Is Dilaudid Stronger Than Morphine

February 2013---Is Dilaudid Stronger Than Morphine?

Yes it is. They are both opiates, but dilaudid is considered the stronger of the two. There are times when people will report different reactions to morphine or dilaudid. Reactions that may give some of them the perception that morphine is stronger, but chemically speaking, dilaudid is the stronger of the two.

Let me tell you a story about the power of dilaudid. Or as some people call it, hospital heroin.

For 15 years I have been involved in drug cases from varying angles. Whether it's a patrol officer stopping cars with drugs in them, an investigator working covert narcotics cases or a supervisor that makes sure the officers doing the real work have what they need to get the job done. I have also dealt with drug addicts, of nearly all varieties, and witnessed the sheer power these drugs have over many people.

I have great insight as to what a drug addict goes through, but no "real deal" first person knowledge, until recently.

About a year ago I was hospitalized with a very serious medical condition. Upon arrival at the hospital I was given three back to back injections of dilaudid. I could immediately feel the drug move up my arm, through my brain and down my other side. Wow. An intense euphoric sensation that took away all the pain and made everything "alright". My world was crashing medically, but everything was "just fine". 

For the next seven days I was given IV dilaudid every four hours.

On about the third day I began to crave the "fourth hour" because I knew a shot was coming. I was in intense physical pain and needed the drug to get by, but a little part of me also wanted the drug. 

On about the sixth day I began to get scared. Not scared of my medical condition, but scared of the dilaudid. I looked forward to it too much. Not only because it took away the physical pain, but because it had a seductive power all it's own. I have heard people describe the high from opiate injections with phrases like "The house could burn down with me in it, and that would be just fine." This statement is a bit extreme, but I was starting to see why people would make statements of this magnitude.

On day number seven I decided that something must be done. The dilaudid was becoming too much of an old friend and needed to go away. I feared that too much more of this and my own cops would end up chasing me some day. I had been around long enough to know that drugs, such as this, don't discriminate. They are equal opportunity destroyers and even cops are not immune to their power.

I explained my fears to my doctor. The doctor agreed and had already planned to discharge me this day anyway. I left the hospital and the dilaudid injections behind. Sent home with dilaudid in pill form, which I threw away a few days later.

For many days I craved the dilaudid injections, and wanted more, but those feelings passed. After approximately 30 separate injections of dilaudid, and a few days of dilaudid in pill form, I feel like I was allowed a brief glimpse into the life of an opiate user/budding addict. I can see the attraction. I can see the power. I can see where it has the ability to break even the strongest of people and turn them into something they are not. The devil himself, in drug form, just waiting for somebody foolish enough to test his power.

People must have the will and knowledge upfront to completely ignore opiates in a recreational setting. They must also be very cautious about the extended use of them in a medical setting. Obviously these types of opiates have a great place within the confines of medical treatment. They are truly miraculous, beneficial drugs. However, even in a justified medical setting, the user must have respect for the power these drugs possess. Opiate addiction can be beaten, but why go through the hell of opiate withdrawal, detox and treatment, if you can just avoid becoming an addict in the first place.

Don't open the door, when you know it's the devil who's knocking.

I have actually been in the hospital for 3 days, 3/7/17 until now 3/9/17. I had to have a type of neck surgery called "ACDF." Basically fused my neck together. When I first arrived I was given 4 mg's of morphine, then 1mg per hour of Dilauded. I guess I can see the attraction to dilauded but it's so short acting that I actually requested to just be treated with morphine and then, when I leave today, (hopefully leaving today!) Maybe a few weeks of either Norco or Percocet. I am not judging anyone, maybe I do not get or like that feeling, but I just don't understand the "draw" to it..? I want something for pain that will last, and when I am out of the pain, just save them for possible future and unpredictable accidents....

Perhaps there is a difference between using it for the euphoria vs pain management. I take it because the pain in my body never goes away. 5 bypass, 10 stents, bad lung, liver, spleen, gall bladder and a few other things removed and effects of radiation burns have left me in constant pain.There have been a few times I've needed to stop it cold turkey. Had some yucky withdrawal symptoms but never craved it after stopping. Maybe some folks are more sensitive to its effects than others. The only reason I use it is when the pain goes away, I can work and function normally.

I was in the hospital for appendicitis a few weeks ago and was given this by IV. I have to say that I too found myself "looking forward" to the next dose, not as much because of the pain relief butt I'm being honest it was more of liking that feeling of it traveling through my IV and into my system! I have never been one to drink or do any kind of drugs, so the more I realized that I was enjoying the medicine the more it scared the crap out of me. I am so glad you shared this because I too had a glimpse of how easily a person could get hooked on these meds and I'm glad to know I am not the only one. That being said we have a lot of addiction in our family so unless I am dying of pain I probably won't ever let a doctor give me that medicine again, it's just not worth it.

I had stage 4a oral neck cancer and I was on the diliaud while in the hospitalnatRvin g. Had a stomach tube, almost died. Lost 80 pounds in a few months. They put me on the fentanyl patch and oxycodobevtoo.
When I was declared cancer free two years ago... I took all my drugs to the police station and never looked back.
I feel these drugs did help me more with the mental pain of almost dying and never being able to eat or drink again. A hotel maid prayed over me to heal me.. as she said amen we both felt a volt Gingrich our bodies. To this day, I would never do drugs... god gave me a chance to live. To speak of his son Jesus and I will till I die.
