Replacement For Methadone
I am currently on 10 mg of methadone 16 times a day. I have to have something for my backpain but cannot deal with the side effects of methadone anymore. What would be a replacement drug that would be as effective? ## Hi Sara, Sorry to hear that your pain medication isn't working as well as you'd like it to. Some of these side effects can be pretty horrible, so I don't blame anyone for trying to find an alternative. A few suggestions I can give you for other prescription pain medications include: Demerol, Morphine, Vicodin (extended release), Percocet, Dilaudid, Opana, Oxycodone, and Fentanyl. Your doctor would have a better clue as to which one of these would best replace the drug you're currently on, but honestly, there's no way of telling ahead of time how you... ...

pain mchaedication change
My husband has been on morphine for years. Do you t hink dilaudid would help him more. ## Hello, Whozy! How are you and your husband doing? What dosage of Morphine does he take? If it's no longer working as well, the next step up for analgesia will really depend on where he's currently at with it. 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. ...

Oxycodone replacement drug?
Hi I suffered a complete L1/L2 Spinal Cord Injury a few years ago and due to the nerve damage I now suffer ongoing chronic pain in my lower groin and acute pain in my legs. I currently take 10mg Oxycodone five times a day with 10mg Methadone once a day for the pain and it has worked very well for me since the accident. I started on just 10mg Oxycodone four times a day with no Methadone and over nearly 5 years it has build up to what I'm now on. Me and my pain Dr always agreed to rotate my pain meds before any one does got too high, so we are now replacing the Oxycodone. I tried Dilaudid (Hydromorphone) for one day and it did very little for my pain apart from making me tired,so I have returned to the Oxycodone. My question to anyone who can help is what do you think is a good replac... ...

Hi i have been on the 50mcg patch for 2 months now and the provide much more relief than the mscontin 30mg did. I also get 180 10/325 percosets a month for breakthrough but am worried about my liver because of all th tylenol. I am going to talk to my doc about switching to a 10 or 15 roxi to give me some peace of mind im only 39 and have had 2 fusions done L4-L5 and L5-S1 if any one can give me any advice on something that might help better id appreciate it Thank You. ## The Roxicodone is an option, if your doctor agrees, because it is just the Oxycodone in a regular release formulation and doesn't have any Acetaminophen. Learn more Roxicodone details here. Another option you may want to ask them about would be Dilaudid, it contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, so it's a... ...

doctors perscribe morphine
Does anyone know a doctor in Houston tx that perscribe morphine please! ## Hello, Sandra! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will prescribe that I can refer to for you. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, getting a referral from them will likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. ## Hi Sandra..I see a dr in Houston, Morphine is hard to get. You may want to try dilaudid instead. I know of one but you must be on the up and up, have mri's, xrays, past medication records from pharmacy and records from previous pain dr. get back with me if you meet this criteria ...

weaning off of fentanyl patch
Hi, I started using a 12 mcg fentanyl patch about a month and a half ago for chronic pain. I never abused them and I always changed them every 72 hours like I was prescribed to. Well I decided that it was time to get off the patch and tried one day to take it off and a few hours later I started to experience "the flu times ten" I was told by my doctor that my body had formed a dependency to the drug and if I was ready to get off then he wants to wean me off. Well he prescribed me to dilaudid 4mg and he said as soon as I take the patch off to take half off my first dilaudid. The first day I take a half every 6 hours.. the next 2 days I take a half every 8 hours.. then the next 2 days after that its a half every 12 hours.. then the next 2 days after that its a half daily. I'm ... ...

pharmacist causing problems
OversyHad dilaudid 8miug recently Pres. 3 daily. Pharacist caused all kind of trouble. Stating he disagrees with the. Dr. Ultimately causing my insurance to demand a pre authorization and then refusing to allow me to pay cash until the Dr.had to call him personally. Did the pharm ## No, the pharmacist did nothing wrong. If he feels he has reason to be concerned about a controlled substance prescription, he can and should speak up about it. He is, after all, held responsible for what moves through his pharmacy. Pharmacists are taught to question any medication prescriptions that they feel may be suspicious. Whatever his reasoning was, whether he though it looked funny as written, or he was concerned about the dosage and amount, he obviously had a valid enough point to get the attention o... ...

Delaudid change from morphin
I have a pian pump inserted in my back and they are going to change from morphine to delaudid to keep from scar tissue building up on the nipple of the insert. How does this sound to you? ## Yes, it is completely normal for them to switch the medication used, periodically, to prevent issues with the pump and also to help prevent your building too much of a tolerance to any one medication, which could cause it to stop working for you. Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, it is a very potent narcotic and may cause side effects similar to the Morphine, such as nausea, dizziness, constipation and drowsiness.

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... ...

dilautid and morphine sulfate
8mg of dilotid or 30mg of morphine sulfate.Which is stronger? Kadian 100mg or Morphine Sulfate 100mg which is stronger? They discharged me because he was not comfortable with the amounts I needed Plse tell me ASAP ## Hello, Scooter! How are you? Kadian is just brand name for Morphine, so those are actually equal. As to the Morphine and Dilaudid, those are almost equivalent, too. It takes 7.5mgs of Dilaudid to equal each 30mgs of Morphine. However, I am not quite sure what it is that you're asking. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! 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. ...

Opana - Is it really Non-Addictive?
If Opana was designed to be non-addictive, how did my granddaughter become addicted to it; or did she? She is now in jail and says this is the drug she has been taking and paying $40.00 a pill for. ## Opana contains the active ingredient Oxymorphone and I'm not aware of anything stating it was designed to be non-addictive, the possibility of being habit forming and abused is actually prominently warned about it the drug information monographs about it. It is an opiate narcotic, therefore, it carries the same addictive risk as all the others do, such as Oxycodone and Morphine. More details: Are there any other questions? ## OPANA IS ADDICTIVE IT IS HYDROMORPHONE. IT HAS THE SAME THING IN IT AS DILAUDID IT'S NOT EXCATLY THE SAME BUT CLOSE THEY BOTH HAVE HYDROMORPHONE IN THEM CALL ... ...

What Is Comparible To Oxycodone
I am searching for a comparible drug to the Oxycodone? Due to national shortage I cannot get the Oxycodone. But I need something to replace it without Tylenol. ## I'm not sure how comparable these two drugs are to Oxycodone, as I have never taken them. But to help answer your question, Dilaudid (hydromorphone) as well as Demerol (meperidine) are also narcotic pain relievers used to treat moderate to severe pain. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Dilaudid Details and Demerol (meperidine) Details Maybe you could ask your doctor about either of these options as potential candidates for replacing Oxycodone. Hope this helps! ## There are other options, but it may be difficult to locate any of them in stock in a pharmacy. However, a couple you can discuss with your doctor... ...
