What's the best narcotic for breakthrough pain?
I myself use 8mg Dilaudid. But I guess it would depend on what type of pain & what your doctor is willing to write right for you. Oxymorphone(Opana) is very strong & I don't know of anybody who's been prescribed it plus alot of insurance companys don't cover it. But Dilauidid(Hydromorphone) is a keytone of Morphine whatever that is,but I have a neck injury & it works for me. Good luck.
I take roxycodone for my breakthrough pain and it works good, the generic is oxycodone and I take 15mg every four hours as needed. they also have many different strenghths. You should talk to you doctor about it or what other breakthrough meds he would put you on.
Hope this helps...
