what are the reasons why I should not take hydromorphone if my spine has curvature?
29 Feb 2012
jimandtoni ... I want to answer you because my mother has severe scoliosis. It's really bad and extremely painful. She has been on Hydromorphone 2mg. continuously for 8 months. Today the doctor upped her dose to 8mg every 4 hours. I do not know of any reasons why you should not take hydromorphone for the pain in your spine. Did your doctor tell you it shouldn't be taken for scoliosis?
