Dilaudid Addiction Treatment

Dilaudid is an opioid drug used to treat moderate to severe pain. It’s often prescribed after surgery or for breakthrough pain (a sudden increase in pain related to a chronic condition, such as cancer). Dilaudid is available in tablet and liquid form, and in an extended-release form.

Dilaudid (hydromorphone) is more powerful that oxycodone and 5-10 times more powerful than morphine. This greatly increases a person’s risk of becoming addicted or dependent on the drug. Dilaudid abuse is dangerous because it can lead to respiratory failure, especially when combined with alcohol or other drugs.


If you or a loved one is struggling with Dilaudid addiction, it’s important to get help from a reputable Dilaudid rehab center.


Signs of Dilaudid Addiction

Addiction and dependency are often linked, but they aren’t the same thing. Addiction is when you feel a compulsive urge to use the drug even when it negatively affects your life. Dependency means you have withdrawal symptoms when the drug wears off or when you cut back or stop taking it.


Signs of Dilaudid addiction include:

  • Using more of the drug than you intended or for a longer period than intended
  • Not being able to stop or cut back
  • Losing interest in activities you once enjoyed because of drug use
  • Using the drug even when it’s causing problems at work, school, or in personal and professional relationships
  • Using the drug to deal with negative feelings or anxiety

Hydromorphone withdrawal symptoms (which indicate dependency) include:

  • Muscle pain
  • Abdominal pain or diarrhea
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Restlessness
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety or irritability
  • Dilated pupils
  • Watery eyes
  • Fast heart rate
  • Excessive yawning
  • Insomnia
