Dilaudid will stay in the system for up to 48 hours. If a drug screening using a mouth swab, or a urine test is performed, the drug will be in the system for 48 hours. If, however, a hair sample is taken, the drug will still be noticeable in the system for up to a week.

This is because properties of the drug can attach themselves to the hair follicles for this length of time. Hair tests are becoming the most reliable form of drug testing because of the length of time that the drugs stay on the hair follicles.

• Dilaudid

Dilaudid is a trade name for the drug hydromorphone. It is a prescription only drug that is used to treat the dry, painful symptoms brought on by influenza and other bronchial irritations. The drug was introduced as a replacement to heroin in medical circles, and is said to be the strongest of the antitussive drugs. It is becoming increasingly popular as the drug to relieve severe pain, as the side effects it can create, are less than those associated with morphine and diamorphine.

• Side effects

The most common side effects are similar to those of morphine and heroin, although not as common. Lightheadedness, itching, constipation and vomiting are the most common mild side effects, whilst more severe effects are system collapse and in rare cases, cardiac arrests and even death.

• Withdrawal symptoms

The drug has a short withdrawal period, but the period of withdrawal can be intense. The withdrawal will include bouts of insomnia, shaking, vomiting and diarrhea. These symptoms can last up to two weeks in heavy users of the drug.
