Version 2.77


Hydromorphone is a drug used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It is known by the trade name Dilaudid®. An extended-release version called Palladone® SR was available for a short time in the United States before being voluntarily withdrawn from the market after an FDA advisory released in July 2005. Hydromorphone belongs to a category of drugs known as opioid agonists. It is commonly given to patients who have recently undergone surgery or who have suffered serious injury. Hydromorphone is often sought after by opiate drug abusers as it is one of the most potent of all prescription narcotics, when taken parenterally.

Hydromorphone is an opioid and part of a large class of medications used to treat acute and chronic pain and manage opioid abuse and dependence. It is metabolized in the liver to hydromorphone-3-glucuronide (H3G, ~40%), dihydroisomorphine (~ 1%), dihydromorphine (~.1%) as well as trace amounts of hydromorphone-3-sulfate, norhydromorphone, and nordihydroisomorphone. PMID: 15504625 Hydromorphone and its metabolites are excreted from the kidney and can be detected in urine to monitor compliance or identify illicit opioid drug use. Source: Regenstrief LOINC
