Drug and food interactions
Applies to: Dilaudid-HP (hydromorphone)
Do not use alcohol or medications that contain alcohol while you are receiving treatment with HYDROmorphone.

Do not use more than the recommended dose of HYDROmorphone, and avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medication affects you.
