Hydrocodone and hydromorphone

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and hydromorphone

vicodin

It also increases serotonin and norepinephrine which with the opiate effects are very helpful in relieving pain for many people. And tylenol has no equivalent to hydromorphone. Tylenol is simply a pain reliever and fever reducer that you get over the counter. They usually put large amounts of it with opiates like vicodin( 5mg hydro./500mg tylenol or 7.5mg. hydro./750mg tylenol) norcos (10mg hydro.
I am not sure if I am understanding your question here because hydromorphone and hydrocodone are two different medications. Hydromorphone, which a small part of hydrocodone breaks down into when metabolized by the body. the lab and doctor be should be able to distingish the two drugs levels therefore answering your question. If both test come back the same after your notating when you took the hydrocodone then you may have a problem metabolising the hydrocodone.
I am taking 1/2 pill of the Hydromorphone and 1/2 pill of the Hydrocodone every 4 hours and the full Lorazapam 1mg every 6 hours for the extra anxiety that I'm already feeling. In addition to this I take 2 Ibuprophen every 4 hours and several supplemental Nerve Formula and Imflamatory Formula Supplements to help in this process. I want to get off the Hydrocodone and Hydromorphone and Lorazapam totally.
Using Dilaudid for Tx aches and pains seems to be overkill but hey, I'm not a doctor and I'm not you either. Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) is a great pain reliever, carries a high addictive potential but generally has less side effects than morphine, especially regarding respiratory depression. Another real plus is that there is no aspirin, acetaminophen or ibuprofen mixed in with Dilaudid which can further challenge our livers.
I was wondering if hydromorphone and oxymorphone are more like oxycontin or methadone as far as being abused. Thanks.
What's most effective for me may not be for you and vise versa. Some ppl swear that oxycodone is more effective then hydrocodone... that isn't true for me and my chronic pain. However if I have surgical pain then it is true. So not only do you have to take into account a person's individual reaction you must also consider the site or source of pain. I hope this was helpful. It may be more information then you were seeking.
I went home for a little over a month began having my ole migraines again and found my old prescriptions for hydromorphone and oxycontin. With the combo of theoriginal headaches and my mother facing a brain tumor i found myself needing them to just get away from it all slowly but surely in this months span I took almost all of the pills about three bottles. And than when I couldn't sleep I took ambien.
Tuck is absolutely correct. Hydrocodone is metabolized by the liver into hydromorphone (Dilaudid) just as oxycodone is metabolized by the liver into oxymorphone (Opana). Also codeine is metabolized by the liver into morphine. Check out the article via the link below. It highlights the information that I just mentioned above.
The doc doesn't have a clue (surprise!), and wants me to see an ENT. My suspicion has been that now that the hydrocodone, which is a wonderful cough suppressant, is gone, the symptoms have emerged from whatever underlying condition is at work. Of course, the one cough medicine that I know will stop the cough in its tracks contains codeine, and that's off limits.
to my knowledge, hydrocodone is not generally dispensed alone, as oxycodone, morphine, and hydromorphone are in medications. and yes, acetaminophen is very toxic in high doses or in those with compromised liver function, especially when used in conjunction with alcohol consumption. one of the main reasons hydrocodone dependence is so common is it's availability, as it is one of the most commonly prescribed narcotic painkillers.
You can even develop hypersensitivity reactions to other phenanthrene derivative opioid agonists (codeine, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, levorphanol, oxycodone, oxymorphone). From history it is difficult to point out offending drug. Subsequent exposure can be life threatening. Hence, future exposure to such drugs should be avoided. Take care and regards.
Are hydromorphone (dilaudid) and oxymorphone (opana) addictive as oxycontin? by redblue Leave a Note Send Message Add as Friend redblue Member since Feb 2007 , Mar 12, 2007 12:00AM Tags: hydromorphone, dilaudid, Addiction, pain, reading, receptor I've been reading posts in here and it seems alot of people are/were addicted to vicoden/lortab/norco and oxycontin, but I haven't read about anyone being addicted to dilaudid or oxymorphone.
I've been taking hydrocodone for a back injury and bilateral carpal tunnel. Now I find myself taking it to feel better and to ward off withdrawal symtpoms, regardless if im in pain or not. I am seeing two doctors to get scripts for hydrocodone. One I got 50 norco 10/325 and went through that in 5 days and then i got 40 5/325 norco's and went through that in 2 days.
To make a long storie short, I ended up using after 10 years 2 x 100 micro gram per 60 hours - $1889.05 - 25 patches per month and also 2 x hydrocodone /apap10 mg/325mg per day as needed - $189.50 , Provigil (Great Stuff For modivation)$ 768.92 for 90 -100 mg pills per month x 3, and Lexapro X1 @ 365.00 every morning for depresion from the hydrocodone and loosing my business. I took more drugs than the averge person could handle.
I could stop the restless legs and the migraines and runs. I could have that warm fuzzy feeling and had buckets of energy. I could eat whatever i wanted and afterwards not worry about upsetting my stomach. I could of taken them and gone over to my gf's house and rocked her world. But i knew that if i took them the past 5 days, waiting to start withdrawls (my symptoms are always delayed by about a week) would of been for absolutely nothing.
Fortunately, they were a success and I can walk pain free again. Unfortunately, I will shortly have to detox from hydrocodone. I tried tapering a few times, but it has never worked. I would look at the time I still had to go through the taper and lose hope. I am going to go cold turkey in about two weeks. I will be out of drugs at that time. I can totally relate to Erika and Vicqueen. I got sober from alcohol a little more than six years ago, when my first daughter was only a baby.
I have a boulding disk and recently the doctor prescribed me Hydrocodone and i only took those for two days and I stopped taking them. can that medicine be the reason for my symptoms?
Diacetylmorphine (Heroin) (orally it = morphine, IV/IM/insuffilated it's 2x as strong) 100mg............Dihydrocodeine 30mg..............Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lorcet, etc) 7.5mg.............Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) 37.5µg............Fentanyl (not sure on this one, anyone know the oral dose equivalence for Fentanyl?) 4mg................Levorphanol (Dromoran) 300mg............Meperidine (Demerol) 10-20mg.........Methadone 30-60mg.........Morphine 20mg..............
I take according to my pain management doc the tops on all my meds, the Zanaflex 4mgs 4 times a day helps take the edge off. hydromorphone, hydrocodone, lyrica, all keep me around an 8 for pain, at my worse it's a 9. When I try to move in bed it is horrible even now I scream it hurts so bad. My surgeon thinks I may have addtl damage done in my neck as well this time it is DDD. I also have a more recent issue of body temp control?

