Highly Inappropriate: If you are saying that you take Dilaudid without a prescription this is illegal and highly dangerous. You should cease this behavior immediately and see a doctor for your current symptoms. There were 16, 651 deaths from prescription opioids last year. You need to make sure you're not a statistic.

What if the pain you are masking, not curing the cause, is from cancer. You would be delaying treatment, and potentially allowing a simple stage one grow to stage two by delaying appropriate evaluation and simple treatment, which now can be more extensive. Get your own meds.
