Hydromorphone hydrochloride can be prescribed as an oral liquid, extended-release tablet, immediate-release tablet, and intramuscular injection.
Hydromorphone hydrochloride has a much greater risk for psychological addiction and misuse, and per milligram it is nearly five times as strong as other opioids like morphine. The narcotic is popular for illicit use because it is often compared to heroin as far as potency goes. Recognizable street names for hydromorphone hydrochloride include “dust”, “juice”, and “smack”.
Drinking alcohol with hydromorphone hydrochloride is dangerous as it can lead to fatal respiratory depression.
Potential side effects of hydromorphone hydrochloride may include constipation, dry mouth, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, or sweating.

If a person becomes psychologically reliant upon hydromorphone hydrochloride, they will show signs indicating that they are struggling with addiction, such as:
- Taking the opioid specifically for its euphoric feeling, even when pain is not a problem.
- Showing little or no interest in other aspects of life, like work, school, and socializing with loved ones.
- Powerful cravings.
- Constantly seeking or mentioning hydromorphone hydrochloride.
- Withdrawal symptoms that occur when treatment is stopped.
Developing a tolerance for hydromorphone hydrochloride is possible even if someone takes it in the recommended dosage. It is important to never exceed or increase a dosage without medical approval to reduce the potential for substance misuse and addiction.
