Tramadol vs dilaudid

Common Questions and Answers about Tramadol vs dilaudid


Avatar n tn See, that is what confuses me. I was told by a Dr. that he would give me tramadol vs the hydro b/c it was non-narcotic. It is then indeed a narcotic I take it. See, this Dr was not my family fam. doc sent me there. It was a pain management clinic. Although the new Dr. still had me on my hydro, he did want me to taper from them. So when he suggested giving me the tramadol I bailed on him faster than lighning. I told my Dr. I will no longer see this man.
407807 tn?1235064236 I recently went to my doctor and he has prescribed me dilaudid 2 mgs pills and plans to begin a taper. He also prescribed valium which I absolutely hate and havent taken .Is this a reasonable plan to get a person off subs??? He has shown me that he has experience with subs (bup) and detoxing patients and is confident this is the way to go but I have concerns and reservations after investigating this . Please Help me understand ???
541953 tn?1262589826 Hi Scaredmom, I beleive that Opana is a brand name, it is very similar to Dilaudid. They are both opiates with the primary pain relieving substance being Hydromorphone. It is stronger than Morphine. Of course ER means extended relief. I suggest you ask your pharmacist that can better explain the action of the drug as well as the difference between the two. It is my opinion that you should obtain better pain control on the Opana as compared to the MS.

