    What are the side effects of Dilaudid?

Thank you. My father has pancreatic cancer. He is a vet. He is concerned that the side effects of dilaudid, which has been prescribed for him, may cause a recurrence of ptsd side effects. Do you know if dilaudid might produce any mental side effects ? Thanks

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It can have some mental health effects such as dysphoria (unease or dissactisfaction), mood swings, nightmares, depression, euphoria.

These do not occur in everyone but it is difficult to predict who would have this reaction.
