Long acting dilaudid

Hey, here in Canada we do have a long acting form of dilaudid called HydromorphContin it comes in strengths of 3 mg, 6 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg, 24 mg, and 30 mg capsules. It is taken every 12hrs. I alot of people find that like Oxycontin, and Mscontin that taken 3 times daily has much better coverage for their pain relief than the marketed wice daily, but everybody is different with their pain and some find the twice daily fine, others may need the every 8 hrs dosing. In the Usa their is a new drug it is 24hr dosing and it is a long acting version of Dilaudid as well called Jurnista. Not sure how well it works it is so new, have not heard anything about it yet.
