Comment:
After an emergency surgery for intestinal obstruction, I had a good 3 week stay in hospital. When I was finally sent home I was given 1mg/4x/day of Dilaudid. It worked well for me, I have no nausea (i take it with food or glass of milk), I function normal on my everyday tasks. Until now, after being on this drug for almost 3 months, I have been trying to whine off the medication and it has been ha ... Show Full Comment

I am so thankful for this medication! I have severe chronic pelvic pain. I have been in and out of the hospital on numerous occasions for pain control.

Comment:
Due to several different medical problems including fibromyalgia and dermatomyositis, I have been on several different narcotics in the last 10 years.
