How to Use Hydromorphone 8mg?

Take Hydromorphone 8mg only as directed by your doctor. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered. This is especially important for elderly patients, who may be more sensitive to the effects of pain medicines. If too much of this medicine is taken for a long time, it may become habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence).

It is very important that you understand the rules of the Opioid Analgesic REMS program to prevent addiction, abuse, and misuse of hydromorphone. This medicine should also come with a Medication Guide. Read and follow these instructions carefully. Read it again each time you refill your prescription in case there is new information. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.

Measure the oral liquid with a marked measuring spoon, oral syringe, or medicine cup. The average household teaspoon may not hold the right amount of liquid.

If you are using extended-release capsules or extended-release tablets:

  • Hydromorphone extended-release capsules or extended-release tablets are for use in opioid-tolerant patients only. If you are uncertain whether or not you are opioid-tolerant, check with your doctor before using this medicine.
  • Take this medicine at the same time each day, with or without food.
  • Swallow the extended-release tablet whole. Do not crush, break, chew, dissolve, snort, or inject it.
  • While taking this medicine, part of the extended-release tablet may pass into your stools. This is normal and is nothing to worry about.
