Re: Long acting dilaudid

i went thru similar situation with OPANA ER-i was change from oxycontin to the opana er-and it was terrible-opana er is suppose to be twice as strong as the oxycontin- so dr adjusted dose accordingly-i got 00000 relief-was told later that opana(oxymorphone)when taken by tablet orally has much lower bioavailability than oxcodone(oxycontin in my case)so when i went from oxycontin to opana i experienced WD-i was so surprised and dint realize thats what it was at first-i thought like you with your exalgo-that maybe i just need to take it and give it a chance to build in m y system-big mistake and i suffered terribly as a result-pain built so high i thought i may have a stroke or heart attack-no kidding-i hadnt remembered pain getting that bad in long time
