I have a Medtronic neuro-stimulator and it has worked for about 50-60% of my pain (my new pain mgmt. doctor says there is better technology now). So I need pain meds to get me to just a 2-3 on the pain scale. I took Oxycontin (as much as 120 mgs. ... Show Full Comment

    Prior to Exalgo 12 mg I was on 6 mg dilaudid every 6 hrs a day then 2 mg every 8hrs for breakthrough. I do not feel this medication if holding me as the previous medication has done.

    This is the most effective pain med I have ever been on. I don't know if their time release mechanism is unique, but I find that it really does last at least 22-23 hours. I remember to take the next dose every day when I feel it start to wear off. Only problem I have is that it makes me sleepy - even after several months. May try a lower dosage.
