## used for severe pain in initial emergency visit to hospital, ## Is delodid and dilaudid the same thing? Is delodid a slang, it is listed on internet under painkillers, typically in individual testimoies. Have small, oblong light red pill, Wiith an A on one side, 9 scored 0 on the other. Told this was a 10mg delodid prescribed and bought from Walgreens pharmacy. Need to find out what this pill is...thank uou ## Yes, they are the same thing, Hydromorphone, the people typing that are just guessing at the spelling. And that pill is not Dilaudid, it is more than likely something over the counter. There are no Dilaudid pills listed in the U.S. databases with that marking. ## Well, I do know for a fact as I was at the E.R. last night and you CAN take dillaudid orally...... ## What is the st... ...

morphine vs dilaudid
2 Replies RSS
I have had occassional reactions to Morphine shots in ER (severe nausea/vomiting, hallucinations.) And began to think I was allergic or sensitive to it. When hospitalized for severe back pain and inability to sit up or walk, I was put on a pain pump of dilaudid and sent home on the pump. I had never heard of dilaudid before but lost my appetite and anything I ate, threw it up. In 6 weeks I lost 23 lbs, just lying in bed. I became weaker and weaker and began to think I was going to die. I had told the home nurse on several visits what was happening and she just said it was a side effect. Finally a male nurse did my home visit and when I told him, he said he needed to call the Dr., who recommended going to ER and having my electrolytes checked. While there I learned it was a drivitive of,... ...

4mg Dilaudid Vs 80 Mg Oxycontin Er
13 Replies RSS
Hello~I'm on oxy 80's and dilaudid 4mgs which are prescribed for back pain. The oxys alone don't help at all. I get dilaudids tomorrow, but will be out of oxys. Does anyone know if the dilaudid alone will help? Thanks ## How did it work? Did you get any pain relief? Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, which is very potent, but if you've been taking 80mgs of the Oxycodone, then you'd need 30mgs of it to be equivalent for analgesia. Learn more Dilaudid details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. ## Hey! I sort of figured out the conversion and was taking 30 mg. or more of Dilaudid a day. I continue to be in around the clock pain. I believe I need to take the Oxycontin and Dilaudid in conjunction with one another. Thanks for responding! ## 10 MGS... ...

tampa er to be given dilaudid for migraine ? ## I'm sorry, but ERs and doctors don't advertise according to what medications they may or may not administer. Dilaudid is generally the first line treatment choice for severe migraines, but there are no guarantees that any ER will administer it. Learn more Dilaudid details here. 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 about a solution for your migraines? ...

My wife has really bad nausea. I would like to know if it is from the Dilaudid or Fentanyl or both. She is on 125 mcg/h Fentanyl per 72 hours and 4-8mg Dilaudid per day. LR ## I have a three year battle with severe abdominal pain which all started due to internal bleeding from a ruptured cyst. I have been on all sorts of pain medications. Currently I am on Fentanyl 100mg patchs and Dilaudid 4 mg. They used to work great but now it seems like only the IV dilaudid will give me any relief. I constantly have to go to the ER for pain management and I hate going due to the fact that I live in a small town which and the some doctors think that all I want is pain medication.there is such a big stigma about being on pain meds.has there been anything eles that anyone could recomend I am really de... ...

New med to repalace my Dilaudid Rx- Nucynta ER
1 Reply RSS
I was having issue finding my Dilaudid Rx. I ran out and the pain was unbearable. (I used my Rx for Tramadol 50mg x 4-6 daily to alleviate any withdrawals. It doesn't do much for the pain.) My doc switched me to a new time released med Nucynta ER or Tapentadol. It works great. It comes in 50mg - 250mg. Equivalent for my Dilaudid 4mg x 4 was Nucynta ER 150 mg, 1 q 12 hr. but we had to work up to that dosage through titration. It says not to cut the pill and I have not tried. If you have true pain and a legal doc, try this. It is readily available at CVS, usually the 24 hour stores. I don't wake up in knots and crying in pain. I am very relieved not to have to drive to 15 different drug stores and be looked upon as a junkie/criminal to get my meds. This works for now and I'm n... ...

