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 ...

worst drug to withdrawal from
1 Reply RSS
I'm very nervous, i am currently taking 8mg of hydromorphone and 30 mg of oxycontin a day and might have to have a surgery. I suffer from chronic pain from hideous chronic neuro lyme disease. I started taking hydromorphone because it actually helps with terrible undeniable chronic pain. If i am told i need surgery i will have to tell them because i would not be able to come home for 3 days. I am prescribed the oxycontin but not the dilaudid, and i heard the withdrawals would be hell on earth. Any experience from anyone? ## Hello, Holly! How are you? Certain medications can also interfere with anesthesia, so not tell them could put you at great risk, or possibly cause life threatening complications. Thus, it is best to be honest and tell them everything you have been taking. The FDA ...

peacful feeling w/ Hydromorphone
1 Reply RSS
Along with relieving pain after I take it I have always gotten a very calming and "normal, natural" feeling. I don't mean a doped up "jacked up" feeling like Amphetamines or anything like that. I'm not as depressed feeling. Since I'm also being treated with Agoraphobic Depression I am yearning to feeling normal/natural again like I feel with this med. My question is, is there an ingredient in it (Hydromorphone) that is also in an over the counter supplement that will help w/ feeling normal and happy? Like St. Johns Wort I've heard so much about?..seeing this written out sounds like I could just as well wish upon a star.. in other words, "hell no there isn't"... ## Hello, Lalee! How are you? You're right, but I'll be more polite in my w...

Hydromorphone 2mg prescribed
6 Replies RSS
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...

Hydromorphone came up as oxycontin ua
2 Replies RSS
My UA at the my pain management Doctor's office came up positive for Oxycontin, but I am prescribed Hydromorphone 4mg x 3 & Hydrocodone 10/325mg x 4 - why is that? ## Hello, Marie! How are you? Unless they use an actual certified one, which most don't due to the expense, then false alarms are actually very common. Most narcotics are distantly related and produce very similar metabolites in the body. They should be able to send your sample out for more precise lab work that would eliminate that issue. 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? ## Hi Marie, I hope that this is not cau...

yellow round 44-194
2 Replies RSS
A round yellow pill that has 44-194 is daludid 4 mg it contains 4 mg of hydromorphone and is a product of endo pharm ## I'm sorry, but this is actually an over the counter product that does not contain any narcotics, of any type, whatsoever. This tablet contains 4mgs of Chlorpheniramine, which is an antihistamine that's used to treat allergies. Side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It is NOT DILAUDID. It is an over the counter allergy pill sold under the name of Clortabs. There is no narcotic in it. God bless you Ms.

is hydromorphone the same as iv dilaudid
2 Replies RSS
Is hydromorphone the same as dilaudid I've. ## @Biglou, Hydromorphone is the generic name for Dilaudid (brand name), so yes, they are the same drug in that sense. However not all dosage forms are IV-based. For example, I've seen 4mg Dilaudid tablets in person and have also heard of patients taking 2 to 8mg tablets throughout this forum. One other thing to note is that they do make a brand called "Dilaudid-HP" (Hydromorphone Hydrochloride Inj.) which is marketed for intravenous use. Although, I have yet to find out if there is a generic form of the IV as well. Hope this helps answer your question! ## Regarding the post of Hydromorphine IV and dilaudulid: they are the same medication. I was on Dilaudid, (generic name) Exalgo ER 8 mg oral for chronic pain. While in hospital...
