Dilaudid Detox

Withdrawal symptoms of Dilaudid may include insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, and bone and muscle pain. These symptoms can be severe, and may last a few days or for months. Because quitting Dilaudid cold-turkey can cause convulsions or seizures, doctors recommend that Dilaudid addicts participate in a gradual, medically supervised Dilaudid detox program.

Treating Dilaudid Addiction

Prescription painkillers are responsible for a growing number of overdoses and deaths in the U.S. Dilaudid is reportedly up to eight times more potent than morphine, and can cause addiction, health problems and even death after just one use. Combining Dilaudid with alcohol or other opiates greatly increases the risk of overdose and death.
