Oxycodone Ir Or Morphine Compared To Dilaudid W Fentanyl

jess Says:

I am currently prescribed fentanyl 25mcg and hydromorphone 4mg aka dilaudid. Ever since I was switched to dilaudid I have been having severe BT pain and some not so good side effects like bladder issues that I informed my PCP and after seeing them 4 times they were telling me I might have to see a Urologist...smh here it's a side effect of the hydromorphone... anyways I was wondering if anyone knew the difference between oxy ir or morphine ir to replace the dilaudid and what mg I should be switched to.

Hello, Jess! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain.

The only Oxy IR dosage that is available is a 5mg capsule, there others are all either regular release or the extended release. This medications contains the active ingredient Oxycodone and you'd need 10.67mgs of it to equal each 4mg dose of Dilaudid.

Morphine is available in 15mg and 30mg capsules, while the others are all either regular release or extended release and you'd need 16mgs of it to equal each 4mg dose of Dilaudid.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Ultimately, of course, the final decision is up to your doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thanks Verwon well my doctor switced me to oxycodone hcl 10mg and I went through serious withdrawal for a week straight.. I couldn't hardly take it. It's been 23 days since I switched and to be honest I have my good days and my bad days. I am also taking biotin, zinc, magnesium and vit D 5000 units and on the days I forget to take the supplements I can tell a difference in how I feel overall. I am going to see my doctor 2morrow and I'm going to talk to her about my really bad days because I've been having a lot of them ever since I switched to oxy and I just can't live my life like this.. that's the thing I'm not living my life and it's been really bothering me. If there are any tips or advice you have I'd love to hear it. Thanks again
