Brief Answer:
Yes you can have withdrawal llike symptom..

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend
Thanks for your query to Health Care Magic ..

I read your query and you are likely to get withdrawal symptoms even if on Oxycodone .
It would take minimum of one week to ten days to recover from withdrawal of Dilaudid medications.

But if oxycodone dosage and its effect is more than usual Dilaudid, then chance of withdrawal symptom of Dilaudid is less.

Hope this information is helpful.

My dad has been on a low dose of Oycontin (10mg) since last September. I know itching can be a side effect but this wasn t a problem when starting morphine. But over the last few weeks and especially the last few days his skin is driving him mad. He does has psoriasis as we ll but his skin is so itchy he is literally going mad with it. The itchiness is really distressing him. Could he have developed an allergy to it at this late date after using it for nearly a year?

My daughter is 9 years old. She has intermittent intense pain in her head chest and stomach pain in her legs and arms.2 random bouts of sudden projectile vomitting and blood work was done and a chest x-ray. She will be screaming at the top of her lungs then suddenly nothing and straight to sleep. They gave her morphine and this didnt seem to stop the pain. If she was a woman preganant I would say that it was like contractions that were increasing and subsiding. Discharged this morning. By 4.15 this afternoon she is in pain again. Doctors are saying nothing is wrong yet she was screaming on morphine. Whats is happening. Her white cells were “slightly off” meaning that she has a very mild infection. She is also dizzy especially when she stands. She is weak and wants to sleep all the time only waking when shes in pain. She said she felt like her body was going to bust and she was on fire. (While on morphine). She has only had a 3 hour period of time with a 39degree Celsius temperature. On second day this started. Chest throat ears are clear.
