Dilaudid 4 mg
It is typically advised to use Dilaudid for a brief period of time at the lowest effective dose. The recommended initial beginning dose for each patient is 2 to 4 mg of Dilaudid to be taken as directed every 4 to 6 hours. Patients over 65 years old, however, can begin with a lesser dose. A dose that is initially prescribed to someone who has renal or hepatic impairment is 1/4 to 1/2 the regular dose.
