My dr switched me to dilaudid after me telling him the 30 mg oxy was not helping. Now I am so sick, sweating like a horse (I know I am not) but sure the heck feel like one "neeigh! lol.. curiuos if this is all in my head or am I having some sort of w/d... thanking you all in advance ... pamee
Does anyone know the equivalence of 4 mg Dilaudid to 30 mg Oxycodone?

Every time I google an equivalence chart I am not able to find one that I am able to figure out.. ugh! Now I am sneezing with watery eyes and so so sick... could I possibly be coming down with a virus?
30mg of oxycodone is roughly equal to 8-10mg Dilaudid. So if he put you on only 4mg, you may be having some withdrawals. I would contact him and let him know your symptoms.
It's 8.44mg of dilaudid. There's a conversion page on the web but forgot to copy the page name but if you just type in opiate conversions and you'll find it. There's a part that says cross tolerance % and it says the normal is 25-75% I put 25 so you might want to change it if you know your tolerance is higher. Good luck.
I found out I was allergic to oxycodone 5-325 so was given hydrocodon 5-500, which didn't do a thing for me. I read about dilaudid and after what I read I wouldn't want to take these meds. also. I don't know the equivalence didaudid has to oxycodone. You need to talk to your Dr. to find out what is going on with this med. It is not all in your head. Good luck
