I think everyone is different and it just depends on what works well for you. I actually prefer the morphine. I think it works better. Dilaudid is ok. I guess they are comparable but I think the morphine works just a little better for me. Dilaudid is stronger mg for mg. It also depends on whether you are talking IV compared to taking by mouth. By IV, I think the Dilaudid is better. By mouth I think the morphine works a little better. You can get a hundred different opinions though.
Dzoobaby is right IV is naturally faster, you (as a patient) have to be careful you can really be medicated with it and from my experience of many years I believe (at least for me) Dilaudid works better (seems to hit the receptor site in my brain and is more effective for me than morphine, the drawback for some may be that my CVS pharmacist informs me that it only comes in short acting form, but for the relief I recieve I can take it every 3 hours when most people need a every 4 hour dose (on short acting)
