Dilaudid is very cheap and effective for my disease. I was on Hydromorphone, but within two weeks I admitted to the hospital by severe stomach pain. Hydromorphone was not at all good for the stomach muscle spasms of mine, so I stopped using it. I used MS Contin, pills of 60 mg two times in a day. I noticed that this amount is equivalent to 12 or 16 mg of Hydromorphone in every consecutive hour. I said about this fact to my doctor to move to Dilaudid from MS Contin. Contin was so expensive for me, without any health insurance policy. My body became tolerant to it after the use of a long period. I heard about this medicine from my friends and I started to use it. It is very effective on me and it did not make me feel unlike the previous medicine I used. I used to pay $10.00 for each tablet of MS Contin, even with the coverage of my insurance policy. I love to rate Dilaudid for every one who have been suffering from severe pain. Common man can afford this medicine without any difficulty and it is number one for giving positive results for me. It helped me to reduce the symptoms from other diseases also.
