Each 5 mL (1 teaspoon) of DILAUDID ORAL LIQUID contains 5 mg of 2 mg hydromorphone hydrochloride (orange tablet) and D&C red #30 Lake dye, D&C yellow which includes morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine and fentanyl.
No effects on fertility, reproductive performance, or reproductive organ morphology were observed in male or female rats given oral doses up to 7 mg/kg/day, which is equivalent to the human dose of 2.5-10 mg every 3 to 6 hours for oral liquid, and 3-fold higher than the human dose of 2-4 mg every 4 to 6 hours for the tablet on a body surface area basis.
Respiratory depression is more likely to occur in the elderly, in the debilitated, and in those suffering from conditions accompanied by hypoxia or hypercapnia when even moderate therapeutic doses may dangerously decrease pulmonary ventilation.
Composition: Capsules, oxycodone hydrochloride 5mg, 10mg and 20mg; liquid, oxycodone hydrochloride 5mg/5ml; concentrate, oxycodone.
