They reduce the sending of pain messages to the brain and reduce feelings of pain. They have slight differences in their side effects, but overall they are quite similar.

Can i take 1mg dilaudid, if I am taking 500 mg lamotrihine, 20mg citalram, estrogen-methlytestos? Want to make sure no reactions to these drugs.
Ok to take: Dilaudid is ok to take with your medications. The bigger question is hopefully you will not be taking it for too long. It is the strongest oral opioid available, roughly 6-8x stronger than morphine. It is typically reserved for acute post surgical pain or moderate to severe pain needs and is not recommended for chronic pain issues unless directed by a trained pain specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Taking cymbalta, lyrica, (pregabalin) dilaudid and oxycontin for avn and peripheral neuropathy any ideas on drug changes or resistances?Thank you in advance.
See neurologist.: I recommend that you have to cut back on the Oxycontin and Dilaudid because they are not just addictive but eventually you need to use more to achieve the degree of pain control you have. The Cymbalta and Lyrica (pregabalin) have been used a lot for chronic pain which is also experienced in pn. I would suggest that you consider other pain control besides the opiates for a long term basis through a pain clinic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
