I have Crohn's Disease (in my small intestine) and this is the only pain medication that I have found that I can use when it flares up. The main problem I do have is that when it flares up I have a lot of nausea and vomiting and sometimes minor diarrhea (GI doc calls it atypical Crohns). I can usually catch it right even when I do have the diarrhea with it and have the whole suppository dissolve...

I have Crohn's Disease (in my small intestine) and this is the only pain medication that I have found that I can use when it flares up. The main problem I do have is that when it flares up I have a lot of nausea and vomiting and sometimes minor diarrhea (GI doc calls it atypical Crohns). I can usually catch it right even when I do have the diarrhea with it and have the whole suppository dissolve. Anything oral usually comes right back up. For me Dilaudid suppositories have been a life saver because before I would just end up in the ER because I would be in so much pain I would be up for 24 hours or more straight before I would finally break down and go to the ER.

I have tried several different medications to ese the pain of my cancer treatment and none had worked until I tried dilaudid. Not for everyday aches and pains but if you are suffering from serious long lasting pain this works great. A few side effects but nothing over bering. Well worth the effort.
