Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and hydromorphone

vicodin

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...
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 even though the shot was a few weeks before the urine test i seem to be under the impression that there is still a chemical that can still be detected, and is it true the hydrocodone metabolizes in the body and it will show a false positive for dilaudid thank you
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
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 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.
Avatar f tn Hi and Welcome. Please excuse my tardy response. Our site is undergoing some format changes and some how I missed your post. I'm sorry. How was the UDS preformed? Did they utilize the Gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GCMS), which is highly accurate for UDT, and is considered to have a less than 0.5% false-positive rate? On a UDS using the GC/MS or LC/MS Opiates UDS the metabolites of Morphine, may show Hydromorphone if on high dose or chronic Morphine .
Avatar n tn 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 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 m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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
Avatar n tn My psychiatrist was the one who wouldn’t get me off what he put me on. Well here I am in February 2020 and quitting hydrocodone again. Was trying to quit Xanax which I only take .5 in the morning and .5 in the evening. The pain in my body got worse, so I started taking hydrocodone again, Dr knows, only allow myself one pill a day of .5 or 7.5. I’ve decided I really don’t want this poison in my body anymore. On day 2 of quitting and having headaches, peeing a lot, cold/hot sweats, nightmares.
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?
757827 tn?1299016483 While there are many web sites dealing with Hydrocodone and Oxycodone withdrawal, there is a dearth of information on Dilaudid withdrawal on the web. I would appreciate any insight on what I can expect. Am I on the downside or will more crap come may way? Thanks.
Avatar m tn s pretty powerful stuff compared to something like Hydrocodone and not something to be messing with. They use it for things like pain relief for people with cancer.
Avatar m tn Oxycodone (with and without tylenol) and Hydrocodone are both not recommended due to the additional metabolism by the liver into oxymorphone and hydromorphone, respectively. There is still some work on the liver regardless to process opioids but Fentanyl, Dilaudid (hydromorphone), and Opana (oxymorphone) put less strain on the liver. Please keep us updated on how you are feeling and the status of your transplant. I wish you all the best!
Avatar n tn is 4 mg of Hydromorphone equivalent to 30 mg of hydrocodone

Avatar f tn I'm taking Opana ER 10 mg and it's not on the list of approved drugs for my new RX plan. Fentanyl patches weren't effective. What's a good substitute? oxymorphone is not listed but hydromorphone is.
822153 tn?1333062995 Hello Tomskat, Welcome to the Pain Mangement Forum fellow Wisconsinite! I am glad that you found us at MedHelp. I too read ppl's profiles and note your past Coke issues. I want to congratulate you on being clean and sober. I've heard it is a difficult recovery and I admire your courage and determination. I also agree with Mollyrae, unfortunately physicians are reluctant to prescribe to those that have had addiction problems in the past.

Avatar m tn I recently had emer operation for perforated ulcer and been out of work since march 2012. Surgeon changed my pain meds to hydromorphone 4mg which actually worked and was prescribed them every 3 hours. Didn't only work for operation but also for the other injuries I have had, but within 2 weeks needed to start doubling up (8mg) on them. Approx three weeks ago I went back on my normal pain meds take 2 per every 8 hrs for pain. Prior to the oper.
801188 tn?1241647626 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.
