Comparison of Side Effects of Morphine and Hydromorphone PCA
Both morphine and hydromorphone are pain medications commonly used after surgery. It is thought at our institution that hydromorphone causes less side effects but this has not been studied. We propose to treat our patients with either morphine or hydromorphone and determine how much nausea, vomiting, and itching they have with each drug

Hydromorphone extended release for neuropathic and non-neuropathic/nociceptive chronic low back pain: A post hoc analysis of data from a randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial.
The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy and tolerability of hydromorphone extended release (ER) in patients with chronic low back pain (LBP) with or without a neuropathic component.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An opioid analgesic made from MORPHINE and used mainly as an analgesic. It has a shorter duration of action than morphine.
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
An opioid analgesic with actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE, apart from an absence of cough suppressant activity. It is used in the treatment of moderate to severe pain, including pain in obstetrics. It may also be used as an adjunct to anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1092)
A benzyl-indazole having analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory effects. It is used to reduce post-surgical and post-traumatic pain and edema and to promote healing. It is also used topically in treatment of RHEUMATIC DISEASES and INFLAMMATION of the mouth and throat.
An opioid analgesic used similarly to MORPHINE in the control of moderate to severe pain. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1097)
