What is stronger Dilaudid or Oxycontin 40 mg?

I have been on Dilaudid for over 2 years now and I can't seem to get off of it. I'm under a doctor's care, but anyone who is on it knows it's very addicting! I think like everybody else, it's no good if you take it orally. It's only effective other ways. I always run out of Dilaudid before my prescription is ready to refill and recently I filled a script for oxycontin 40 mg to see if they could replace my 4 mg Dilaudid. However, I took 1/2 of a 40 mg. and felt nothing. An hour later I took my 4 mg Dilaudid and it seems to have worked. But they are very short lived, that's why for chronic pain they like to give these stupid time release pain pills. How many mg.'s does equal the same amount of Dilaudid? I also would like to know if anyone has ever tapered o...

What is stronger - Dilaudid or Opana?

What is stronger, a Dilaudid 8mg or Opana 10mg? I was taking Dilaudid 8mg every 6 hrs for six months and then the pain would come back in three hours. My doctor has switched me to Opana 10mg er and this is the second day... I am in so much pain. How long will it take for Opana to be effective? I'm 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...

which is stronger dilaudid 8 milligrams or methadone

Which is stronger 8 milligrams of Dilaudid or methadone ## Appendix 1 in the following link displays a clinician's "equi-analgesic dosing guide equivalency table" that you may want to have a look at: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1163279 My opinion based on the chart linked above is that because each drug's onset, duration of action, half life and overall potency are different, there's no easy/safe way to predetermine what an equivalent dose might be without undergoing the process of trial and error. Not to mention that some patients are also rapid metabolizers of certain opiates/opioids, which may offset any predetermined data we come up with in regards to drug efficacy. Having said that, I think even if someone else reported one or another to be stronger, the pa...

Is ms contin the best or is diluadid stronger and better i want something stronger i and better for pain i get 30mg of ms contin with 10mg of norco breakthrogh pain and that does not work. ## yes diluadid is stronger but unless u can afford name brand i would not start taking them the detox has to be done in hospital and they are not going to make generic anymore they just stopped it has been a prob my husband is facing ## just take MS Contin 200mg. it is = to 8mg.diluadid ## you need detox ## Dilaudid is 10 times stronger than morphine. So if you are ordered 8 mg of dilaudid it is equivalent to 80mg of morphine. Keep in mind that it is immediate release. If you take 8mg of...

what is the difference in yellow 4mg dilaudids i have always got and white ones that are manufactured by malli they dont work

I have always got the yellow 4mg. dilaudids and they worked great. This month I got white ones 4mg. that are manufactured by Malli. They don't work at all. I need to take two to even get any relief and it is not much. ## @iceangel, Usually when you receive a tablet that looks different from what you're used to getting, it's often the result of differences in the list of inactive ingredients; even if the dosage remains the same. If you happen to know the imprint on both tablets I can post a list of binders/fillers used in each one for a closer look at what makes them different aside from the apparent yellow dye. From what I've been led to believe, certain types of fillers can't actually be metabolized by our bodies and because the active ingredient is mixed up within ...

I have a pill i believe to be dilaudid 8 mg. Letters lCI 1355. Is this a dilaudid 8 mg? ## Hi donny, You are correct. The imprint "LCI 1355" is identified as being Hydromorphone hydrochloride (8 mg).

Doctors who will prescribe pain medication richmond va

I am looking for a compassionate doctor in the Richmond VA area who will prescribe pain medication. ## HI, BlueBell! How are you? The current situation isn't that doctors aren't compassionate, it's that there are strict regulations in place regarding what they can and cannot prescribe, how much they can prescribe, how long they can prescribe it and why they can prescribe it. It's really tied their hands in many cases. If you have a condition that requires strong pain medications for long-term treatment of chronic pain, then your best bet is most likely going to be to see a pain management specialist. Do you have a general practitioner that you see regularly who may be able to refer you to someone? Does anyone else know of a good doctor in that area? ## I do know a pain d...

Where To Fill A Dilaudid Script In New Port Richey Fl

My grandfather has Stage 4 lung cancer and we have been trying to fill his Dilaudid script for a very long time. I don't know which pharmacy to go to because it seems they are dry. If anyone has ANY avaiable information I would greatly appreciate it because I cannot stand to see my grandfather in so much pain. Please help. ## Have you tried any of the local hospital pharmacies? That's the only suggestion I can think of right now, they are usually able to keep a larger supply on hand than most regular retail pharmacies and they often give priority to people that are suffering with such devastating illnesses.

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Pain Meds Near Joplin MO

Joplin or near joplin mo pain dr that will prescribe dilaudid and norco that dosent cost $ 500 for the first visit ## I'm sorry, but really that's about the average for most specialists. Do you have insurance to cover it? Learn more Norco details here. Can anyone else suggest someone that may be a bit cheaper? The only other suggestion I can make, if you don't have insurance, is to contact your local hospitals and see if they have a social work department. The people there often have a list of resources to help people that don't have insurance, so they can get the medical care they need. They may even know of a clinic that can help that has a sliding fee scale. ## Who is the doctor in Joplin? I live in Joplin, MO and have been to countless pain management specialists tha...

Chronic pancreatitis

I have suffered from chronic pancreatitis for the last 20 years. Unfortunately the state stepped in and will not allow my doctor to write my medication for my Dilaudid any longer and I have not been able to find another doctor who will continue to write my prescription for dilaudid. I have never abused my pain medication and it is becoming quite frustrating and depressing that I cannot find a doctor to continue my treatment. it has been the only thing to keep me out of the hospital for the last 6 years. Up until six years ago I was in the hospital every two to three weeks for a period of about 3 years when I was at my worst. I had zero quality of life. Through this treatment I have managed to stay out of the hospital and maintain some quality of life. I do not wish to go back to living ...

dilaudid 8mg vs oxymorphone 10mg er

I take Oxymorphone and it helps. I just wanted to check to see which one is better, Oxymorphone 10mg er or Dilaudid 8mg? Thanks a lot! :-) ## There is no definitive way to say, it depends on you and which one works best to relieve your pain. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. If the Oxymorphone works well for you, then it might be best to stick with it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Timilan, Dilaudid in most clinicians estimation provides a greater degree of analgesia. For purposes of diversion control most opt. to rx oxymorphone which is also an excellent pain reliever. It's sad when considerations for prescribing are based on anything b...

dilaudid injections

Is there a dilaudid shot that i can get from my drs office? We have tried all painkillers for the chronic pancreatitis i have. I go to the er about every week. If i could get a shot at the dr's office it would eliminate going to the er. 1 mg of dilaudid iv seems to be the only thing that works. I took 4 mg of dilaudid tablets for a long time. Now i have to go to the er. ## Carol, I have found cases in which people were prescribed an oral version of hydromorphone (dilaudid), so at least there is the possibility of you being able to get a prescription for it. You would need to set up an appointment with your primary care physician and see if they agree that this is the best route for you after reviewing your medical history.
