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.

Comment:
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.

This has been a godsend for me! L1 thru S1 are all bulging w L4 & L5 torn but not ruptured (yet), Sciatic nerve pinched on both sides due to L4 & L5, CRPS, fibro and neuropathy. Take this in the morning then add Norco 10's and 4mg Zanaflex 4 times a day; throw in 1200 mg Neurotin per day, and .5 xanax (up to 3 a day) and my life is worth living most days.
