Recent, I was prescribed dilaudid for chronic rectal abscess and fistula pain. I have learned that they manufacture Dilaudid suppository. Has anyone used the suppository form? Im wondering if it would control the rectal pain better than the oral?
 
Thanks in advance for any answers

  Dear Denoli82,
 
     Good morning. I hope are you have a moment or two to rest today. I do not know about the suppository form of Dilaudid. But, if I were in your shoes, I would leave a quick voice mail to the doctor. Or maybe just an email to him so he can send a quick response when he gets a chance.
 
     I hope you have a nice afternoon.

I used the Dilaudid suppositories once when I had a kidney stone and couldn't stop vomiting. In my opinion they work better than the pills. They also work faster. I can't say whether they will work specifically better on the rectal pain but as it works better overall it should.

Good Luck!

Just because you feel you might be in over your head, doesn't mean it has to be a disagreeable feeling. You may just live up to the moment.

Wow have not been on for a very long time but popped in and saw your ? Alot of folks do seem to think the suppos. work better and they have been around a very long time. We use them alot in the nursing home where getting those folks to swallow meds are difficult or maybe impossible due to medical conditions. The do however get into your system faster and are absorbed quicker therefore work faster to alleviate the pain as for possible working on contact given your DX I would say that might be a given and to your advantage although burning on contact may be a problem. Hope some of this helps and I agree that talking to your Doc may give you some better insight.