Dr told me have to change from 180 dilaudid 8mg to ER of something
2 Replies RSS
what are my options? What is affordable I have no insurance?what matches up to this in morphine sulfate ER? ## I'm sorry, I hate to see anyone dealing with such difficulties. However, I don't know what the prices will be in your area, since it can vary from location to location, pharmacy to pharmacy and it will depend on the dosage, the amount purchased and etc. And if you were to go with the Morphine, you'd need 32mgs of it to equal each 8mgs you take of the Dilaudid. Since you have no insurance, you may do better with the Fentanyl patch, it is a very potent narcotic and each patch lasts for 3days. Learn more Fentanyl details here. It's also available as a generic, as well as the name brand Duragesic. Did your doctor mention any options to you, or did they just leave yo... ...

I have been trying for something to fix my migraines for years. After trying preventatives my neurologist went to narcotics.

Dilaudid Elago 24mg ER once a day versus 120mg. MS Contin
2 Replies RSS
I have several physical back,neck,knee,foot issues that cause chronic pain. I have been on pain medications for about 20 years. Yes..I know it sounds like a long time. But I had small kids to raise and a very unsupportive husband. I am at a pain clinic. Recently I asked to be taken off of MS Contin 60mg. twice a day with 3 tablets of 4mg. dilaudid for breakthrough pain. I did take the dilaudid sparingly according to my activity level. Well..they wanted me to try long acting ELAGO in place of the morphine. I feel like the ELAGO does not last 24 hours and I feel like I need to take more 4mg. dilaudid. I also feel like I am getting a rapid heartbeat sometimes. Could you tell me what may be happening to me? I was hoping to not have to take anything other than the ELAGO ER, but it is not the... ...

I was taking Dilaudid 8mg every 6 hrs for six month's and then the pain would come back in three hour's. My doctor has switched me too Opana 10mger and this is the second day. I want to die. I am in so much pain,how long will it take for Opana to be effective? suffering , help. ## Hello, Dana! How are you doing? I am so sorry that you're in pain. You need 10.67 mgs of the Opana to equal each 8mgs you were taking of the Dilaudid, so the 10mg ER is not an equivalent dose, which likely explains your problem. 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 contacted your doctor? You need to let them know that this dose isn't working for you. ## It... ...

Is 100Mg morphine sulf er, 600 Mg gabapentin 3 aday, 4 dilaudid 4Mg, 1 ambian 10Mg,and 1 elival 50 Mg, aday to much? EVERY DAY ,THANK YOU! ## There is really nothing unusual about these dosages and dosage frequencies for someone who is obviously being treated for chronic pain. The only time it would really be considered too much is if you had suddenly jumped to these dosages, without ever having used them before. Really, the operative questions is, have these all been prescribed by the same doctor, so your usage and dosages are monitored? Morphine ER this is a generic for MS Contin, a time released tablet. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Gabapentin, the active ingredient in Neurontin is an anticonvulsant also used to treat nerve pain. C... ...

Because I moved to Tampa, I can't get the medication filled in Pinellas county. This is nuts!

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... ...

3 Replies RSS
I was just changed from the best pain meds I have found in 12 years of chronic pain (Exalgo ER 16mg + 4mg x 4 for breakthrough) because of a Medicare deal. Now I'm dealing with Opana ER 30mg twice daily and 10mg hydromorphone. So far the itching hasn't killed me, but I am reminded of why we switched in the first place. On the other hand, the strength seems more... I haven't been able to fill Opana ER (from Thurs to Tues is a long haul especially if I didn't have a spouse who hide meds when I need them to...) My math sucks. Not as much as withdrawal or OD though. What's the conversion? Happy Florist's Day! My first day here, glad I found you. ## Yes, you are on a slightly higher dosage, now. Thats why it feels like the strength is more. This is a narcotic analgesi... ...
