My friend just called me in tears. For the last 14 days she was in the hospital with pancreatitis. They had her on Dilaudid at 36 milligrams a day for 14 days. She was sent home yesterday and was told to take two milligram of Dilaudid twice a day. She's in a lot of pain and feels like ripping your face off as well as hot and cold off and on all day. Is this a withdrawal from the Dilaudid? As well, shouldn't they have started to wean her off before sending her home?
