilaudid pills 3x a day because I can only afford to see a general doctor, at the moment I have no insurance and paying for prednisone and 6-mp is beyond expensive. My doc won't give me dillys more than 3x a day because he is scared I will get addicted but I take these pills and the pain gets even worse, what am I to do, he told me I'm at a deadend in pain management with him because that's the most he can prescribe, but when I tell him it makes the pain worse he looks at me like I'm crazy but its true it makes it worse.. Has anyone else had a problem with this? What else is there that maybe I can see if he can switch it to? I just want t...

does butran block dilaudid
1 Reply RSS
Can you take dilaudid when wearing a butran patch ## Hello, Chuck! How are you? Butrans does't contain the opiate blocker Naloxone, but other opiates may not have much effect, because Buprenorphine tends to cling much stronger than they do to your opiate receptors. Has your doctor prescribed the Dilaudid for you? The FDA classifies this medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation.
