Comment:
Use of Dilaudid has been to help control pain that my pain pump does not. Morphine pump and 7 back operations have left me unable to work, and many times isolate myself from contact with any one but my wife. It has taken a long and painful journey to get what relief I now have. Although pain is constant, 4mg. of Dilaudid 8 times a day has helped a lot. Naturally, I did the best medical decis ...

I was injured in Iraq due to an IED and was burned in over 84% of my body. Im 24 yrs old and never used any illegal drugs before. I didnt even take Tylenol for headaches. I just drank water and went for a run. So my body has always been pretty clean. Since my injury, Ive used pretty much every pain medication in the book with less than a handful that have actually worked but none of them have reli ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on Actiq 800 mcg 4/day and Duragesic 100 mcg/hour for about six months for chronic/migraine headaches with little relief. My insurance company decided they didn't want to pay the $1600/month bill for the Actiq so my pain doctor switched me to Dilaudid 8 mg every 4-6 hours and suddenly my pain level went from 7 down to about 2. My pain doctor died and it took me over a year to find anothe ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this medication for a brief period of time for persistent nerve pain after a complicated inguinal hernia operation. It did not have the effectiveness of when I was given it intravenously in the hospital (obviously), and I think I was given a low dose for my body size and my natural tendency to be tolerant to narcotics. This drug works markedly more inefficiently when taken orall ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have avn in left hip and ruptured disc at L5-S1 and L4-L5. It seems like different medications work at different times so I have to rotate them. If you get a doctor that is a pain doctor, you will have more success. The meds that have helped me have been Tylox, Dilaudid, Fentanyl Patch, and even Vicodin helped at times. The two strongest are Dilaudid and Fentanyl. Dilaudid is actually many times ... Show Full Comment
