Discussions that mention dilaudid

Pain Management board


My PM doctor is interested in switching me from 40mg Oxycontin every 12 hours to either Morphine, or Methadone. I have been reading up on both medications, but am interested in hearing what others may have learned from experience with either, or both, of the medications. I have chronic abdominal pain brought about by a greatly delayed diagnosis of Hypo-Pituitary Adrenal Insufficiency.

Along with the 40mg Oxy twice a day I also take 1-2 8mg Dilaudid pills for BT pain....I am not concerned with the particular dosage of the switch as I am confident that my PM doc is more than competent....I am merely interested in making the best possible decision regarding which medication will be most beneficial. Thank you in advance for any responses!
