oral dilaudid contains hydromorphoneand codeine is nowhere NEAR this high potency narcotic...orally it comes in 2,4 and 8 mgs. its usually prescribed for SEVERE cancer and burn pain but its gaining popularity with chronic pain as well....in laymens terms...its stronger than codeine x 20. be careful :)
DILAUDID (hydromorphone hydrochloride), a hydrogenated ketone of morphine, is an opioid analgesic.
Each 5 mL (1 teaspoon) of DILAUDID ORAL LIQUID contains 5 mg of hydromorphone hydrochloride. In addition, other ingredients include purified water, methylparaben, propylparaben, sucrose, and glycerin. DILAUDID ORAL LIQUID may contain traces of sodium metabisulfite.
Each DILAUDID 8 mg TABLET contains 8 mg hydromorphone hydrochloride. In addition, the tablets include lactose anhydrous, and magnesium stearate. DILAUDID 8 mg TABLET may contain traces of sodium metabisulfite.
Hope this helps?
