Dilaudid is one of the many drugs that are listed as opoids. Though it's primarily recommended as a pain reliever, this drug is known to have a strong 'hook effect'. A majority of its users tend to crave for it even after completing their dosage. Dilaudid is easily available in the streets where it is illegally marketed for approximately $8 for an 8 mg package.
Due to its wide availability in our streets, most people find themselves trapped in Dilaudid dependence despite being aware of the consequences of this behavior. With many online forums providing tips and information on how and where an user can obtain these drugs without following the right procedure, it's only wise for us to list down some common names that are used to conceal its illegal usage.
There are over five versions of dilaudid street names. Each one of them is completely different from the other and you can hardly point out the similarity until a serial peddler or user uses them to refer to this drug in your presence.
It's very important to take note of each of these names because a majority of dilaudid abusers do not refer to the drug by its brand name. Without familiarizing with the common dilaudid slang terms, it would be difficult to tell when your child or a close friend is using it.
There are different factors that cause dilaudid users and peddlers to adopt certain names. However, as we shall see in the course of this article, these names are borrowed from common household items (a smart way of hiding dilaudid's true identity from the wider society).
Dilaudid is referred by the following names in different streets.
Dust, Juice, Smack, D, Footballs, Dilly, Dill, Dillies, Big D, Hydro, Super 8, M-2, M-80s, Hospital heroin, moose and white triangles.
Dilaudid street names are not something permanent. They constantly evolve to suit particular occasions. The main idea behind this consistent change is basically to maintain some level of secrecy by concealing the drug's true identity in cases when a person (or a group of people) is abusing or peddling it.
In addition to street terms, dilaudid retails under different brand names globally. They include: Hydal, Palladone, Hymorphan, Hydromorfan, Opidol, Sophidone, Laudicon and Hydrostat.
This drug is normally availed in tablets. In cases where a person is highly addicted to it, they can obtain its injectable formulations which are known to be highly "effective". Dilaudid is also availed in oral solutions and rectal suppositories forms.
Some street names are generated from the different forms of this drug. For instance:
*Dust-This is used to refer to the powder form of this drug. Normally, this is obtained after crushing the tablets. Dust is widely abused by long-term users.
*Juice-This is used to refer to the oral solution form of this drug.
Just like with any other drug, dilaudid abuse can lead to severe consequences. Having known the different dilaudid street names, it is wise to learn some common addiction symptoms to assist in identifying and assisting victims of dilaudid abuse.
Apart from these common symptoms, you're likely to start noticing behavior change in addicted persons. For instance they might develop an unusual behavior of mentioning the drug regularly (using the dilaudid street names). Cases of missing prescriptions whereby a patient claims to have lost their medication in an attempt to get additional supplies are also possible pointers of addiction.
