    I was prescribed 4mg every 3 hours after emergency surgery for suspected flesh eating disease in my left leg. I continued at this dose for the next 34 days I spent in the hospital.It was highly effective, especially if I stayed off my leg. I am now home taking 4mg every 4 hours and it continues to be effective.

    I have bad neuropathy and the methadone that I was on only lasted 4 hours at the most due to my body chemistry. This has worked much better. As a note to all, Twinkie posted the Oxycodone has a NSAID in it- It does not if it is true Oxycodone. Do not talk about meds unless you know what you are talking about!!

My pain pump ran out3 weeks ago which threw me into withdrawal and, needless to say, the last 3 weeks have been absolutely terrible. If anyone has a pump, make sure you don't run out as, from what I've been told, dilaudid is 10 times stronger than ... Show Full Comment
