Hydromorphone Overview

Hydromorphone, a more common synonym for dihydromorphinone (not to be confused by 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 it can be said that hydromorphone is to morphine as hydrocodone is to codeine and, therefore, a semi-synthet...

I've found a little yellow round pill with the number 4 on one side and the letters Pms on the other side what is it ## Hello, Jaye! How are you? This tablet contains 4mgs of 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

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?

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...

Hydromorphone 6, 12mg extened release.
My doctor told me to up my hydromorphone from 6 mg to 12 mg extended release. I was taking 6 mg extended every 12 hours with 4 mg enstant release every 4 hours. Now I'm taking 12mg extended release every 12 hours with 1mg enstant release every 4 hours. How is that upping my dose?? Wasn't the 6 mg extended release with the 4 mg enstant release every 4 hours more then I'm taking now ?? Please help. ## Hello, Steve! How are you? Yes, you are correct. Adding up the two 6mgs a day and the 6 4mg one comes out to 36mgs daily. But 12 mgs twice a day, plus 1mg 6 times a day is only 30mgs. 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. Have you asked your doctor ab...

Hydromorphone 12mg
My doctor changed my dose from 6 mg extended release to 12 mg extended release. I hope this will help. How much 12 mg will be released in my system at once?? I take 2 every 12 hours. ## Hello, Chris! How are you? I'm sorry, but I have no information on the exact release rate of the ones you're taking. How are they working for your pain? 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.

Hydromorph Contin =Hydromorphone
Is morphine stronger than hydromorph contin. I use to take 100 mg of morphine, I've since had 6 major back operations and now have titanium rods from my pelvis up to my occupant so I no longer am able to move my head at all for it's fused to my body. I'm taking 24mg of hydromorph contin. It doesn't work for me and I was wondering if just morphine is stronger for pain? ## Hello, Terry! How are you? No, the Hydromorphone is much stronger. You only need 1.5mgs of it for every 10mgs of Morphine. 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. Have you consulted your doctor? Are you on any other medications, or just this one?

How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you had. However, there is really no definitive answer for this question, much of it depends on your body. Have you been taking anything for the itching?
