Dilaudid withdrawal can cause a host of symptoms that comprise opiate withdrawal syndrome. A comfortable option to go through dilaudid withdrawal is possible. Historically, the withdrawal phase has been feared and keeps many from getting the medical help they really need. Symptoms of dilaudid withdrawal can be intense but are medically manageable, allowing for a comfortable and lasting recovery.

Dilaudid is a narcotic analgesic, the brand name for hydromorphone hydrochloride. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain and has the potential to be highly addicting. If you stop taking Dilaudid abruptly, withdrawal symptoms can set in within the first day and can progress over time. The withdrawal phase is inevitable but doesn’t have to be painful. The process begins when the body is detoxing from the drug and indicates the presence of a physical addiction. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, depending on the user’s body chemistry and how advanced and prolonged the addiction is.

Dilaudid Withdrawal Symptoms: What to Expect When Detoxing

Many opiates cause the same withdrawal symptoms which can include a strong drug craving, watery eyes, sneezing, goose bumps, yawning, dilated pupils, restlessness, sleeplessness, sweating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, irritability, anxiousness, weakness, muscle spasms, muscle and bone pain, mood swings, loss of appetite, headaches, depression, cramps, fever, shivering, tremors and rapid heartbeat. Regular or prolonged use of Dilaudid can cause addiction. Even gradual tapering of the medication can cause dilaudid withdrawal symptoms. Seeking help from a qualified medical professional is the safest option in order to avoid medical complications and provide the most effective detox.

Medical Detox Can Eliminate a Painful Dilaudid Withdrawal

Dilaudid is a potent tool in the quest for pain management and can be taken effectively without incident. But for many, especially those who have suffered prior addictions, use can escalate and lead to addiction. Our renowned rapid opiate detox is performed in an accredited hospital under close supervision of doctors and other professionals.  Waismann Method of rapid detox takes less than two hours and uses medicine to cleanse Dilaudid from patients’ opiate receptors. This happens while they sleep under sedation administered by board-certified anesthesiologists. The dilaudid withdrawal phase is accelerated and occurs while the patient is sedated. They awake opiate-free without awareness of withdrawal symptoms that occurred while they were out. We don’t use opiate replacements such as Suboxone, Subutex or methadone in our treatment. The entire hospital stay is a few days, getting patients back on their feet in much less time than traditional drug treatment programs. Domus Retreat, our transitional aftercare facility, is also available for those who wish to continue their recovery in a safe, confidential environment. Therapies at Domus Retreat include biofeedback, counseling, massage and relaxation.
