About Dilaudid Use & Addiction

Dilaudid is a brand name for the drug hydromorphone, which is a synthetic opioid narcotic. Dilaudid is used to treat individuals with moderate to severe pain who may be tolerant to other opioids and works by changing the way the brain responds to pain.
It’s said to be up to eight times stronger than morphine, which can unfortunately lead to an easy Dilaudid abuse. From 2002 to 2014, the percentage of individuals aged 12 and older who have used hydromorphone for recreational purposes increased by around 13 percent per year.

The Dangers of Dilaudid

On the streets, Dilaudid can be referred to as “Big D,” “Super 8,” “M-80s,” “Dilles,” and “Shake & Bake.” Once a person becomes a regular Dilaudid user, it will take a higher dose each time in order to feel the same effects. This can lead to a need for Dilaudid addiction treatment. Some symptoms of a Dilaudid “high” include:

  • A feeling of euphoria.
  • Overall relaxation
  • Pain relief
  • Reduced anxiety
  • A warm feeling
  • Sedation
