@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, the Dr. gave me IV Dilaudid instead of oral; the IV Dilaudid was a great deal stronger because it was administered directly into my bloodstream. So much stronger it lowered my pulse to 46 and my respiration a slowed dramatically. Epinephrine was given to counteract this decrease in resps & BP. Doctor should have known the difference and dangers of IV vs. oral Diladid.
