    Comment:
    Oral dilaudid causes me headaches and constipation. This medication is highly addictive and is much better or effective as an IV drug administered after surgery or in cases of extreme pain. Dilaudid tablets cause headaches but when the doctor injects it, it works better than morphine for me. After pulmonary embolism it was the only thing I was given in the hospital and it worked very well. I d ... Show Full Comment

    I've been hospitalized several times over the past 5 months due to coltis flare ups and c-diff. The coltis causes cramps as bad as contractions. Every time I go to the ER they start with morphine and I tell them they need to just give me dilaudid...it's the only thing that works. Each time I end up getting admitted and have been given the pump with dilaudid. It's the only thing that h ... Show Full Comment

    I have been suffering with pain related to a herniated disc at L5. The pain was keeping me from walking, sitting, etc. I went to the ER last night and they injected me with 2 1mg doses of Dilauded, which worked perfectly... for 20 minutes. Now I am on the oral version (2mg every 6 hours) and it does nearly nothing for my pain but makes me sleepy and constipated. Norco has worked much better for me ... Show Full Comment

    My doctor had me up to 8 mg every 4-6 hours before the drug even started to take the edge off my pain. It didn't work on nerve pain at a.. I've never abused a drug and I don't understand why these types of drugs (opiates) don't work well for me.

    Comment:
    Back surgery. I had a super rare tumor removed from my spine and my heart at 29. They removed a nerve from my spinal cord, which the tumor was growing from and also removed part of my rib to get the tumor out. This leaving me in so much pain I couldn't tolerate life. For the pain I was on Fentanyl patches, Lyrica, and Dilaudid (as well as others). It's been 2yrs. since the surgery and I am ... Show Full Comment
