My 22 yr. old daughter was given Dilaudid during her last sickle cell treatment, but is experiencing extreme sensitivity around the belly area; cannot wear her pajama, panty, or anything. She was throwing up this time which does not usually happen. Is this a side effect?
Was your daughter on any other narcotic medication before the Dilaudid? Dilaudid is a very stong opiate and should only be taken by people who are opiate tolerant.
Side effects of Dilaudid include:
shallow breathing, slow heartbeat;
cold, clammy skin;
severe weakness or dizziness; or
feeling light-headed, fainting.
Less serious Dilaudid side effects are more likely to occur, such as:
nausea, vomiting, constipation, loss of appetite;
warmth, tingling, or redness under your skin;
