I am under prescription for Dilaudid, and take 4-6 mg. as needed.
I've been taking this medication for several years, taking occasional "drug holidays" to prevent dependency. I find that it now takes up to one hour before I get any relief from my chronic (fibromyalgia) pain. Is it safe, beneficial, or dangerous to try and crush the pills for faster effect? I have NO side effects from this medication and would be happy to reduce the dosage to 2-4 mg as needed, if crushing the pills would help.
Also, are there any other medications that would help to increase the sensitivity of the opioid receptors (safely, of course!)?
