Exalgo contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone in a time released formulation. This is a very s may potent narcotic.

Side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

That said, your post is very hard to understand, especially in all capitals.

I will gladly help with any information I can, however, I first need to understand what you are asking.

Can you please make a more comprehensive post? Leave out the caps and use proper sentences?

sorry I have never got on the computer and chatted before. NEW TO ME SINCE i AM IN CRHONIC PAIN and THIS is what I found There is a protocal for Dr.s ect. I'm just wondering if they are doing it yet, and wether it works since the dose comes in much higher in other countries. A version was legal here before in the 60's. Man you are tough. Believe me I do not want to be looking but I do need to be informed on whatever I can be before I go back to my Dr. I took the 80mg for 16 yr's and morphine I have tried not this kinda dose though. I can,t tolerate the new op,s theey are making me sick. Sorry my post was so laymen for you I couldn't even fiend it till now. Hope I'm good enough to be on computer. Have you seen some of the idiots. It was not an english test just curious about is it being used yet and would it be effective. It definitely was not suboxone and I hope my question and grammer is good enough to meet whatever it is you need.

verwon I POSTED AND i FOUND EVERYTHING YOU HAD AND MORE SINCE IT'S BEEN COUPLE OF DAYS sorry for the caps lock are you ocd or something The Dr's have to read the insert to you, as well as the pharmacy giving it to you the first time and the distributers are involved as well. I just wondered now that is legal and the criteria is set is this a common thing and is it being used and if so is it as strong as the oxymorphone or not That is the one thing I took for awhile that didn't give me side effects. It just did not work as well. Nobody wants to be in the kind of pain I am in. I was in a major reck and it messed up my spine,then when I did the cat scans and all the tests turns out i was missing about 3/4 bone t-7 and it messed up those discs and you can not imagine 16 years later .Have a little compasion for people.

I have been taking it for about a month or so (Exalgo). I am not impressed with it at all. I do not suggest you start taking it. I was on 40mg of oxycontin and it worked better than this.

I take 20 mg twice a day of Exalgo ,morn and nite for neuropathy.
Also percocet for breakthru pain 5-6 times a day.
There is some relief though I cannot forget the breakthru meds or I get very sick from the pain.
No appetite. Very unpredictable.
Any ideas.
Thanks

I started Exalgo a month ago. Before that I was on 12/7.5 Norcos per day. Worried about the liver toxicity. I now take a few hydrocodones for breakthrough pain. I am taking 2 8mg pills per day. They have done pretty well at managing my pain, but I do need the breakthrough meds as well. This is not a drug to get high on - won't happen. VERY dangerous to crush and ingest in any other way but orally. I'm pretty happy with it so far, but it's not a drug for an addict.

I have been on Exalgo ER for over two years and it is working wonderful for me. I started taking 16 mg two times a day and now My dose was increased to 24 mg two times a day. I also take 2 mg of dilaudid up to four times a day for breakthrough pain. I usually don't need but 2 per day. I love these two medications because they are the only ones I have found to NOT make me feel high or out-of-control or unable to function like a normal person who is not on any medications. If I work around the house or go grocery shopping then or do a lot of moving around then I do have to take my full dose of dilaudid prescribed for me because I would be in excruciating pain. After three operations I have very little hope of feeling better. By that time all of the scar tissue and nerve damage is doing worse than what the actual operation fixed. Good luck all!
