Abstract: Three cases are reported where patients experienced severe central nervous system adverse effects on high-dose hydromorphone. These effects were rapidly alleviated following a change in therapy to morphine at 20-25% of the usually accepted potency equivalent dose. We recommend caution in using equivalent dose tables when changing opioid therapy in patients receiving high-dose opioid treatment.
