  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Family member diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Started taking dilaudid 3 mgs BID and take hydromorphone for breakthrough. Sometimes up to 6 more MGS per day above the regular MS contin. The nausea is substantial and there really is no taking away. So a combination of the above is used. took Stemetil as needed for a while then started taking regularly every 6 hours. Begininng to wean as we feel this is enhancing the effects and making the hallucination worse. We also started considering that the cancer has spread to brain cancer however unlikely and too coincidental. Hallucination are scary for her and causing some distress. Weaning back a bit on the hydromoprhone but need to know if the combination of meds is causing what we are dealing with now,
