    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

    I was prescribed this medication for a brief period of time for persistent nerve pain after a complicated inguinal hernia operation.

This drug works markedly more inefficiently when taken orall ... Show Full 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

    My sister just passed away from her dilaudid addicton, plus whatever else she was taking in her bag of tricks. All her drugs were doctor prescribed. She went to sleep and never woke up. We are still waiting for the toxicology reports from the medical examanier, but it wasn't hard to figure it out. Please be careful to those of you who use prescription drugs. Take them as prescribed, not as you ... Show Full Comment
