Dilaudid Oxygen Saturation Decreased Reviews

Wed, 10 Feb 2010
I have an interthecal pain pump that gives me 10 mg of Dilaudid every 24 hours contstant. I have severe swelling and edema of the lower legs and feet. Is this a normal side effect of this medication? My medication was recently changed from Morphine to Dilaudid, but the swelling didn't start until about 4 weeks after the change. I have had an ultrasound to rule out blood clots in my legs and those tests came back normal. Please help. Thanks.

On two separate occasions my side effects included; Horrible angry and or frustrating dreams that I felt trapped in for long periods of time, but when I was able to pull myself out of the dream only 4-5 minutes would have passed. I would fall instantly back to sleep and the whole cycle would start over again. While in the dream state I wanted to talk, to ask for help or scream for help yet for some reason my mouth would not open, and not a sound would come out. At other times, especially while in the ER I feel anxious and really frightened about some thing that is happening to and around me. I hear conversations going on about me and my condition and I want to speak up before they do something bad to me. I feel like I am telling all of them but no one hears me. My eyes are closed and they think I am asleep, but I am talking to them and they are talking amongst each other. It is like something out of the twlight zone. I have asked my husband afterwords if I was saying anything and he says no. These dream states continue for as long as the Delaudid is in my system, could just be 6-8 hours or could be for days at a time. I wonder if other people have experienced these terrors.

Seven months after a diagnosis of terminal stage 4 lung cancer, hydromorphone (Dilaudid) is the only drug that alleviates the pain. Absolutely zero side effects.

i was treated in er for pain with 2 stacked doses of Dilaudid equals 3 mg. given with zofran for nausea. i stopped breathing. they gave me narcan and came out of it, but i had severe trembling legs and extremities with severe hyperventilation. it's been a month and i still am having leg weakness, involuntary muscle twitching and feel extremely weak (besides being 3 weeks post op). did the narcan or Dilaudid do something to me or set off a reaction that may lead to other problems (ex like MS or something?)
