I'm a sickle cell disease patient and in the hospital, having pains but the pills aren't working for my pain for the last 3 days. What are my rights to receive pain meds intravenously? ## Dear Gwen, Sorry to hear about your predicament with a lack of pain relief... It seems to me that doctors will only prescribe what they see fit based on their personal/moral standards (which can be very unpredictable unless you have a good close relationship with your provider). Ethically and lawfully, they "should be" prescribing whatever is necessary for the well-being of their patients...which they took an oath for. However, it goes without saying that many doctors these days have been abusing the system and are scared to write for anything too strong (or out of the ordinary) for fea... ...

Told this was a 10mg delodid prescribed and bought from Walgreens pharmacy. Need to find out what this pill is...thank uou ## Yes, they are the same thing, Hydromorphone, the people typing that are just guessing at the spelling. And that pill is not Dilaudid, it is more than likely something over the counter. There are no Dilaudid pills listed in the U.S. databases with that marking. ## Well, I do know for a fact as I was at the E.R. last night and you CAN take dillaudid orally...... ## What is the st... ...

dilaudid for cancer pain
2 Replies RSS
Our daughter has advanced stage IV double lung cancer which has metastasized all throughout her body. She is now on IV dilaudid for her severe pain. Works very well. What, as your opinion, is her outlook? Would like to know as much as we can about this medication (including its side effects). Thank you. ## Dilaudid is a potent opiate narcotic that is used to treat severe pain. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Not being a doctor, I really can't speak as to her outlook, cancer is much more complicated to treat and eradicate, once it has metastasized. Regarding the medication, I can tell you that studies have shown that providing such a patient with proper doses to... ...

After a brain & spine surgery a 1.5yr. ago (forever living w/ Chiari Malformation & related conditions, permanent damage, more surgery) I've been on 30mg. Morphine ER & Tramadol for breakthrough....but... (30mg. Morphine ER 2x's per day, a 15mg. Morphine midday and 2-4 Tramadol for breakthrough when needed...try to keep that very limited) my condition comes w/ headaches. Common. But they have been a bit more than expected-even w/ my sumatriptan, etc. Daily, a nagging heavy headache - not always a migraine / the Chiari h/a I know so well. However, it dawned on me that when in ICU, in a hospital stay recently for kidney stones (after last surgery especially, brain & spine) the nurses & Dr's realized that when they gave me the morphine (IV, not oral obviousl... ...

morphine vs dilaudid

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,... ...

4mg Dilaudid Vs 80 Mg Oxycontin Er
17 Replies RSS
Hello~I'm on oxy 80's and dilaudid 4mgs which are prescribed for back pain. The oxys alone don't help at all. I get dilaudids tomorrow, but will be out of oxys. Does anyone know if the dilaudid alone will help? Thanks ## How did it work? Did you get any pain relief? Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, which is very potent, but if you've been taking 80mgs of the Oxycodone, then you'd need 30mgs of it to be equivalent for analgesia. Learn more Dilaudid details here. Learn more Oxycodone details here. ## Hey! I sort of figured out the conversion and was taking 30 mg. or more of Dilaudid a day. I continue to be in around the clock pain. I believe I need to take the Oxycontin and Dilaudid in conjunction with one another. Thanks for responding! ## 10 MGS... ...

I was wondering if they make DILAUDID in the ER form also. Meaning time released form? ## Yes, they do. It's available in 8, 12, 16 and 32mg extended release dosages, it's actually called Exalgo. The FDA classifies this medication as 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? ...

i am currently unable to fill my Dilaudid 2mg due to no pharmacies carrying it. My dr has tried everything and feels that Dilaudid would be my best bet for pain control. I have a mass in my stomach and in severe pain. Due to not being able to find the Dilaudid I have to go to the ER every other day for pain injections and hydration. Any advice? ## Beck have you tried a compounding pharmacy? You may also try to get the social worker at the hospital to help you with resources. Can you fill your rx at the hospital where you are being treated? ## Hi Beck, I understand that none of the pharmacies you've checked carry it in their stores, but have you also considered mail-order options through Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and others? It may take longer to arrive, but at least there would be a... ...

