... ys post op, while I was in the hospital. I recently had ankle reconstruction, definitely not as involved as your surgery, and I was sent home with oxycodone, and percocet for breakthrough pain. I would talk to the surgeon again and express your concerns. ... (5 replies)
... I've never even heard of a PCA at home. If they are willing to give you a Dilaudid PCA, what about asking if there is any option between Percocet and that? ... (5 replies)

... hr surgery done as an out patient. From everything I read it is a long and painful recovery. I was astonished when they offered a PCA pump with Dilaudid at home after out patient surgery. I'm concerned about the safety, especially with respiratory depression and not being monitored in a hospital setting. ... (5 replies)
... I've had one and there is nothing to it. All they do is get a cheek swab. What the DNA test will do is check how your metabolism is processed, it will either be normal or abnormal. Mine actually turned out to be abnormal, I was the second person in the entire practice that had that result. Then the test will give a list of recommended medication that works more effectively....

... Hi stupid feet, I thought when i read your meds that you were given the morphine long acting & then a mild bt, the oxycodone & a stronger bt the dilaudid. I just wanted to encourage you because it took 5 years to find my perfect combo & we have even dropped the dosage in the last 5 months & it is still working even after 8 years. It surely makes it harder when cost is... (4 replies)
... Conversion wise, 10mg of Oxycodone would be equivalent to about 15mg of Hydrocodone (in Norco), but individual results vary. I would guess its not enough of a difference to put you into withdrawal, especially since it is a small percent of your daily dose with those other two meds, but you'll have to see. Surprised they would switch you down in strength, unless it had... (4 replies)
... I have grown tolerant to the percocet taking it for about 3 years and just wasn't getting the relief I once did. ... (4 replies)
... I don't know of the best generic dilaudid, I just take whatever my pharmacy gives me. I have deen on the 4mg dilaudid, for break though pain over the past 4 months 2 every 4 hrs. I know my insurance will not pay for brand name. The meds work really great. Have been on percs for over 4 years. I needed a change from the percocet 10/325. My systems tolorance had gotten out of...

... onal for that. All these high strength long actings abd short actings didn't exist. The only thing available was MScontin and that was stricltly controlled, 4 mg dilaudid was the most potent oral SA med available. ... (11 replies)
... Hey Kat :wave:, There is no confusion between my PM Doctor and me. Iíve told him everything (in MUCH more personal detail than I have here on the boards) and this is how heís instructed me to take my medication currently. There is no confusion at all. If I donít need it, then I wouldnít take it; however, thatís not the case currently. Weíre trying to figure out where... (11 replies)

... Lindy, *l* I'm an open book. I have a Degenerative Cartiledge Disease and Advanced Osteoarthritis in my knees. I've been doing this since I was 17. have had many, many surgeries, 21 in the last 12 years alone. My left knee was rebuilt in '09 an is mostly screws and metal rods. I'm due for total replacements of both knees but unfortunately I'm only 43....so until I age,... (23 replies)
... Thank you for your insight. I was in the hospital when they switched my medications around from the Dilaudid/Fetynal/Percocet. The PM Dr was willing to give me all that in pill forms so I could go home, but he recommended the other, so I went with his recommendations. I see the PM Dr. on the 22nd, unless there is a cancellation (which I hope.) I had to cancel my apt. this week... (23 replies)
... in. You shouldn't need to be taking your BT med regularly, they're only there for backup on days when the pain is spiking. Give one of the other BT meds a try, Percocet on one of those, they work on different pain centers in the brain, so it tends to help more when you have to take them. ... (23 replies)
... Oxycontin 20mg 2 x daily and Oxy IR 20 mg as needed or every 4-6hrs. I used to be on Dilauded, Fetynal and Percocet, but when I was hospitalized, the pain management doctor thought this might be a better combo. He was willing to do the other, but I told him I would go with whatever he thought was best. I have an appointment Monday, so Iíll see what my Doctor says. ... (23 replies)
... of Dilauded. It is going to be going off market as an out patient pain medication. I'm surprised you have a doc that is still willing to RX it. Have you tried Percocet or something that works on a different receptor....what is your la med? ... (23 replies)
... Break thru meds are short acting meds such as Dilaudid, Vicodin, Percocet, and they are for Break Thru pain, which is exactly what it says it is, pain that gets so bad it breaks thru the coverage that your long acting med provides. Long Acting meds are for managing everyday pain, longer term, usually 12 hours at a time, these are Oxycontin, Morphine, Opana, Methadone. Your... (6 replies)

... Madison, You are right, of course Tylenol is Acetaminophen...Like I said, I am confused:dizzy: The bottle says "Percocet, Tylnol". Thanks for straightening me out. By the way (and I am sure of this), I have been able to cut back on the meds. I am now taking the Endocet every 4 hours and Ultram every 6 hours. My next move is to cut back on the Endocet to 4 times a... (15 replies)
