Do not suddenly stop taking Dilaudid, or you could face unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. To prevent withdrawal, your medical healthcare provider may lower your dosage gradually. Inform your doctor instantly if you have any withdrawal symptoms, such as
- Mental changes or mood swings (including trouble sleeping, anxiety, suicidal thoughts),
- Runny nose,
- Watery eyes,
- Sudden changes in behavior, or
- Muscle aches.
Though this medication helps various people, sometimes Dilaudid addiction takes place. The risk is greater if you already have a substance use disorder, such as addiction to drugs or alcohol. Take Dilaudid precisely as per the doctor\’s prescription to lower the risk of addiction.
