Its not common to be on 2 fast acting meds, but a long acting and then a fast acting for breakthru. In the hospital setting, this would be common, with one being for more severe pain then the other. Are you seeing a pain management doc. Usually using fast acting meds like that isn't how chronic pain is treated.

Ok, so ur dr has been prescribing u both of these meds and now he wants to take u off dilaudid?? Did I read that right?? If so, u need to tell him tht u need ur dilaudid's back cuz its not workin at all with jus the oxy's. I'm sure he'll either put u back on it or find something else? Wow I haven't heard of dilaudid's in a long time. If you go to the dr let me know what happens,k?

If you take more than you should, you may jeopardize your relationship with your Dr. If he/she discontinued the long acting med there must be a reason. I would have you ask the Doc why this was done, or maybe you already know? This is a very good breakthrough med, it's the long acting base you may need. Hope this helps.

Yes,7yrs ago I fell this of course was after several car accidents& hurting my back at work. Anyway ive never been much for aspirin or even lortabs/vicodins&percocets.Those meds just never did anything for me. I have osteoarthritis,cervical stenosis,spondylitic stenosis,pinched nerves,fibromyalgia,sciatica,three herniated disks in my lower back and buldgingvin my cervical&thoracic. I went in and was wrote for k4dilaudids &30mg oxycodone. I have since been upped in my qtys. Its been 7yrs that ive been taking these.I used to get 90 xanax bars but now they cant write for benzos. I get 150 k4s & 90-120 30 mg oxycodones. And ill tell you my tolerance is up there I wish i could get more!

I was on oxycontin and had a second medication added for break thru pain. It took a few tries to find what worked for me. I tried oxy fast, oxy ir, diladuid, and percoset. I found that the diladuid worked best for me. The acetametophine in the percoset was affecting my liver so had to change. Everyone is different so be careful as to what you take and be straight up with your Dr. That being said my Dr said only one med for break thru pain. Good luck with your decision.