Avatar f tn My knee is actually starting to feel better and I prefer a 25MG dosage of tramadol vs. the whole pill. That is very strange IMO. The only thing that still ***** is now I am having trouble sleeping. Days 1-5 were fine with sleep, fine as in at least 4-5 hours of deep sleep but now its tossing and turning and maybe 1 hour in and out throughout the night. I think a large part of it is my back because I sleep on the couch a lot.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tramadol Warriors! Fred wrtes, "I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
Avatar f tn Tylenol with codeine isn't strong enough. I was thinking about Dilaudid or Demerol, though I don't seem to see it mentioned much, and I was wondering why that is. Anyone know anything about either of those medications? Years ago I got a shot of Demerol when I was having my first baby, and I don't remember having any side effects from it, and I also remember that it helped. Dilaudid was given to me after one of my surgeries and it was prescribed by the pain clinic I go to now.
5611452 tn?1370974704 They treat the pain, rather the getting you high like Oxy which is not as good a pain killer. Dilaudid is about 5x as strong as morphine. I won't go into IV meds vs pills unless you have questions. "end stage liver disease, then past that it's cirrhosis.... is that correct." I'm afraid not. End-Stage liver Disease is and advanced form of cirrhosis with is stage 4 liver disease. Stages 1-3 is fibrosis. Advocate explains it well. ESLD is sometimes called decompensated cirrhosis.
Avatar n tn My worst addiction was opiates (heroin in particular, not intravenous, just insulated and suppository) I worked myself off of them, down to lortabs, vicodins, the weaker 'codones' and finally down to tramadol. Its as weak as I can find, where it still gives me the energy and clarity of mind I need to work like I do, without getting me 'high'. I just want to be able to work like I am supposed to without being recreation in my usage.
Avatar f tn people who r not addicts can usually taper very easily/most addicts can not/i could not and it can be a slow torture for some vs getting it over with via CT.....but 30 mgs a day is not alot..unless u took em all at once or snorted, chewed etc....u are going to have an easier time than u think and alot may be mental altho a bit of physical as well..everyone is different...
Avatar f tn Trace disc bulging with no substantial spinal canal or foraminal stenosis. C5-6: Mild broad-based disc bulging and mild spinal canal stenosis. No substantial foraminal stenosis. C7-T1: Minimal broad-based disc bulging with no spinal canal or foraminal stenosis. Cervical spinal cord would be better assessed with MRI if necessary. IMPRESSION: Minimal C5-6 spinal canal stenosis. No substantial foraminal narrowing or disc extrusion seen at any level. That is alot of things not right.
356518 tn?1322267242 Thebaine is used to create semi-synthetic pain relievers, such as oxymorphone, oxycodone, OxyContin and Dilaudid. I am extremely allergic to Dilaudid but not to oxycodone or OxyContin. Do you see my point? Why am I allergic to Dilaudid and NOT either of the oxys? A chemist may be able to answer that questions but no physician has been able to - other than they are just a bit different in their chemical make up.
Avatar n tn there is, in fact, a viable alternative. the medication's generic name is tramadol Hcl and it is called Ultram in the United States. Ultram is touted to be as effective as morphine for pain relief, and Ultram is Non-Narcotic. However, and this is a BIG "however": This particular drug is the most addicting drug I have ever tried. If your Grandmother is able to take Ultram, it is VERY CRUCIAL that she has enough to never run out!
Avatar n tn Jesus people, enough with the lame cliches. Oxycontin led me to the gates of hell, methadone withdrawl *****, blah blah frickin' blah. I was on heroin, morphine, dilaudid, whatever for um, I'm not sure really. At least 9 or 10 years. I did about 6-8 100mg morphines (in my fingers, my arms were shot, ha ha!) usually 3 at a time for much of my addiction, and yeah, I sold all my ****, stole some more ****, went to jail, went through withdrawal, had abseccess, all that stuff, and it sucked.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the advice, but i'm afraid I have no choice. If you read some of my post below, starting w/ 1/26 under Tramadol (the 1st time I posted here) you will see some of the problems I'm dealing w/. I access this site to stay informed and I've learned sooo much here. You will also gather from my story that I'm scared to death of addiction and what it does. I sympathize w/ you, I do. Its terrible. Esp. when the world just continues on, and your expected to just keep going.
Avatar n tn the disease that is inside me is a progressive one whether dormant or in use. after 3 relapses on dilaudid, i found myself back at the methadone clinic. it saved my life. i do not recommend methadone for other addicts. i've detoxed before from it after using it for 2 years. you can make it, i was clean for 6 months after i got off methadone. i made 90 meetings in 90 days plus. if you need help, and you do if you have children, this is a great post. but there is a real world out there.
Avatar m tn dilaudid, fentanyl, even demoral could be considered along with zofran for the nausea. It's difficult to get out of the mindset that tells you "Doctor is always right" and never question your treatment. When it comes to pain, you have to tell the docs if the medication isn't working. They can't help you if they don't know about it. My pain doc put me on the fentanyl patch for the chonic pain in between surgeries and admissions.
Avatar f tn But his dr just took him off dilaudid(pill form after came home from hospital). He told me the wds were bad, now I know what he was going through, I didn't then, I only did opiates here and there, but after I lost him, it was the only thing that could get me back together mentally. And yes, I realize I have a lot of emotional stuff to deal with yet, because I've just prolonged it. Sorry, for rambling, but I agree with you totally.
Avatar n tn IV use of heroin, dilaudid, oxycontin, morphine, etc. 2 years in the methadone clinic, 4 or 5 months on suboxone. weened down to 1 1/2 mgs of suboxone daily then relapsed, quit taking my suboxone and shot oxycontin, heroin, and dilaudid for a week straight. went cold turkey, im on my 5th day of withdrawal. seems the worst is behind me. the 1st and 2nd days were the worst, dilirium tremens, shakes, cramps, hot/cold sweats, fatigue, etc.. im still not sleeping well.
522415 tn?1242941355 tramadol, darvocet, vicodin, loratab, celexa, bextra, MANY diff. anti-depressants ETC. ~~ I go 2 the dr. EVERY month for pain management. I LOVE my dr.! I've been seeing her for quite a few yrs.! And she's VERY conservative about giving pain meds. SEE................................ the thing is MOST dr's WON'T give pain meds for fibro. INCLUDING my dr.!! She prescribes my pain meds for my torn up spine, neck & head. The herniated disc i have ARE pinching nerves etc.!
Avatar m tn I read so many stories on here of the surgery being horrible and the pain was horrible, but for me, it wasn't. I am taking Ibuprofen for pain as well as Dilaudid as needed. I will say this, I had not had any pain for three days other than the pain when I would urinate. But after the stent removal, I am having some dull pain in my right flank. I believe this to be normal. I am passing blood clots again in my urine, but that is to be expected. Let me put it this way, I HATE pain.
Avatar n tn i was coming off of soma (and mainly dilaudid and oxymorhone and also in the mix benzo's and coke and crank and alcohol) i had dug myself a BIG HOLE... the soma w/d lasted forever and a day... i didn't sleep to the point that i had become psychotic from lack of sleep and they were giving me 20mg of ambien to try and knock me out... and that didn't do it. i remember a nurse there telling me she had been a soma addict and that it was just hard as hell to get off of.
Avatar n tn Give yourself a contract extension. And, yeah, Methadone is supposed to be a sex drive killer. Of course, the Dilaudid is, too, but I suspect you had other sourcers of inspiration when you and your girlfriend were together. Congrats on sticking to the 21 day program. That says something about you.