The use of Dilaudid

Can a person who has detoxes from opiates be given Dilaudid for pain? My son has been sent to the ER from rehab and I heard the nurse say that's what they are waiting on. ## Yes, if the doctor deems it appropriate. Dilaudid is classified by the FDA as 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. That doesn't mean that he will become instantly addicted, or that they will prescribe a long-term supply. They usually just dose the person at the ER and send them on their way. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

My wife has really bad nausea. I would like to know if it is from the Dilaudid or Fentanyl or both. She is on 125 mcg/h Fentanyl per 72 hours and 4-8mg Dilaudid per day.

Is dilaudid stronger than oxycontin? Norco?
22 Replies RSS
I am wondering if dilaudid is stronger than oxycontin? morphine? norco? norco 10/325? liquid 40ml norco 2.5mg/5ml? ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone. That said, it is a potent narcotic, and what it is stronger than depends on the dosage of each. It is not stronger than most dosages of Oxycodone, but is stronger than some. Oxycodone is the strongest product on the market approved to treat pain. Whether it is stronger than the others also depends on what dose of the Dilaudid you're asking about. Was this prescribed for you? You can read more about it here: ## Actually, Opana (oxymorphone) is about 2 to 3 times stronger than oxycodone, or contin. I went from a oxy 30mg ER to an Opana 10mg and have had the best results as far as pain relief. ## can you list the le... ...

I have a wonderful painful disease called pls. My pain management doctor has me on 100 mg of Fentynal, 4 mg as need of dilaudid,10 mg of baclofen. My crazy doctor has me on temazepam, klonopin 2 mg. My neurologist wants me to get off as many as possible. So, wonderful me stopped taking some of my medicine. I stopped the temazepam with no problems, I did not have a refill on my klonopin so went a week off of that. Just a little nausea. I separated my baclofen out from 3 a day to 2 a day. No problem. Then I took 1/2 of a dilaudid and went into a spiral like no other. I was sick when I took 1/2, sick when I didn't. Had chest pains, eyes twitched, air hurt the hair on my arms, throwing up, wrenching and praying for it to be over. Friday night I Called my dr... He told me to go to the ER... ...

New med to repalace my Dilaudid Rx- Nucynta ER
1 Reply RSS
I was having issue finding my Dilaudid Rx. I ran out and the pain was unbearable. (I used my Rx for Tramadol 50mg x 4-6 daily to alleviate any withdrawals. It doesn't do much for the pain.) My doc switched me to a new time released med Nucynta ER or Tapentadol. It works great. It comes in 50mg - 250mg. Equivalent for my Dilaudid 4mg x 4 was Nucynta ER 150 mg, 1 q 12 hr. but we had to work up to that dosage through titration. It says not to cut the pill and I have not tried. If you have true pain and a legal doc, try this. It is readily available at CVS, usually the 24 hour stores. I don't wake up in knots and crying in pain. I am very relieved not to have to drive to 15 different drug stores and be looked upon as a junkie/criminal to get my meds. This works for now and I'm n... ...

what are my options? What is affordable I have no insurance?what matches up to this in morphine sulfate ER? ## I'm sorry, I hate to see anyone dealing with such difficulties. However, I don't know what the prices will be in your area, since it can vary from location to location, pharmacy to pharmacy and it will depend on the dosage, the amount purchased and etc. And if you were to go with the Morphine, you'd need 32mgs of it to equal each 8mgs you take of the Dilaudid. Since you have no insurance, you may do better with the Fentanyl patch, it is a very potent narcotic and each patch lasts for 3days. Learn more Fentanyl details here. It's also available as a generic, as well as the name brand Duragesic. Did your doctor mention any options to you, or did they just leave yo... ...

what is stronger - dilaudid or opana?
16 Replies RSS
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... ...
