Dilaudid 8mg, also known as hydromorphone, is a potent opioid pain medication used to treat severe to moderate pain. This medication is derived from morphine and is prescribed when other pain relievers are not effective. It is often used in post-operative care, palliative care, and cancer-related pain management. However, due to its high potency and potential for abuse, it is strictly regulated and should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
