  •  Dilaudid is a morphine-based drug (5+ / 0-)

    from wikipedia:

    Hydromorphone, a more common synonym for dihydromorphinone and dimorphone, commonly a hydrochloride (trade names Palladone, Palladone SR, Dilaudid and numerous others) is a potent centrally-acting analgesic drug of the opioid class. It is a derivative of morphine, specifically a hydrogenated ketone thereof and therefore a semi-synthetic drug. It is both medically an opiate analgesic and legally a narcotic.

    I was on it for almost three weeks during my recent stay in the hospital. Good stuff indeed.
