    Default Have a lot back pain - Need some advice please

    I have a lot of back pain. I have a 7 yr old prescription of hydromorphone. Can I take these to alleviate the pain? They are still intact. Were stored in a cool dry place all this time. Are they still potent enough to work?

    Hydromorphone hydrochloride (HCI) is an opioid narcotic pain-reliever similar to oxycodone, morphine, methadone, fentanyl, and other opioids. Hydromorphone, like other opioids, stimulates receptors on nerves in the brain to increase the threshold to pain (increasing the amount of stimulation it takes to feel pain) and reduce the perception of pain (the perceived importance of the pain). So, It is not the actual med for your back pain. I will suggest you to meet physician and get proper solution for the problem.

    Hi

    Thank you for your response. Does that mean they could harm me even though they are almost 7 years old?

    I will suggest you go for the check up again and then start any medicines. Do not take the old prescribed medicines.
