A brand name for hydromorphone, Palladone is a prescription opioid pain medication. Hydromorphone is made from morphine, which has been used to treat pain for nearly two centuries.
Palladone, when used as prescribed, is relatively safe and helps people living with severe pain achieve a level of comfort.
It’s also highly addictive, and its potency makes Palladone abuse very risky. It’s important to remember prescription labels don’t always mean “safe,” especially with drug abuse.
Palladone addiction is complex and often unpleasant to treat. A detox center can make Palladone withdrawal easier to get through, however.
