Dilaudid, like other opioids, often causes hypogonadism and hormone imbalances in chronic users of both sexes. This side effect is dose-dependent and occurs in both therapeutic and recreational users. A high dose of morphine can impair finger tapping and the ability to maintain a low constant level of isometric force.
