My brother has Stage IV lung/bone cancer and the new pain cocktail is 8 mg. dilaudid and 150 fetanyl patch plus IV dilaudid every 2 hours. He will probably be released from the hospital today or tomorrow so they have been easing off the injectable dosage and administering it oralls. The increased dosage of the oral dilaudid is causing him to vomit, which will lead to dehydration etc. What is the next best solution to solving this insidious problem of keeping his pain under control without these side effects? Thank you.

Hello, Law! How is he doing?

There is really no way to avoid the side effects, if they're going to happen, they're going to happen. Sometimes, taking the medication with food can help to minimize the nausea.

The doctors may also be able to prescribe a medication that can help, that often must be done for cancer patients, anyway, due to the side effects of the treatments.

And as long as the doctors clear it, he should most likely add more fluids to make up for the loss.

Are there any other questions or concerns?

Thank you for your response. For all of the radical radiation/chemo that he has either undergone or is continuing to undergo, it's amazing that he is still with us. But thank God he is, because he is an amazing person!! He tries his best to eat and loves food but unfortunately has had to alter his diet as heavier things upset his stomach. He goes for IV fluids at least once a week even though he drinks alot of fluids. He recently went on a nausea patch, which seems to help with the chemo side effects, but not the Dilaudid. Very difficult to watch him go through all of this but he is doing his absolute best to stay with us for as long as possible. He is our hero!!!
