The withdrawal to switch to the morphine
was NOT fun at all, it was done gradually, but as the dose
lowered I became sicker. Now so glad I did it. Improved my constipation and bloating greatly! I switched from Roxycodone to Dilaudid (hydromorphone) for break thru pain, but I take it regularly every 6 hours. After 13 spinal surgeries I am still in pain, can barely walk, and have lost so much weight from pain and depression at 5'1 I weigh I only 95 lbs.
