If you feel comfortable answering why you take it, how much and what it does for you that would be great... I have two herniated disks between L2 and L4 as well as a slipped disk, not to mention sciatica on my right side. I've been taking 8mg. 5 to 6 times daily of Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) for a year now after being hit by a drunk driver. Any answers, comments, and/or suggestions are appreciated... Thx