We've discussed my concern about finding one that works for me, and she always lists off the standard short-actings for me to choose from, i.e. Morphine, Hydromorphone, Hydrocodone, Vicodin, Percocet, etc. The one time I brought up potentially going from 2mg Dilaudid to 4 mg Dilaudid she simply said she didn't want to increase strength. We have good rapport and she knows I'm being honest with her. Is there a better way to approach looking for something more effective?
Amitriptyline, bupivacaine, clonidine, gabapentin, hydromorphone, levobupivacaine, lignocaine, methadone, mexiletine, morphine, oxycodone and tramadol have been used in the presence of renal failure, but do require specific precautions, usually dose reduction. Aspirin, dextropropoxyphene, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and pethidine, should not be used in the presence of chronic renal failure due to the risk of significant toxicity.
I've taken all of the above (hydrocodone, oxycodone---thus my handle, oxycontin, and hydromorphone) for my back (surgeries). I definately had reasonable pain relief(no buzz) with dilaudid, and wasn't getting the bombardment of tylenol. Plus I found it less painful(FOR ME) to get off than oxycontin. Just a thought. It comes in many different strengths....I only needed the 4mgs or K-4s.
Hence, future exposure to such drugs should be avoided and I advise you to avoid Hycodan. Take care and regards.
to people, they know exactly what you are talking about, but hydrocodone, hydromorphone, and codiene they more then likely have no idea what you are talking about. Even if it's oxycodone not the brand name "oxycontin" they still call it oxycontin. You have all these kids in school who now know hey my parents/grandparents/whoevers medicine can get me high. I think that is why we have had such a surge of opiate addiction in the last decade.
I've tried them at my physicians insistence, morphine, fentanyl and methadone. I've had trouble taking all of them and though hydrocodone does not touch my pain on the many bad days I have, I choose to stay where I am. My PCP did add diazepam (again insisted I try it) which I take on nights that sleep won't come because the pain and spasms are so severe. It does help and possibly you could benefit from adding a muscle relaxer to your regime.
If she went through 1 week of Methadone to get over the worst of the withdrawals she would have went through from the Dilaudid, she wasn't on Methadone long enough to get addicted and is only going through the tail end of Hydromorphone withdrawals symptoms. I've gone Cold Turkey from Hydrophophone. Tell her she's missed the worst of it and not to give up hope. She should start feeling better within the next few days.
Thanks for your time and advice. Today is the first time I have ever been on any type of forum for hydrocodone and it really opened my eyes. I really only noticed the past couple of months that there seemed to be a problem. I never knew the dangers. My biggest problem is "friends" that call me daily wanting to know if I need any. I can't figure out where so many pills come from. They are everywhere. Yes, I always have 'greenage'.
Dihydrocodeine 30mg..............Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lorcet, etc) 7.5mg.............Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) 4mg................Levorphanol (Dromoran) 300mg............Meperidine (Demerol) 10-20mg.........Methadone 30-60mg.........Morphine 20mg..............Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet) 10mg..............Oxymorphone (Numorphan) 200-300mg.....Propoxyphene (Darvocet) 150mg............Tramadol (Ultram, Ultracet) I copied this from her journal..
I am tapering off of them because of this and doing a fast taper at that because I HATE the feeling of not wanting to do anything I was on 400 mgs ms a day every 6 hrs and 15 mgs hydromorphone 4 to 5 ad ay for BTP I went from this to 50 mgs ms and 5 HY a day within a week and tomorrow to NO ms and keep the hydro and taper from there
