A 21-year-old female asked:
Can i take dilaudid and percocet together? the dilaudid alone is not working. i have a high tolerance to pain meds due to many chronic illnesses.

Dilaudid /percocet: In my opinion no. Both are short acting and it makes no sense to take two short acting medications together. I would ask why you are not on a long acting baseline medication given your chronic illnesses?
