I have tried, Percocet, Lortab, all did nothing. The only thing that helped me was Oxycodone 30mg 4x day. My pain was about 90% gone and I could do things, as if I had a life. But that put me in a bad mood. My family didn't want to be around me, so I stopped and that's when the pain management doctor started with the dilaudid.
My PM doctor has prescribed me Dilaudid 4mg 4x day. Did absolutely nothing at all. Went back and he gave me Dilaudid 8mg 3x day. Guess what still does nothing.
Right now you can say we are "experimenting" with the medication to see what works, and what doesn't.
I know that probably none of you are doctors, and even if you were you would need to see me in person along with all my medical records.
What I am going to ask is based on your opinion, experience, and what your doctors have told you or you heard, etc.. I will not hold anyone to it I'm just trying to gather information.
Being that some of the strongest drugs out there do nothing to me ( besides oxycodone ) Does it seem that I am opiate tolerant?
I have read people who take Dilaudid pills some they do nothing at all to, like me. They get a prescription for dilaudid-hp, which is a liquid which you inject, and the injection works great.
Has anyone ever tried this? Why would injecting it work better then a pill?
My doctor told me that if the shots in my neck and lower back don't work that my only option would be surgery. I'm in no hurry for surgery, I'm going to be going to college, and trying to make a life.
All I want is some pain relief from the time I wake up until I go to sleep I have pain.
I will greatly appreciate any information, experience, etc. That anyone can offer me.
