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 ...

Dilaudid and Subutex
62 Replies RSS
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...

small round peachy orange h 2 pill

I keep getting mixed results on this one. If anyone knows for sure it's supposed to be for water retention, but I'm finding it may also be a strong pain reliever? ## Those are known to be Hydromorphine 40 mg. A very strong pain reliever, be very careful with the usage. ## No, a round orange tablet with an H on one side of a score line and a 2 on the other side of the score, which is blank on the back is manufactured by Heritage Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 25mgs of Hydrochlorothiazide. This is a water people, otherwise known to the FDA, as a diuretic. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. There is no Hydromorphone available with an H 2 marking on it. Is there anything else I can help with?

dilodid mg8 what does it look like
3 Replies RSS
I'm trying to find out what a dilodid 8mg looks like. I found pill in son's drawer its white has an 8 on it and a line and a m on other side. It's not round but sort of triangle shaped sort of? ## what does a 2mg dilodid look mlike ## Yes, the tablet with the M 8 marking is an 8mg Hydromorphone tablet, the active ingredient in Dilaudid, it is a potent narcotic analgesic. This medication has the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. You can learn more Dilaudid details here. However, as to Darryl's question, since this medication is available as both a name brand and a generic, there's no way for me to list all possible descriptions and markings. Thus, if you have a tablet you...

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...
