Hello~I'm on oxy 80's and dilaudid 4mgs which are prescribed for back pain. The oxys alone don't help at all. I get dilaudids tomorrow, but will be out of oxys. Does anyone know if the dilaudid alone will help? Thanks

How did it work? Did you get any pain relief?

Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone, which is very potent, but if you've been taking 80mgs of the Oxycodone, then you'd need 30mgs of it to be equivalent for analgesia.

Hey! I sort of figured out the conversion and was taking 30 mg. or more of Dilaudid a day. I continue to be in around the clock pain. I believe I need to take the Oxycontin and Dilaudid in conjunction with one another. Thanks for responding!

10 MGS - 30 of OC.. but every one is different... diluded didn't work on me but oc did very well until it was changed... ER oc for most of my pain relief is awesome.. added with a little diluded for break through does work.... but every one is different and a lot say the first is stronger.. i don't think so but then again ppl are different my dear you have to try it.. but don't push it

The Dilaudid are good for IV use when it comes to ingesting. The Oxycodone is better if you plan just to take orally. Oxycontin is another story all together. Stick with Oxycodone unless you IV your drugs then Dilaudid is best. But you have got to be in pretty bad shape if you have to IV your meds. My doc has me on 6 30's of Oxycodone a day. Its not enough I still have pain issues. What should I do? What at should I ask my doctor? Any suggestions?

Dude, chick whom ever, get on methadone! No withdrawls and is effective on pain! Although coming off methadone you would kill someone, it is so severe, so you have too taper down real slow!

Your long-acting opiate will not give you an "euphoric" feeling like a short-acting opiate will (Dilaudid). The short-acting opiate is exactly that, short-acting and the body/brain will require the next dose within the next 2 - 4 hours and this will have to occur until "It Sleeps" or you sleep and start all over the next day. Most likely you may feel ill because you don't have enough in your system but it won't be complete withdrawal if you are taking the 4mg Dilaudid in place of the OXY. I will caution you that if you substitute your dosages to compensate for the OXY you will run out of the Dilaudid faster. I am just mentioning it. Caution.

Of course it does depend on the strength of each one. A better answer can be given if the dosage is known.

If conventional meds aren't working for you, maybe you need a Medtronic pain pump. They implant this pump, it acts like an epudural and transfers the medication to the main pain site using only 1/300th of a dose of medication. The use one of 3 meds in it; morphine, dialudid, and fentanyl. It worked wonders for my situation. If you live in a rural area the likelihood of you getting this is slim if you don't have access to a large metro area. Go to the Medtronic site and look under pain therapy and see if they have a doctor in your area. Best of Luck!

I will post a reply and say I have no idea. You have a pump like a diabetic has an insulin pump? Never heard of such a thing. Tell me about it. I would like to learn.

Have you tried a mom and pop drug store? Some times they will do it before a chain store will.

First of all the interthecal pain pump was never designed for drugs other than morphine and backdown. A lot of places that had patients on other meds are cutting them back to one of those to stay within the legal guidelines and avoid legal issues.

I had a pump for almost 14 years, maxed out on morphine and was just about to max out on dilaudid when the hospital took the pump program over and announced they were cutting everyone back to approved drugs only. A lot of patients left. I stayed and just had major back surgery and had my pump out cuz I never liked all the side effects it gives you.

I'm going through hell 1 month removed from surgery but found a good doc that understands my pain needs. Right now I'm on 50 fentyl patch every 72 hours 4mg dilaudid every 4 hours orally for pain.

Find a good doc if possible and get fixed whatever your husbands medical problem is as the pump will only mask the pain and make things worse in the long run!
