Dilaudid Substance Abuse Causes and Reviews


Drug abuse is a serious public health problem. It affects almost every community and family in some way. Drug abuse in children and teenagers may pose a greater hazard than in older people. This is because their brains are not yet fully developed. As a result, the brains of young people may be more susceptible to drug abuse and addiction than adult brains.

Abused drugs include

  • Amphetamines
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Club drugs
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Inhalants
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs

There are different types of treatment for drug abuse. But it is better to prevent drug abuse in the first place.

Dilaudid Substance Abuse 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 do not get nausious I do get drowsy for a short while
Tue, 21 Sep 2010
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?)
Sun, 14 Nov 2010
