It took about 3 days for me to start feeling better but this works for me. My only issue is that I can feel it wearing off about 2 hours before my next dose (I take it twice daily), I suppose that is what the IR 's are for. But overall, it works.

Very good med! Not an instant result but starts working effectively second day of continued therapy! Surprised at result as have been on Opana ER, Demerol & everything else. Very expensive though!

I just began taking this medication about a week ago. Last month I was switched from Percocet 10/325mg to Dilaudid 2mg as the Percocet seemed to not be working for me anymore. Either that or my pain had progressed and gotten worse. (I have a few herniated discs in the my lower back) I felt like the Dilaudid helped but was very short-lived. So, I asked my doctor about switching to something extended release. I never heard of this medication, but honestly in just a week and I am on the lowest dose of 8mg- I feel like a different person. I can function again more than I have been able to in almost 7 months of living with this chronic pain. I feel like I am alive again! Very happy with this! (except yes it is expensive!)

Was using Fentanyl patches but they caused me excessive sweating, so got switched to this. Despite having had a gastric bypass which should have rendered this ineffective for me, my doctor has me take it twice a day instead of once, and it's the best pain medicine I've ever had. It started working within an hour, and I love it. Even been on Percocet, which I hated and didn't do anything at all for me, and Butrans, which made me suicidal, and a bunch of others. This ones the tops!

I've been under pain management since 2007 and was on 30 MG of morphine sulfate ER 3 x per day supplemented with 15MG of Percocet 4 x a day. After a couple of years of this regime I changed my pain management doctor and he suggested going to Exalgo. I began taking 2 x 12 MG Exalgo every mornings. It took about a week or 10 days to begin acting. Exalgo is better than the morphine BUT, the 60 pills I need each month, after my insurance pays, is really expensive.

I have had pain issues for many years and after many failed surgeries I still have severe pain. I have been on Percocet but a new doctor wanted me to try Exalgo so I did after fighting with my insurance company to help me cover some of the cost I tried it and got no relief at all! Then I had a hard time getting the doctor to switch me back to Percocet.

I was prescribed Exalgo by my physician about 3 weeks ago. I've been a long term pain management patient, and we decided to make a change. I had been taking Avinza. I am not certain that the mgs are equal, but the Exalgo doesn't come close to helping as much as the Avinza. I take as directed, each medicine is to be taken before bedtime, and since I have switched to Exalgo, there have been many sleepless nights. Maybe the dosage is not enough. This will be discussed with my physician.
