What is stronger, a Dilaudid 8mg or Opana 10mg? I was taking Dilaudid 8mg every 6 hrs for six months and then the pain would come back in three hours. My doctor has switched me to Opana 10mg er and this is the second day... I am in so much pain. How long will it take for Opana to be effective? I'm suffering, help. ## Hello, Dana! How are you doing? I am so sorry that you're in pain. You need 10.67 mgs of the Opana to equal each 8mgs you were taking of the Dilaudid, so the 10mg ER is not an equivalent dose, which likely explains your problem. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Have you contacted your doctor? You need to let them know that this dose... ...

Dilaudid 4mg help????
5 Replies RSS
If i just take one, will it make me go to sleep? or will i feel fine or out of it?? i dont wanna take it at the wrong time.. ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, which is a very potent narcotic. I can cause the side effects you mentioned, but there is really no way for anyone to say how it is going to affect you. It can vary from person to person and depends on your tolerance to narcotics. Learn more: How do narcotics usually affect you? ## I take 2 30mg oxycodone every 3 hrs, my Q is this will 8mg of Dilaudid be enought to help me out of pain? What is the eq. of the two which is stronger? ## I take 2 - 30mg oxycodone RR 7 was switched to 2 - 4mg Dilaudid. my q is this which is stronger, and what is the reasoning behind her thinking this would be enough, what is the... ...

brand ms contin 100mg 60mg and brand dilaudid 8mg
Post a Reply
Has anyone in the chicagoland area been receiving prescriptions of both 100mg and 60mg BRAND (Purdue Pharma, L.P.) MsContin and thought they were not working as well as usual? I have also noticed a very strong salty taste to them along with their weight being off and weighing much lighter that ones I have got in past prescriptions. I am also experiencing this with BRAND (Purdue Pharma, L.P) Dilaudid 8mg tablets. They don't seem to be relieving my pain nearly as well and many have had a very strong salty taste to them. Does anyone have any advice? I have been filling them at Walgreens. My doctor made me change pharmacies b/c the small, independent pharmacy I was going to before wasn't putting all my Rx's into the IL RX Monitoring Database. The ONLY medication of mine I am gettin ...

Are Dilaudid and Oxycodone the same?
9 Replies RSS
My dr switched my oxycodone 30mg to dilaudid 8 mg. I am wondering how they compare to one another? ## Based on my research, Dilaudid is much stronger then Oxycodone, but it doesn't last very long in it's immediate release formula. Oxycodone has an extended release formula (Oxycontin); which may be better suited for some people when used chronically for long term pain relief. 8mg of Dilaudid is "roughly equivalent" to 20mg of Oxycodone. This information is based on my own findings and is not relative to each individual's body chemistry or cross tolerance, as every drug can effect each person differently. I hope this info helps! ## what mg of dilaudid is equal to 15 mg of oxycodone? ## 16MG of dilaudid(2 8mg tabs) is equal to 30mg oxycodone. Swallowing dilaudid is way ... ...

Im taking 30mg of oxycodone 6xa day would 8mg of hydromorphone 4 x a day be better was on 30 mg of oxycodone every 4 hours with 15 mg of oxycodone in between now they have cut me down to 30mg 6 times a day should i stay on the oxycodone or switch to hydrmorhone? ## In order to be equivalent to your current dosage of Oxycodone, you would need 67.5mgs of the Hydromorphone. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Did your doctor suggest this change? ## Hydrmorhone is duladid correct or incorrect, and what is oxymorphone? ## Matthew, Yes, hydromorphone is Dilaudid while oxymorphone is better known under the brand name Opana.Both are very potent opiods that carry a... ...

Hydromorphone 8mg Round Scored One Side 54 Over425 Other
4 Replies RSS
was gived 8mg. and has 54one side 425under that,scored on other sde ## Indeed, what you have there is a relatively expensive 8mg instant release hydromorphone hydrochloride, made in US, forgive me but I have forgotten the maker. Not Abbott Dilaudid brand, which are sorta rounded triangular shape with Abbott logo obverse and large '8' reverse. As are the most excellent ones by Covidien, under their Mallinckrodt label, only difference being the logo, a capital M in a square. Have not tried your 54 425 pills but they are reputedly of highest quality. Palladone 2.6mg capsules are the strongest instant hydromorph available where I live and are not often prescribed, Palladone SR 12-hour formulation being preferred, though for some reason that brand (by Purdue/Napp/Mundipharma, who sel... ...

8mg of dilotid or 30mg of morphine sulfate.Which is stronger? Kadian 100mg or Morphine Sulfate 100mg which is stronger? They discharged me because he was not comfortable with the amounts I needed Plse tell me ASAP ## Hello, Scooter! How are you? Kadian is just brand name for Morphine, so those are actually equal. As to the Morphine and Dilaudid, those are almost equivalent, too. It takes 7.5mgs of Dilaudid to equal each 30mgs of Morphine. However, I am not quite sure what it is that you're asking. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ...

can I take oxycodone if I have hep-c?
3 Replies RSS
I Have had HepC for years. Been on dilaudid 8mg. for a couple years. Still in pretty bad pain. Would oxycodone 30mgs. be stronger than my Dilaudids? ## Hello, Sassie! How are you? Yes, you'd only beed 21.33mgs of Oxycodone to be equal to each 8mg Dialudid, so the 30mgs is actually a stronger dosage. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## So, oxycodone 30 mg is stronger than Dilaudid 8 mg?

I've been taking 8-12 mg of diladid a day fir servere pain n my back I've run out an I have opana 15 mg ERs so will it be ok to take one a day til I see my doctor ,as in it wont make me o.d. They are both strong meds so I'm thinking since I've built up a tolerance to the diladid that I will be able to take at east one pill a day to keep from being sick an in pain without it being too much ? Any thoughts ## Hello, Filly! How are you? You shouldn't make such a switch, without your doctor's approval. Each 8mg of Dilaudid is equal to 10.67mgs of the Opana. Both of these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. And what could cause an OD depends on each individual p... ...

hair drug screening and how long drugs stay in you
3 Replies RSS
If Vernon or anyone else would know the answer to this question; I would greatly appreciate it. I have written a few times about being given very STRONG pain medication and not getting any relief. It was via an IV and the meds were Morphine 8mg, Dilaudid (2 shots?? don't know why..) and Toradol. I just need to know if a HAIR TEST which my doctor will prescribe for me would indicate the presence of Morphine, Toradol and Dilaudid (which is 10 times as strong as oxycontin 40mg depending on the dose) ?? I read that ALL drugs can be detected in your hair even if you wash your hair every day and are out in the sunlight 24/7....and they can tell with some degree of accuracy the approx. date of the introduction of said meds into one's system. If Vernon is still there...I did make a comp... ...
