Hydromorphone 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 ...

where to fill hydromorphone 2mg
Where can I fill a prescription hydromorphone 2mg in the Dallas area? #120 ## Hello, Dot! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of pharmacies according to what medications they carry that I can refer to for you. The only way to find out is by actually going to the pharmacies, with the prescription in hand. 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 it been out of stock?

(hydromorphone and tylenol)
Which is stronger 2mg of Hydromorphone Or 500mg of tylenol? ## Hello, Karen! How are you? The Hydromorphone is a potent narcotic that is only available via prescription, so it is the stronger of the two. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

Dilaudid and Subutex
I had a knee surgery yesterday. I have been using subutex to help me taper narcotics. I stopped the subutex 2 weeks before surgery. My doctor prescribed both percocet and oxycontin. I am getting no pain relief. The iv Dilaudid worked in the hospital. Has anyone used Dilaudid by pill at home ## I have suffered with chronic neck and back pain for years due to disk and nerve problems. My Dr. switched me from oxycontin to diulaudid (4-8 mg) and it worked for the first 9 mos. or so, then I got no relief. Many people get sick on it or very itchy. I am now on a higher dosage of Percoset. ## Are you familiar with subutex? ## No, I'm not. ## It is a new drug that has some pain killing ability. It is a controlled substance. When you take it other narcotics don't work. So it is good for so...

Can not fill hydromorphone rx in pt charlotte
Hello. I just moved here from NYC and I have serious lower back issues. I was in a car accident in 2000 and have 2 herniated disks in my back and have been on hydromorphone for years. I saw a Doctor here in my new town and he gave me the rx, then came the nightmare. I drove to over 50 pharmacies to only be told "we're out of that rx and even had someone from walgreens pick up a piece of paper and start reading me a script as to why he cant fill it. I have aetna insurance and sent the rx in for home delivery and they said they would have no problem filling the script, I sent it in and again was told they wouldn't fill it. I have been on this medication for years and I desperately need help. I see on these forums that other people are having the same problem. I don't want ...

Hydromorphone 2mg prescribed
I was prescribed Dilaudid 2mg every 6 hours as needed for pain after being in the hospital for 5 days getting it through an IV every 2 hours as needed.... The pills I was prescribed were 4mg and I cut them in half.... Am I at serious risk if I take a whole pill for severe pain??? I am embarassed to ask my doctor in fear that he will think I am an addict trying to get a cheap high. This is not the case however. I actually am not a fan of taking pills at all, not even tylenol. The pain is almost unbearable. What do I do??? ## 4mgs is not a dangerous dose, though it is really strong and if you aren't used to taking medications, it will probably hit you very hard and you'll experience more of the side effects. Since it is a potent narcotic, they can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizz...

Outrage
My fiancé has been receiving hydromorphone 8mg tablets for fibromyalgia and several herniated discs for over 4 years now. For most people in the same situation as my fiance and those who are prescribed similar medication for chronic pain know about the problems that are continuing to occur when filling theses particular medications. We are well aware of the epidemic and abuse of this medication and medications like it however his diagnosis' is legit as well as his prescriptions and we constantly have a difficult time filling his prescriptions. He works for bright house and does extremely hard work outside as a lineman and needs this medication to function at work and through daily activities. I hate to say but young people who have taken advantage of these pills and used them f...

what does the pms in pms hydromorphone stand for and its dangers
I have read various different precautions about using this drug intravenously. Some say that without using a micron filter you run the risk of losing your arm due to a microcrystalline cellulose compound found in the drug, I guess as a tamper prof method. That seems cruel knowing addicts will abuse anything if the possibility it will make them high. they also say this compound is not water soluble so does that mean once water is added that compound would not enter the needle and stay at the bottom? Others say its fine. My other main question is what does the pms in pms-hydromorphone stand for and is it related to that cellulose compound?
