Unlikely: If you have problem with Opiates (more likely intolerances than allergies), you are more likely to have problem with Dilaudid as well. However there may be exceptions , perhaps starting at a 1/4 of the dose then gradually work the dose up may be helpful if Dilaudid is a drug you really needed.
