A detox from Dilaudid can be painful because the drug falls into the opiate category, causing both long-term mental and physical addiction.
DILAUDID ® (hydromorphone hydrochloride)
Dilaudid is the trade name for the compound hydromorphone hydrochloride. It is a potent synthetic Schedule II narcotic opioid, considered to be 6 to 9 times stronger than morphine. Dilaudid attaches to the brain’s receptor sites, central nervous system, and GI tract to control pain. The drug also reacts to the pleasure center, providing the user with a sense of euphoria. This euphoric feeling may cause many individuals to develop both a physical and psychological Diuladid addiction in as little as a few weeks. Dilaudid Rapid Detox can make the detoxification phase more comfortable and successful.
According to SAMHSA , of the many individuals who report misusing or abusing prescription drugs, 261,000 people report misusing hydromorphone-based drugs. Hydromorphone is the active substance in Dilaudid. Due to its potency, Dilaudid has been approved in lethal injections in federal executions. Thus, anyone abusing hydrocodone products is abusing a seriously dangerous substance. The use of this drug has had serious and even fatal consequences for many users.
What is a Dilaudid Withdrawal?
Once users develop a tolerance, they might find they need increasing doses to achieve the same effects. Eventually, this same individual might attempt to doctor shop or purchase Dilaudid on the internet or even the streets to appease their cravings. On the streets, hydromorphone is known as, “Big D,” “M-80’s,” and “Peaches.”
Developing an addiction to Dilaudid is relatively effortless. When an individual who has been using for an extended period of time abruptly discontinues or decreases use, withdrawal symptoms may set in. Symptoms of Dilaudid withdrawal may be incredibly unpleasant and typically occur on a spectrum. This means that symptoms of withdrawal may be more severe in some individuals than others.
People who have become physically dependent on Dilaudid may experience uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal when they quit taking the drug. This phenomenon is the body’s response to not receiving its standard dose.
Because of the drug’s short half-life, individuals may begin to experience withdrawal symptoms within 4 to 8 hours after the last dosage. These symptoms often include mild nausea, restlessness, irritability, anxiety, fever, sweating, and cravings.
Withdrawal continues to progress and usually peaks within 12-48 hours. In many cases, people may have severely distressing symptoms for up to five days. The most common symptoms are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, chills, muscle spasms, aches and pains, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and intense drug cravings. Some individuals might become confused, depressed, and in extreme cases, even suicidal.
When the symptoms are at their worst, individuals are prone to relapse and restart their drug use. Sometimes, due to the feeling of failure and hopelessness, individuals might use higher doses than usual. Relapse puts people at a much higher risk of overdose.
Some people overcome the physical symptoms within 5-7 days. However, emotional problems may last weeks and even months. Issues such as anxiety, depression and having occasional cravings can be minimized when adequately treated by a specialized professional.
Dilaudid Rapid Detox
Rapid detox is a medical procedure that induces and speeds the withdrawal while the patient sleeps under sedation. Dilaudid addiction is a severe problem in the United States. Drug dependence tends to happen quickly. Often, addiction happens in unsuspecting individuals who have been prescribed Dilaudid ® for legitimate pain reasons. The addiction creeps up fast. Once a dependence develops, chances are it’s too late to find a comfortable solution to come off this drug on your own.
Traditional drug rehab treatment methods for Dilaudid addiction typically include talk therapy, along with medications to lessen the pain of withdrawal. However, they have less than 10% success rates after the first year due to Dilaudid’s powerful, physically addictive properties.
