Yes, Dilaudid is in the Morphine Family. The side effects are different, but I'm
not sure what the difference is. I only know I have been given 0.3 ml of Morphine and got severe nausea, so it was changed to Dilaudid.
Dilaudid also known as Hydromorphone is a synthetic type of Morphine. It is considerably stronger as it comes in 1,2,3,4 and 8 mg strengths.I think it is less likely to cause an adverse reaction.
