Hydromorphone Overview

Hydromorphone, also known as dihydromorphinone, and sold under the brand name Dilaudid among others, is an opioid used to treat moderate to severe pain.[4] Typically, long-term use is only recommended for pain due to cancer.[6] It may be used by mouth or by injection into a vein, muscle, or under the skin.[4] Effects generally begin within half an hour and last for up to five hours.[4] Common side effects include dizziness, sleep...

I Tried To Fill My Percription Of 180 8 Mg Hydromorphone At Walgreens And They Said Had Call Doctor Get A Code From Them Ito It

Walgreens won't fill my percription of 180 , 8 mg hydromorphone without contacting doctor to get a code to fill is this true my doctors office was closed so I have to try again tomorrow ## I am also on 8mg of Hydromorphone and have my Rx's filled regularly at Walgreens. The max perscribbed dose of this medication is 4x/day which comes to a monthly script total of 120 tablets. My thoughts are that a special code is needed/required by law for your script due to the fact that your doctor is perscribbing more than the maximum allowed dosage for this medication. ## The maximum prescribed doses per day can actually be 6 doses, since it can be taken every 4 hours, if needed that often. However, this really has to do with the new dispensing laws that are being enforced. Many pharmacies ...

weaning from 32 mgs of hydromorphone to 400 mg Lucynta

As a way to end a long battle with neuropathic pain from chemotherapy that started with hydrocodone and ended with 100 mcg Duragesic Patch/48 hours, I wanted to get off the patches and so first brought down, slowly, to 50 mcg Duragesic/48 hours and then I wanted to move to a different drug - we switched to hydromorphone, beginning at 8 mg 6 x day for 4 days, then 4 mg a 11 x day for 7 days, then eventually to 4 mg 8 x a day = 32 mgs a day. I am not metabolizing this well and in a lot of pain and discomfort, and so we are switching to a drug I am unfamiliar with, called Lucynta. I am to take 100 mg 4 x a day, and in two weeks go down 1/2 pill every 2 weeks until I'm done. Has anyone used Lucynta for weaning? I understand that I am fortunate to be weaning from hydromorphone rather tha...

pictures of pills with triangle imprint

a white thin oblong pill with a triangle like symbol ## There are triangle imprints used by several manufacturers, they are usually generic pills and there are far too many for me to be able to post pictures of them. What does the symbol look like? Is it similar to an hourglass? If so, that's the Ivax logo and they make many different generic products. Are there any other markings on the tablet? Like letters or numbers? ## Pink round pill with triangle with p inside the triangle on top /score mark/ 151 on bottom ## Hello.I am pharmacist from Poland, with large passion to my job...Today I found an oval ,white ,10mm lenght,6mm wide pill with imprinted on one side number 2 and there is a letter u,or n inside triangular ,more like shield of a knight shaped logo.

Now on Hydromorphone, but not working like Oxycodone, help!

I have been on Oxycodone 30 mg IR for more than ten years and it has worked fine. Now my doctor has changed to Hydromorphone 8 mg that doesn't work. Can my doctor make me change my pain meds? ## Is that morphine? Morphine didn’t work for me. They switched me from 5 mg oxycodone 4x a day to 15 mg er morphine and it was awful. Yes they can make you switch, but if you can come up with some legitimate side effects they may switch you back. When someone tried to make me take oxycontin instead of oxycodone I didn’t even feel safe to drive it was so strong. The doctor let me switch back. I don’t want meds that make me LESS functional. ## No, it is different than Morphine, though still related to it. Hydromorphone is stronger than Oxycodone, you only need 7mgs of it to equ...

yellow round 44-194

A round yellow pill that has 44-194 is daludid 4 mg it contains 4 mg of hydromorphone and is a product of endo pharm ## I'm sorry, but this is actually an over the counter product that does not contain any narcotics, of any type, whatsoever. This tablet contains 4mgs of Chlorpheniramine, which is an antihistamine that's used to treat allergies. Side effects may include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It is NOT DILAUDID. It is an over the counter allergy pill sold under the name of Clortabs. There is no narcotic in it. God bless you Ms. ## My girlfriend has a lg. bottle of pills all are yellow, blank on one side & the #'s 44 over # 194 on the other side. I am very concerned.

Is Hydromorphone The Same As Morphine

iS HYDROMORPHONE the same as Morphine I was just concerned about my aunt. ## No they are not the same drug. Hydromorphone is a derivative of morphine. Hydromorphone is approx. 5x more potent mg for mg than morphine, and is typically given as an alternative to morphine. This information is reference from: Because Hydromorphone is a lot stronger, I personally wouldn't treat them as being similar drugs. I hope this helps! Please post back if you have any other questions or comments to add. ## My drug panel came back for hydromorphine but I only take morphine and embeda. So why did it come back as hydromorphone? Isn't that dilaudid? ## which is better at stopping pain of a broken rib hydrmorphone or morphine? ## My drug panel came back for hydromorphine but I only take morphine and ...

hydromorphone and SL buprenorphine

Been on 12-8mg dilaudid for decades, tapering down to 120mg so far. Pain dr added 2mg SL Buprenorphine twice a day. Been using for 8 weeks. No problems at all. No withdrawal whatsoever. The added buprenorphine in combination with dilaudid works incredibly well for nerve pain. Am going to continue to taper dilaudid to a lower amount slowly. May or may not be on both for a long time. Will increase SL buprenorphine as I decrease dilaudid. Who knows, I may end up taking no dilaudid, but only if the nerve pain does not build up with a vengeance. Anyone else having the same benefit I have had taking both? ## Buprenorphine tends to block the effect of other opiates in most people that take it, so I don't think you will find many people that have had as good of an experience as you. However...

Mallinckrodt hydromorphone alternatives

I get sick on the hydromorphone made by Mallinckrodt. Can anyone recommend a different and better manufacturer? ## Any except Arobindo brands. I have received Mallinckrodt Adderall that were so weak I had to double the dose to get it to work. And I usually take half the recommended dose of other brands. Aurobindo is the only manufacturer that I have found that’s worse than Mallinckrodt. Something in those meds makes me physically ill. ## All generic meds have fillers. That’s probably the reason you get “sick”. You should try taking your med with a meal, A small meal would suffice. ## Nausea, and dizziness can be side effects of narcotic analgesics, such as Hydromorphone, so there is also a chance that it just isn't the right medication for you. Other side eff...

Hydromorphone 2mg prescribed

I was prescribed Dilaudid 2mg every 6 hours as needed for pain after being in the hospital for 5 days getting it through an IV every 2 hours as needed.... The pills I was prescribed were 4mg and I cut them in half.... Am I at serious risk if I take a whole pill for severe pain??? I am embarassed to ask my doctor in fear that he will think I am an addict trying to get a cheap high. This is not the case however. I actually am not a fan of taking pills at all, not even tylenol. The pain is almost unbearable. What do I do??? ## 4mgs is not a dangerous dose, though it is really strong and if you aren't used to taking medications, it will probably hit you very hard and you'll experience more of the side effects. Since it is a potent narcotic, they can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizz...
