Customer Question
I had alcohol at...

I had alcohol at 10pm last night, I want to start taking my dilauid again today beacause of back and leg pain from my surgery. I do not plan on having anymore alcohol. Is it okay to start taking my dilauaid again?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The nerves are taking a long time to heal and I think I am just doing too much and the pain is back after the surgery.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My doctor knows everything. I have asthma and COPD and take a maintance medicine everyday and they are both under control. I am just wondering about taking my pain meds again after cocktails last night.

Hi! Yes, it is safe to take your Dilaudid at this point. The alcohol has been metabolized so there is no risk of interactions with Dilaudid today.

Do you have any further concerns? I am happy to help:)

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
