I have two herniated discs in my neck for Degenarative Disc Disease causing pressure on my spinal cord. I have been a chronic pain sufferer since 1999.

I was prescribed dilaudid to manage pain for abdominal migrianes. I became addicted to the medication physically and had to stop taking it immediately. Because of my fear of addiction, when I need pain meds in the ER I try to ask for regular morphine instead. The effectiveness of the drug was outstanding, however, I do not find it worth the risk of addiction.

Comment:
I had ACL surgery to replace the ligament in my knee. It is a very painful surgery and this medication was extremely effective reducing the pain. I heard it was addictive so I was very cafeful to ease myself off of it as soon as the pain eased up with rehabilatation. The side effects I experienced were constipation and I did not sleep well at night (night sweats, side awake).
