What is Dilaudid?
Dilaudid, or Hydromorphone, is an opioid that acts as a central nervous depressant, like all other opioid and opiates. It is also an analgesic drug. Dilaudid is a semi – synthetic derivative.
What is the High Like?
The high is similar to other opiates unless IV’ed. When it’s IV’ed it’s said to have the strongest rush of just about anything and the rush alone has been known to make people pass out or even OD because it is so strong when shot. When shooting the drug it is known as the “Crack of Opiates” because it has such an intense rush but then the high only lasts for an hour or two. When ingesting it other ways it has a similar high to other opiates. Many people describe it as a feeling of warmth, relaxation, extreme euphoria, drowsiness (which can lead to what’s called “nodding out”, where you kind of fall asleep except you’re not. You just almost fall asleep and basically just nod off for anywhere from a few second to an hour or more), breathing slows, and the pupils become constricted, and there’s decreased feelings of pain.
If you’re not IV’ing the drug and instead are snorting it, after snorting you’ll instantly feel a pretty strong tasting drip start going down the back of your throat. If you snort a lot of the pill at once this can make you gag or throw up from the taste (at least it’s done that to me before lol). After snorting you’ll slowly start to feel the effects and within about 10 minutes or so they’ll be kicked in and you’ll have the typical opiate high. The high will last for about four hours, however you’ll peak somewhere between 45 minutes – 2 hours after ingestion and then start coming down. The comedown from Dilaudid isn’t anything bad at all. Essentially around the four hour mark after ingestion you just won’t feel anything at all and that’s all that the comedown consists of.
How Can I Ingest Dilaudid and What is the Best ROA?
Dilaudid can be taken in many different routes. It is currently available in all of the following routes of administration (ROA), although some of them are only available in a hospital post – op or in other severe cases such as following a car crash. Here are the ways it is prescribed; oral, intramuscular, intravenous, subcutaneous, intranasal, rectal, sublingual, transmucosal, buccal, transdermal (experimental). The main ways that you’ll see it in on the street is in pill form ranging from 2-8 milligrams, although they do exist up to pills in the 40mg dosage range but those are almost never prescribed.
The bioavailabilities for Dilaudid are as follows:
• Oral – 30 – 35%
• Intranasal – 52 – 58%
• Intravenous – 100%
• Plugging/Rectally – about 100%
• Smoking – NEVER smoke a pill because the risks FAR outweigh the benefits
Based on the bioavailabilities the best route to use Dilaudid is either IV’ing or Plugging, since it has the highest bioavailabilities, although those pose other potential problems. If you don’t currently IV drugs then your best option is to just snort the pills. You should only eat them as a last resort since you’re pretty much guaranteed not to get high that way.
If snorting just crush up the pill into a powder, then chop it up with a razor blade, and then make it into lines, then snort away.
If shooting or plugging it’s a little more complicated and your best bet is to just make a thread on the forum as it can vary depending on what brand pill you have.
What are the Negative Side Effects of Dilauid?
They are similar to those of other opiates. You get constipation with repeated usage, difficulties urinating while high and for a little bit afterwards, decreased feelings of pain, and some of the effects of being high can be looked at as negative side effects.
What Are Some Slang Terms For the Drug?
There are many slang terms for Dilaudid. Some slang terms for the drug are D, dilly, dillies, dill, k4, k1, k2, k3, k8, M8, Big D, Super 8, Hydro, , white triangle, moose, hospital heroin, M-80s, drugstore heroin, shake & bake, peaches, and others. Slang terms that are actually used vary from region to region with different terms being used in different areas. The most common slang term for them is dillies or dilly.
Are There Any Drugs I Can use to Potentiate Dilaudid?
Like other opiates there are a few things you can use to potentiate the drug. The easiest is grapefruit juice, which inhibits the enzyme in your liver that breaks down opiates so that the drug will last longer. A medicine that really helps to potentiate Dilaudid is Benadryl. If you take 50 – 100mg about 10 – 15 minutes before ingesting the Dilaudid it will increase the effects of the nod and how much you feel the nod of the Dilaudid.
Benzodiazepines are great at potentiating opiates, but they should only be used if you have experience with both them and opiates, because that combination has been known to cause overdoses from people taking too much of each drug and there being too much CNS depression to the point where you just stop breathing. If potentiating with benzos proceed with caution.
What Drugs Should I Not Mix With Dilaudid?
You want to take caution when mixing benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, as previously stated. Uppers also want to be avoided because of the immense strain mixing uppers and downers can put on your heart.
What are Withdrawal Symptoms Like and How Long do They Last?
Withdrawals from opiates vary depending on how much you have taken per day and how long you were taking the drug for. It typically takes about a month of everyday use to develop an addiction. The length and intensity of the withdrawals will be longer and more intense the longer you’ve been using the drug.
A low dosing user of Hydromorphone experiencing withdrawals can expect their withdrawals to last for a short period of time and not be very intense. Users of higher or longer dosing will experience longer withdrawals. They can last up to about one week long and are similar to experiencing the worst flu of your life.
Symptoms include constant shaking, cold sweats, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle pain, body cramps, Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), and insomnia.
What Are The Laws Regarding Buying Dilaudid and What Is It’s Legal Classification?
In the UK it is scheduled as a Class A for Non – Clinical Use and a Schedule II for clinical use. In the USA it is scheduled as a DEA Schedule II drug and in Australia it is scheduled as S8.
It is illegal to buy Dilaudid unless you have your own script for them and are buying your own script from the pharmacy. Never EVER forge a doctor’s script because the pharmacists are trained to tell the difference and you will certainly end up in jail.
Where Can I Buy Dilaudid and What Is the Price?:
You can buy Dilaudid on the street like most other illegal drugs. If you don’t currently have a dealer then I suggest asking your weed dealer or whatever other dealers you have to ask around and see if they can get some from you. Dealers know many other dealers and can usually get other drugs by asking around.
The price varies from region to region although this thread gives a good idea of what the going rate for them is… http://www.drugsandbooze.com/showthread.php?t=33021
How Easy is it to Become Dependent and Addicted?
Dilaudid is listed as having a high risk of dependence in all major countries due to its high potential for abuse. Caution should be taken when using it for an extended period of time. It is just like any other opiate when it comes to its abuse potential. If you use every day for a month then there’s a good chance that you’ll end up addicted, this is the typical, average time it takes to develop a physical addiction.
What is the LD50 of Dilaudid?
The LD50 for IV Dilaudid is 55 mg/kg and the LD50 for oral doses for a rat is 500 mg/kg and 175 mg/kg. When figuring it out for yourself for humans I would use the lowest number given to be as safe as possible.
