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?
Oxycodone 30mg is stronger in a pill battle, dilaudid is stronger when give intravenous and is the emergency rooms go to pain management!! You would have to take eight times the amount of Dilaudid pill to reach the 30 mg oxycodone effect. Hope this helps
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
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.
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.
