Congratulations, you apparently are not addicted to opiates nor enjoy them too much. Dilaudid would keep me stoned, with a euphoric feeling.

exalgo
Exalgo is very strong but it takes a few days to get up to full strength in the body. I take 2 oxycodone 10mg every 4 hours but after being prescribed exalgo 16mg I just take one in the morning and I'm good all day. Only need the oxy when break through pain gets tough.
