Med comparison

Has anyone tried dilaudid? And how would you compare, say 15mg dilaudid to a percocet or oxycontin dose? Similar effects?

Re: Med comparison

Knowing what kind of pain you are trying to relieve would be a big help. Trying to simply just compare one opioid to another w/o reference to the therapy is kinda useless.

What are you taking now?

Re: Med comparison

diluadid is a short acting pain med so oxycontin is much longer lasting. dilaudid is stronger than percocet although I only had dilaudid in a iv after my fusion surgery. I now take percocet for my bt med along with oxycontin, which has worked great for my pain...Sorry I dont know mg. comparison to each med. Good luck ,
