    I was recently admitted to the ER for kidney stones. All of the medication I received that day was administered IV. When morphine didn't entirely resolve my pain, I was given dilaudid.

    Received 1 mg IV Dilaudid for severe pain. Relief was almost instant but lasted only 10 minutes. Had to wait an hour before given a second dose.

One day my pain was so severe that it went on for three days and I only slept maybe 8 hours during those three days. Went to the emergency room and after three different meds and no relief. They gave me 2 small doses of this med and the pai ... Show Full Comment

    I have severe Crohns disease and a list of other things that would make your head spin. Many of them cause me pain every minute of every day. I get this drug when I'm in the hospital for my pain, at home I take hydrocodone and I've been on narcotic pain killers for over 15 years. This is a miracle drug! It takes about 80-90% of the pain away for anywhere between 1 to 3 hours *depending on ... Show Full Comment
