What is hydromorphone?

Hydromorphone is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers. It is similar to morphine.

Hydromorphone is used to treat moderate to severe pain.

Hydromorphone may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about hydromorphone?

Do not take hydromorphone with alcohol, other narcotic pain medications, sedatives, tranquilizers, muscle relaxers, or other medicines that can make you sleepy or slow your breathing. Dangerous side effects may result. You may have withdrawal symptoms when you stop using this medication after using it over a long period of time. Withdrawal symptoms include feeling nervous or irritable, blurred vision, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, and fast heart rate. Do not stop using hydromorphone suddenly without first talking to your doctor. You may need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely. Hydromorphone may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Hydromorphone should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it.

Keep track of how many tablets have been used from each new bottle of this medicine. Hydromorphone is a drug of abuse and you should be aware if any person in the household is using this medicine improperly or without a prescription.

Hydromorphone can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.

Never take more hydromorphone than is prescribed. Tell your doctor if the medicine seems to stop working as well in relieving your pain.

You should not use an extended-release form of hydromorphone (such as Palladone) unless you are already being treated with a similar opioid pain medicine and your body is tolerant to it. Opioid medicines include fentanyl (Actiq, Duragesic), methadone (Methadose, Dolophine), morphine (Kadian, MS Contin, Oramorph, and others), oxycodone (Oxycontin), oxymorphone (Opana), or any other forms of hydromorphone. Talk with your doctor if you are not sure you are opioid-tolerant.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using hydromorphone?

Do not use this medication if you are allergic to hydromorphone, or if you have breathing problems such as an asthma attack.

Before using hydromorphone, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:

  • asthma, COPD, sleep apnea, or other breathing disorders;

  • liver disease;
  • kidney disease;
  • underactive thyroid;

  • curvature of the spine;

  • a history of head injury or brain tumor;

  • epilepsy or other seizure disorder;

  • low blood pressure;

  • gallbladder disease;

  • Addison"s disease or other adrenal gland disorders;

  • enlarged prostate, urination problems;

  • mental illness; or

  • a history of drug or alcohol addiction.

If you have any of these conditions, you may not be able to use hydromorphone, or you may need a dosage adjustment or special tests during treatment.

Hydromorphone may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Hydromorphone should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it.

Keep track of how many tablets have been used from each new bottle of this medicine. Hydromorphone is a drug of abuse and you should be aware if any person in the household is using this medicine improperly or without a prescription.

FDA pregnancy category C. This medication may be harmful to an unborn baby, and could cause addiction or withdrawal symptoms in a newborn. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Hydromorphone can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

You should not use an extended-release form of hydromorphone (such as Palladone) unless you are already being treated with a similar opioid pain medicine and your body is tolerant to it. Opioid medicines include fentanyl (Actiq, Duragesic), methadone (Methadose, Dolophine), morphine (Kadian, MS Contin, Oramorph, and others), oxycodone (Oxycontin), oxymorphone (Opana), or any other forms of hydromorphone. Talk with your doctor if you are not sure you are opioid-tolerant.

Do not give this medicine to anyone younger than 18 years old. Older adults may be more sensitive to the effects of this medicine.

How should I use hydromorphone?

Use this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not use the medication in larger amounts, or use it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Too much hydromorphone could be very harmful. Tell your doctor if the medicine seems to stop working as well in relieving your pain.

Take the pill form of this medicine with a full glass of water. Do not crush, chew, break, or open an extended-release tablet or capsule. Swallow the pill whole. It is specially made to release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking or opening the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time.

Measure the liquid form of hydromorphone with a special dose-measuring spoon or cup, not a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist where you can get one. Avoid getting hydromorphone liquid on your skin. It can be absorbed through your skin, and you may get too large a dose.

Drink 6 to 8 full glasses of water daily to help prevent constipation while you are using hydromorphone. Ask your doctor about ways to increase the fiber in your diet. Do not use a stool softener (laxative) without first asking your doctor.

If you need to have any type of surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using hydromorphone. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time.

You may have withdrawal symptoms when you stop using this medication after using it over a long period of time. Withdrawal symptoms include feeling nervous or irritable, blurred vision, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, and fast heart rate. Do not stop using hydromorphone suddenly without first talking to your doctor. You may need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely. Store this medication at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, and light.

After you have stopped using this medication, flush any unused pills down the toilet.

Throw away any unused liquid hydromorphone that is older than 90 days.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since hydromorphone is sometimes used as needed, you may not be on a dosing schedule. If you are using the medication regularly, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and wait until your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not use extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. An overdose of hydromorphone can be fatal.

Symptoms of a hydromorphone overdose may include extreme drowsiness, muscle weakness, confusion, cold and clammy skin, pinpoint pupils, shallow breathing, slow heart rate, fainting, or coma.

What should I avoid while using hydromorphone?

Do not drink alcohol while you are using hydromorphone. Dangerous side effects or death can occur when alcohol is combined with hydromorphone. Check the label of any other medicines you take to be sure they do not contain alcohol.

Avoid using other medicines that make you sleepy (such as cold medicine, pain medication, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression or anxiety). They can add to sleepiness caused by hydromorphone, which could result in extreme drowsiness or coma.

Do not use hydromorphone if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you use hydromorphone before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body. Hydromorphone can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.

Hydromorphone side effects

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:
  • shallow breathing, slow heartbeat;

  • cold, clammy skin;

  • confusion;

  • severe weakness or dizziness; or

  • feeling light-headed, fainting.

  • nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite;

  • dizziness, headache;

  • dry mouth;

  • sweating;

  • itching; or

  • sleep problems (insomnia).

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.

What other drugs will affect hydromorphone?

Do not take hydromorphone with alcohol, other narcotic pain medications, sedatives, tranquilizers, muscle relaxers, or other medicines that can make you sleepy or slow your breathing. Dangerous side effects may result.

Before using hydromorphone, tell your doctor if you are using pentazocine (Talwin), nalbuphine (Nubain), butorphanol (Stadol), or buprenorphine (Buprenex, Subutex). If you are using any of these drugs, you may not be able to use hydromorphone, or you may need dosage adjustments or special tests during treatment.

There may be other drugs not listed that can affect hydromorphone. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use.
