Diladid dosage

My wife received two injections of 2mg diladid about two hours apart with the second injection approximately eight hours ago. What is the highest dosage that can be taken orally at this time and how frequently can it be taken?

Re: Diladid dosage

A lot more information is needed before any of us could answer that question.

Info like, what meds does she take, how much and how often, for how long she's been taking opioids, what the condition is, etc.

Re: Diladid dosage

The highest dosage Dilaudid comes in orally is an 8mg pill. Back in December I was on the 8mg pill four times a day, which was upped from last August when I was on 2mg four times a day.

However, there can always be a pill developed in a compounding pharmacy, and the doctor would determine how much higher that would go. I know that 4x a day for the 8mg is the maximum recommended dose, but the doctor can always up that too, so there really is no definitive answer.

Hope that helps,

Zach
