I was given daluidid ( Hydromrophone) in the ER twice for sever breakthrough pain. Once in a shot and once in pill form. It worked wonders and completely got rid of the pain and spasms long enough for me to get some sleep. It even relaxed the muscles enough I was able to get the L5 vertabra to move off the sciatic nerve.
My doctor has told me that this drug can only be given in the hospital. I am curious as to if anyone else has heard that? It seems a waste to have to go to the ER everytime you have a flare up when a one time dose presription would save everyone a lot of trouble.
