Dilaudid Sedation Causes and Reviews


If you are having surgery, your doctor will give you medicine called an anesthetic. Anesthetics reduce or prevent pain. There are three main types:

  • Local - numbs one small area of the body. You stay awake and alert.
  • Regional - blocks pain in an area of the body, such an arm or leg. A common type is epidural anesthesia, which is often used during childbirth.
  • General - makes you unconscious. You do not feel any pain, and you do not remember the procedure afterwards.

You may also get a mild sedative to relax you. You stay awake but may not remember the procedure afterwards. Sedation can be used with or without anesthesia.

The type of anesthesia or Sedation you get depends on many factors. They include the procedure you are having and your current health.


Dilaudid Sedation 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 am taking 16 and more Dilaudid number 8 mg for cellulits and am still in pain it requires 5 8s just to get out of bed the drug only works for a period of two hours and thats taking two every two hours.

I do not get nausious I do get drowsy for a short while

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?)
