does dilaudid have morphine in it
2 Replies RSS
I have been prescribed dilaudid for pain but I am alergic to morhpine. Am I safe or no? ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, which is another narcotic opiate. It's related to Morphine, but not the same. It does have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, headache and constipation. Learn more Dilaudid details here. Since you are allergic to Morphine, there is a chance that you may be allergic to other opiates as well, thus please watch for the signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives, trouble breathing, or throat swelling. Has your doctor prescribed it and are they aware of your allergy? ## Regarding Dilaudid. I always have Dilaudid when I have surgery. I have allergic problems with Morp... ...

morphine vs dilaudid
3 Replies RSS
I have had occassional reactions to Morphine shots in ER (severe nausea/vomiting, hallucinations.) And began to think I was allergic or sensitive to it. When hospitalized for severe back pain and inability to sit up or walk, I was put on a pain pump of dilaudid and sent home on the pump. I had never heard of dilaudid before but lost my appetite and anything I ate, threw it up. In 6 weeks I lost 23 lbs, just lying in bed. I became weaker and weaker and began to think I was going to die. I had told the home nurse on several visits what was happening and she just said it was a side effect. Finally a male nurse did my home visit and when I told him, he said he needed to call the Dr., who recommended going to ER and having my electrolytes checked. While there I learned it was a drivitive of,... ...

I've had two back surgerys and I have a spinal cord stimulator in iam on 60mgs of morphine and 8 mgs of dilaudid and I still have break through pain plus iam on 150mgs of Lyrica iam just wondering what I can change to cover the pain. ## Hello, Sheri! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. You could possibly raise either the Morphine or the Lyrica to higher dosages to get better pain control. The Morphine carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. What other medications have you tried? How often do you take the Dilaudid? ## I'm on Dilaudid it makes all my bones hurt really bad. ...

Withdrawal Morphine
2 Replies RSS
I was recently hospitalized and was given dilauted and morphine for 8 days. I was then sent home. I am now suffering from abdominal pain and cramping 4 days later. I did experience abdominal pain while in the hospital. Is this related to the morphine and how long will it last? ## Dilaudid contains Hydromorphone, so it is a narcotic, just like the Morphine, so it could also be causing some of the problem. I can't say with certainty, but it could be some mild withdrawal symptoms, which can happen with narcotics, however, you were only on them for a little over a week, so it really shouldn't late more than a few days. If it continues or gets worse, please make sure to contact your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## Thanks for the info. I will definitely see my physician if t... ...

 Dilaudid Hydromorphone
Hydromorphone, also known as dihydromorphinone, and sold under the brand name Dilaudid, among others, is a centrally acting pain medication of the opioid class.[3] It is made from morphine. Comparatively, hydromorphone is to morphine as hydrocodone is to codeine – it is a hydrogenated ketone thereof. In medical terms, it is an opioid analgesic, and in legal terms, a narcotic. Hydromorphone is commonly used in the hospital setting, mostly intravenously (IV) because its bioavailability is...

A morphine pump has been removed and now the hydro morphine has replaced it. Not many doctors prescribe Hydro Morphine and we have moved to the state of Georgia from California which is where the prescription originated. What can be prescribed in its place? Or are there any ways to find out who is in the network to prescribe hydro morphine. ## Hi Bob, Did you mean to say "Hydromorphone" (Dilaudid)? There is no such drug as Hydro Morphine, to my knowledge. In any case, there are many different alternative prescription and non-prescription options for pain management/relief. Although, if you're looking for a pain management doctor to prescribe Dilaudid, I think the links below may be helpful in so far locating PM Doctors within your general area: {link removed because site no ... ...

Morphine Patch

My mother has spinal stenosis which cases her great pain. She uses B transpatches 50. which provides no relief. What could be used as an alternative? She is 84. ## I have cervical spinal stenosis. I have used fentanyl patches and lollipops in the past to control my pain. It is very strong but can be given in very small doses and due to her age I doubt a pain specialist would give her any grief over it. Dilaudid also works well for me but I am a poor metaboliser so not many opiatess work for me. You might want to ask about either one of these pain meds. ## Yes, the Fentanyl patches are also what I would suggest asking her doctor about, it is a very strong narcotic, over 80 times stronger than the Morphine, so the patches come in either 0.25mcgs or 0.50mcgs. They are time released and eac... ...

I've been on dilaudid 4mgs for 9 years for damaged pancreas and now I have hip problems that are very painful, and the pain medication is not controlling the pain.. It's maddening....hopeless. ## Hello, Joy! How are you? I am sorry that you're in so much pain. It goes as high as 32mgs, so there are higher doses you can try.

pain medication stronger than morphine and dilaudid
7 Replies RSS
Dilaudid is a semi synthetic keytone or Hydromorphone HCL, so it is i feel its twice the potency of morphine, short acting though. I take 70mg Methadone HCL and Dilaudid for breakthrough pain. I did also get Percocet 10/325 but after this new law he would not give me a one. I never ever felt like a dope addict but yet feel they are scrutinizing me at some pharmacies. I am sick to death and because some people are just plain ignorant they ruined many lives of good upstanding folks of all ages. If he continues to cut me down i will go to another. I need help with that but i have no idea where to go in the Denver metro area. ## I don't understand how you are able to feel any narcotic with 70 mgs. of methadone in your system. Methadone works almost as a blocking agent once one has arriv... ...

cronic pain ## Dilaudid (Hydromorphone) is essentially liquid heroin and should be only prescribed for extreme cases of pain, due to the fact that it is highly ADDICTIVE. ## Dilaudid is Hydromophone, it is no longer available in just a liquid, it comes in pills now as well, instant release. It is a very strong narcotic, yes, highly addictive but no more so than any other narcotics. Also for chronic pain users, you are more apt to become dependent on the meds than you are to become addicted to them. Here's more information: Dilaudid Click Here ## My doctor of seven years that helped me with my disability dropped me after his nurse and wife desided they didn't want me there anymore.

My 28 yr old son is on day 4 following a tonsillectomy. He was originally prescribed 5 mg oxycodone every three hours and 15mg extended release morphine every 12 hours. The oxy was only providing relief for 2 hours, so doctor prescribed two dilaudid (2mg), every 3 hrs, in place of oxy. He got a horrible headache after taking the dilaided, so he returned to the oxy. My question is: should he discontinue time release morphine as he is very concerned about his headache returning from the morphine. Thanking you in advance. ## Hello, Beth! How is he doing? If the Morphine hadn't caused headaches before, why does he think it would start doing so? I'm not quite sure that I'm understanding your question. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you!
