Comment:
I went to the ER with severe abdominal pain. After the the nurse gave me an IV with dilaudid within 2 minutes the pain was gone, and i felt good. It did constipate me though.I gave it 3 stars for ease of use bacause, it is an injectable. I had no dizzyness or vomiting. Nothing, just felt better. Really relaxed.It turned out i have a very large gall stone. I recomend this drug for severe pain.

This medication like to have blown my head off. My ears started ringing, severe dizziness, nausea, vomiting, it was awful. I was given two different types of anti nausea meds in iv to stop the side effects, however, didn't work. I slept for a full day from 1 mg of dilaudid iv. Will never have the stuff again! I thought I was overdosed.

It is good as far as helping ease pain. I have used it for both post-surgical pain & monthly severe uterine pain. The only problem I had with it was even after taking one pill, I would have these dizzy spells off & on over a few weeks period. Drink alot. I found it dehydrated me alot. And, if you're prone to constipation, take a laxative to help.

I was given this in the emergency room when I had a severe migraine and it made a noticable difference. The last 2 times I had severe pain I was given demerol with very little relief.
