Brief Answer: rational use of the opioid add local spray Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to healthcare Magic! I am sorry to learn the problem of your wife. Hydromorphone is an opioid analgesic, a derivative of morphine and 7 times more potent painkiller. It is given 4 to 6 hourly. I can cause allergic reaction during first few doses. It is a good drug but may cause respiratory depression, constipation, obtundation and falls. On long term it may cause drug dependence and drug abuse. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!
