Hydrocodone and hydromorphone

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and hydromorphone


Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn I take hydrocodone nightly and don't take hydromorphone but it showed up on my last urine test..... I'm highly allergic to hydromorphone. Would the fact that I've had to take Ibuprofen for sinus headache have anything to do with this showing up??? I also was taking Maxalt and/or Imitrex at the time. Hydromorphone sends me into anaphalaxis shock within 5 minutes even at the smallest of dosages.... i'm really concerned as to why this has showed up on my urine test...and how?!?!?!?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if hydromorphone and oxymorphone are more like oxycontin or methadone as far as being abused. Thanks.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Hydromorphone and hydrocodone are both semi-synthetic opioids, but hydromorphone is a much stronger pain reliever -- about 10 times stronger than hydrocodone. btw, hydrocodone does not contain acetaminophen. Medications like Vicodin and Norco contain both hydrocodone and acetaminophen, but hydrocodone is itself a semi-synthetic opioid, similar to oxycodone.
Avatar f tn Hydrocodone can be found without acetaminophen. There is a combination of hydrocodone and ibuprofen which is called vicoprofen. Just an FYI.
Avatar n tn i take 10/325 hydrocodone every 8 hours for severe osteoarthritis, bulging L4-L5 and failed back surgery syndrome(L5-S1 fusion) and i was prescribed 15mg extended release ms contin at bedtime. my med schedule for the hydrocodone is 6am, 2pm and 10pm and my bedtime is usually right around 10pm, is it safe to take the ms contin at the same time as the hydrocodone?
Avatar f tn If I was to take oxycodone then hydrocodone and went to take a drug test will I fail for the same thing or two different drugs?
801188 tn?1241651226 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
917008 tn?1251227579 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.
Avatar m tn I have been taking hydrocodone for the past 6 months 10 325 8 times a day. Today my doctor change me to Hydromorphone 4 mg 6 times a day is this going to be enough to control my pain just took my first one about 30 minutes ago and feel nothing.
541558 tn?1214053575 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.
8487796 tn?1398347327 I'm sorry, my mistake... I meant to say HYDROMORPHONE, not "hydrocodone". False positive for hydromorphone.
Avatar n tn Look up Suboxone Doctors in your area, or Naltrexone Doctors. Google it and call and talk to the nurse.. Good luck and stick to this forum, it will help you...
Avatar m tn Do you suspect that they filled it with Hydrocodone instead of the Oxycodone? If so - that tablet is important and should be checked. Different manufacturers make different looking tablets - of the same drug. They all have to meet the same FDA standards. Oxycodone is oxycodone regardless of which manufacturer produces the tablet. They will all test the same. With GC/MS or LC/MS testing, Hydrocodone may show metabolites of Hydromorphone but it shouldn't read as Oxycodone.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn I just took a drug test and it came came positive for hydromorphone not sure what it is I take 6 vicoden a day and answers
199177 tn?1490502134 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..............
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar m tn 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?
