Comment:
I suffer from chronic back pain. I have taken Norco, vicodin and oxycontin and fentanyl patches and for sure the Dilauded has been the best for pain relief.

Comment:
I have two intradural spinal tumors, a teathered spinal cord and a herniated disk. I take the 10mg dose od Dilaudid and it works great as long as I take them on a regular basis, as directed. It is important to take on a regular basis and not just when you get a sudden pain as it won't work but about 50% of its strength and takes longer to work. This is just one med that I take with others. ... Show Full Comment
