Addicted to Dilaudid
Also known as hydromorphone, much like many other prescription pain killers, Dilaudid addiction is a rising problem in America. Dilaudid is a prescription pain killer that has effects similar to morphine which makes it highly addictive. Dilaudid has become more popular with doctors, they have begun to write more prescriptions for it and consequently the number of illegal users have increased.
Signs of Dilaudid Addiction
Sometimes, an addiction begins because the drug was prescribed by a doctor but the patient doesn’t stop taking the medication when the pain goes away, instead, they begin to feel that they can’t feel well without the medication. When Dilaudid is no longer introduced into the system, the body will often feel sick and if the addiction has progressed, the patient will be psychologically dependent on the drug. It is strongly recommended to never take Dilaudid in large amounts or take it longer than actually prescribed.
