your thoughts and experience with dilaudid vs roxicodone
Hello all, hope you all are feeling good. Been taking 2 30mg roxicodone every 4-6 hrs, max 5 total pills a day for about a year. They have become not helpful, so pain dr switched me to 1, 4mg dilaudid every 4 hrs, max 5 pills a day. Based on a pharmceutical conversion of 150mg of oxycodone daily converts to 56.25mg hydromorphone daily. When i mentioned the conversion she said , yes thats correct but dilaudid is faster acting and is stronger so lets start off with this and go from there. Its been a week now of taking 1 a day every 4 hrs and iam not getting the relief like i was hoping too.I understand the conservative approach, but from your personal experience what strength do you think i should be taking?? I always appreciate everybodys input and advice.
