There are numerous different semi synthetic opiates such as hydrocodone, oxycodone and Dilaudid which is hydromorphone. Each is slightly different chemically though all are opiates. Oxycodone is a stronger pain reliever than the hydrocodone. So no, they are not the same.

But isn't Dilaudid a Morphine also ? And would it show up in drug test as an Opiate or something else ?

I agree with Laurie and I have taken them. They are not the same at all. Ruth

They are all derived from the alkaloids of the opium poppy. So in that sense they are the same. Morphine is a natural opiate while dilaudid is a man made opiate. They will all show as opiate in a basic urine screen.

my doc said hydrocodone morphs into hydromorphone in the liver... depending on the amount of hydrocodone. he just prescribed it for me but have not taken it yet.
