I have been taking dillaudid 4mg for about 2 years now. Usually around 8 per day. I tried every med under the sun and so many are not cracked up to be the savor I have heard before I started them. As for the 10mg dose is very low(for me and it seems for almost everyone seems to have high tolerances on H.W) from having CP for so long. The low dose did'nt do much for me, so like most, my CP doctor increased until I had better relief. I was at 60mg 2x daily with BT. The only problem for me was as the dose increased the more I felt sick from it. Dizzy and felt like throwing up. I always thought that maybe the dose was too high or I just did'nt agree with the med when it was at the point of working. Unfortunately opana was the same and now the last long lasting med my pain doc can think of is methadone, but from the replied posts I have recieved I dont think it sounds to good.
Hopefully you can get some relief and remember the lowest effective dose is definatly the best answer. Also if you are at the begining stages of opioids, remember they all are just a little different so hopefully you will find one that helps you along your way.
