Hi,

Thanks for this question. The answer to your question is that YES, dilaudid is stronger than morphine. About 7.5 mg of dilaudid is equivalent to about 30 mg of morphine sulfate. However morphine is relatively longer acting so a better option for chronic pain. However both are good painkillers, it depends for what purpose they are being used.
