I used to be on dilaudid for migraines. They have subsided after menopause. I have also been suffering from 2 herinated disks, degenerative disk disease, curvature of the spine and severe arthritis. The dilaudid took all migraine pain away... I was just wondering if the exalgo extended release pills are as good as plain old dilaudid..Any answer would be greatly appreciated..Thank you !
Exaglo and Dilaudid have the same active ingredient which is hydromorphone. The only difference is the Exaglo is extended release and the Dilaudid is immediate release so the Exaglo you can take less often and it gives around the clock pain relief that way. So to answer your question, they are the same just different release times. It really is a matter of convenience.
Not really, the main difference is dilaudid is for break through pain and the exalgo is (as u already mentioned) extended release so u don't have to keep going back to the bottle just once and done for the day :)
