I have dilaudid 8mg and they are still not taking away my pain. I was in the hospital for c diff (bacteria in the GI tract) and crohns. They were giving it thru my IV and it took about 75% of the pain away- they also tried phentonal (not sure how to spell) and it took away the pain but it made me vomit for 3 days so they went back to the IV treatment, I have been out of the hospt for about a week now and am still in a lot of pain. They have me Percocet 5mg to take one every 6 hours and it didn't take any pain away. A friend gave me the dilaudid 8mg and it kinda helps. Am I not taking it right? I have tried taking it with food and without food. Is it possible to take IV treatment at home? I need help and don't know what to do. Is there any other way to take the meds so they work better? I am not trying to catch a buzz I just want this pain to go away. Any advice?
You had dilaudid iv in the hosp and they sent you home on one Percocet!!! What were they thinking? Oral dilaudid doesn't work quite as well as iv. You shouldn't be taking it at all because it wasn't prescribed for you. See your dr asap and tell him the Percocet doses nothing. I'm so glad I retired, I'm horrified at the lack of pain management people have in this day and age.

I've been taking Dilaudid 8mg for over a year now and my insurance only covers the generic. Usually?
