A good friend of mine can't afford Oxycontin, even with her insurance ( Humana ), so I'm trying to help her get something comparable to it that she may be able to afford ( Dilaudid ? ). She has degenerative disc disease and Oxycontin works VERY well with her pain. She has to sit with a heating pad on her back 99.5% of the time, she can't stand for too long and she can't walk that good or for long as well. Please, anyone, can you help me to help her? Thank you so very much!!!

I do not know of a timed release Dilaudid but I have put down a name of a program that you can contact to see if they can help you out some they have helped me with meds in the past. Hope this hels your friend, marjorie zych
