My dr switched my oxycodone 30mg to dilaudid 8 mg. I am wondering how they compare to one another?

Based on my research, Dilaudid is much stronger then Oxycodone, but it doesn't last very long in it's immediate release formula. Oxycodone has an extended release formula (Oxycontin); which may be better suited for some people when used chronically for long term pain relief.

8mg of Dilaudid is "roughly equivalent" to 20mg of Oxycodone. This information is based on my own findings and is not relative to each individual's body chemistry or cross tolerance, as every drug can effect each person differently.

I hope this info helps!

16MG of dilaudid(2 8mg tabs) is equal to 30mg oxycodone. Swallowing dilaudid is way less bioavailability than oxycodone. Oxy has a high bioavailability when taken orally.

Hello everyone, my doctor will not recommend dilaudid 8mg for me. What alternative medication would be equally effective?

From what my doctor told me ,all doctors work from a base factor of zero for morphine. Dilaudid is 5.2 times stronger, and oxycodone is 2.5 times stronger than the morphine base factor.

I went from oxycodone 15x8 to dilaudid 8x6 the dilaudid was better, seemed to last longer, did what the oxycodone did before I became tolerant 4 years but is a little bit calming where oxycodone made me nervous.

Hi I have taken a lot of different pain meds. I usually take 3 gabapentin 600mg and 3 kratom to deal with detox and have to say it helps tremendously. It's the best thing I can say to try.

Try to wean yourself off of the gabapentin. I was taking 800mg. 3 times a day for about a year now, and they don't really do anything for my neuropathy. During a recent hospital stay, the doctors refused to give me any off this drug and I was awake for 3 days straight. Now I take 1 in the morning and 1 at bedtime. These are a horrific drug to kick.
