Dilaudid 8mg twice a day takes care of my pain, bringing it to a much lower level. It is the only pain medication that works for me. In my opinion you are taking way too much and need to consult a pain doctor. Pain doctors are paranoid about dilaudid, failing to realize it does not carry the side effects of other pain meds. I live in Texas and have to battle to maintain my prescription even though it works and allows me to maintain some sort of functional life. Without it, I can do nothing. I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, spinal arthritis, poly neuropathy, two knee replacements within one year on the same knee. Doctors reading this should educate the health system in Texas and physicians there as well, making this more readily available for serious pain patients. Other drugs make us sick and cause liver problems.
Again I do not abuse this drug and follow dosage requirements fully. If you don't it will be impossible for you to maintain as a prescription.
Regards and I hope you can find some relief.

Dilaudid is a narcotic pain reliever also called an opioid. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain. It is habit forming so should be used with caution! Suboxone is given to treat your opioid addiction. You will not be alone so please be patient so that others can respond.

i had an addiction to dilaudid 8's ,oxy contin and morphine of all kinds ,and am currently being treated with methadone. i have been on methadone for about a year and have been clean of narcotics for 6 monthes..BEWARE , if you have an addiction and also have young kids in your care, be careful who you talk to about your problem.. when i tried to get help for my addiction the childrens aid Society got involved and almost destroyed my family !! no questions asked ! they tested me and as soon as they had the proof of what i had already told them what was in my system, they almost put my kids in foster care. it was only thanks to my inlaws for taking us all in that our family remained in one piece ! Talk to someone you trust and always ask what will happen if you have small kids..
