I currently am taking M.S Contin (a sustained release morphine pain medication) there are times when my pain breaks through and my Dr has me on oxycodone immediate release. unfortunately I find the oxycodone wreaks havok on my moods. I am desiring to switch to a different breakthrough medication perhaps of a different chemical makeup, also one that is covered by medi-cal. I have been researching and was steered to Dilaudid (oxymorphone). My question is, will this work as oxycode has as an immediate release pain medication ?? Are there any others here who use it as such ?? It is so odd that I tolerate the morphine but have such mood problems with the oxycodone. Thanks in advance everyone.
peace and blessings
