Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone.

That said, it is a potent narcotic, and what it is stronger than depends on the dosage of each.

It is not stronger than most dosages of Oxycodone, but is stronger than some.

Oxycodone is the strongest product on the market approved to treat pain.

Whether it is stronger than the others also depends on what dose of the Dilaudid you're asking about.

Was this prescribed for you?

Actually, Opana (oxymorphone) is about 2 to 3 times stronger than oxycodone, or contin. I went from a oxy 30mg ER to an Opana 10mg and have had the best results as far as pain relief.

Wake up call... fentanyl is 80, yes eighty, times stronger than morphine. It is measured in MICROPgrams, not milligrams.

Oxy is far from the strongest opiate on the market!

Fentanyl(Duragesic Patch-measured in mcgs, not mgs) is the strongest, However it takes up to 8 hours to work effectively once the first patch is applied. It is prescibed for round the clock pain management. A short acting med(dilaudid, percocet, msir) is usually prescibed in addition to take ever 4-6 hours for break-through pain. Fentanyl has been a life saver for me. Very effective pain relief and not having to worry about taking pills is a plus, which can be hard on the gut.
Good luck to all in your quest for a pain-free life!!:)

To really answer the question:) From weakest to strongest short acting opioid pain meds in my opinion are :
1. tramadol
2. vicodin
3. morphine sulfate (MSIR)
4. percocet
5. dilaudid

long acting:
1. Exalgo
2. ms contin
3. kadian
4. dilaudid extended release
5. oxycontin
6. fentanyl
These meds were just the ones my doctor has prescibed for me over the years(20 years or so!). I am sure there are many others on the market to add to the list. This is just my personal experience. Everyone responds to medication differently. Good luck all!!

Sorry ya'll I meant to say in the long acting opioid category that the weakest long acting med is
1. Nucynta (NOT EXALGO, like I stated in the previous post) then,

2. Ms Contin
3. Kadian
4. Dilaudid (Exalgo)
5. Oxycontin
6. Fentanyl or Duragesic patch
Please note that the strength and effectiveness all depends on the dosage.

Yes dilauded is even stronger than morphine. H addicts know and I do as well having shot H for 4 years before getting sober, the rush from it is better & more intense than H but the after effects dissipate almost instantly

If you are speaking about PO Oxycodone vs PO Hydromorphone ( Dilaudid) PO,Oxyconde would be the stronger of the two, as the BA of Oxycodone is significantly higher than that of Hydromorphone. However, relative analgesic effects depend on the route by which they are administered.

Dilauded is the 2nd most powerful pain med being 50Xs stronger than morphine. 2mg IV push of morphine helps pain. 2-4mg dilauded IV push, and your arm could be cut of and not feel it.

Fentanyl is about the strongest you can get

But in pill form

4mg dilauded = 30mg oxycodone (immediate release). OxyContin is Oxycodone released over a 16 hr period. So a 30mg oxycodone ir (usually called roxicodone) and is much stronger, but short lived vs a 30mg OxyContin as contin is the same dose but time released.

If a 30mg pill of dilauded existed, it'd be like popping 7, 30mg oxycodones, and it'd be a drug OD unless someone was opiate tolerant.

You are wrong if you think oxycodone is stronger than dilaudid. People like you have no sense to speak of such things like that.
