I started taking Dilaudid a couple months ago for a condition called Constracondiritis, which is an inflammation of the cartlidge inbetween your ribs, the condition caused intense pain and extreme shortness of breath. The medication works great but don't get caught having to "withdrawl" from it. I live in NY and most of it was prescribed by the ER. I became a patient of a pain clinic who would not prescribe it any longer and the victim of a primary care doctor who also would not prescribe because I was at the pain clinic. Thus, no one wanted to take responsibility for wheening me off of it. So last friday am was my last dose and I spent the weekend going through hell!!! All the withdrawl symptoms and then some. It's Tues. and I am just starting to feel a little normal- have to keep eating and drinking water in order to not feel completely sick. While this medication may be very effective, I do not recommend it to anyone who's providers are irresponsible,to say the least. I hope in a couple more days I am back to myself-will not take narcotics again. As for my chest pain, I am left to deal with that on my own as well. Wonderful medical system here in Northern NY.

I have Multiple myeloma which is CANCER of the Bone Marrow. I have lesions in my bones with some holes through my hip bone. Been on 8mg of Dilaudid every 4 to 6 hours with excellent results. Have a high tolerance to pain medication so taking this dosage works well for me. The only issue I have with this drug is occasional constipation which is relieved by taking a stool softener. Don't know what I would do without it since the pain levels from this disease are terrible.

I have been using this medicine since I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which is chronic pain. I have had no symptoms and it is the only paid med that works for my pain. I do not abuse it. I feel that those that do abuse it ruin for the rest of the people who are honest about their pain. To the reviewer who lost her sister to Dilaudid, you should not be angry at her. You make is sound like you hate her and do not miss her because she overdosed.
