I had hernia surgery on friday, I stopped taking my Dilaudid (I have chronic osteoporosis ) I started back on the Dilaudid because the withdrawal are so bad. How long will it take to stop these withdrawals. What can I do help.
As far as the withdrawals are concerned, IMO several things factor into your question. How long have you been on it? How much are you taking? Also your health and level of activity. I've been on pain meds for the better part of 12 years, though I've never went through Dilaudid withdrawal I've been through OxyContin/oxycodone withdrawals several times and for those, at least for me the acute withdrawal lasted 7-10 days. Hang in there!
