Iv Pain Medication List

Dawn Says:

My mom is in the hospital & is being given Dilaudid through her PCA. She thinks she's allergic to the medication. Is there any other pain med given in a PCA/IV form she could try?

What types of problems is she having that makes her think she's allergic to it?

Dilaudid is a very potent narcotic and usually the first line choice in most hospitals now for IV pain relief.

However, there is a difference between being allergic to something and suffering from side effects. If she is allergic, someone in the hospital caring for her would have noticed immediately, because there'd be signs such as swelling, skin rash and difficulty breathing.

However, if she's just suffering from dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and other similar symptoms, those are just side effects and are likely to occur with any narcotic pain reliever.

My mom is in the hospital also and they gave her Dilaudid...did your mom have any side effects not taking it again? I doubt they will give her more...how do you avoid withdrawl? She is battling withdrawl from Opana which is no longer manufactured.
