Dilaudid is safe as long as it is taken as prescribed by her doctor. Dilaudid is the brand name for hydromorphone, an opioid (narcotic) pain reliever. After your mother has taken Dilaudid for awhile, if she should want to discontinue it, she would need to consult with her doctor and gradually taper off of it to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
