EMBEDA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Chronic Pain “I was hesitant about being so direct until I saw nonstopains comment about this medicine needing to be pulled off the market. I SAY GET IT OFF MARKET NOW!! I think this drug is dangerous. Not enough study was done to put proper warnings on it. I have a stomach condition that causes me to digest food very slowly, there are no warnings for embeda that this may cause problems! I lost over 20lbs in less than 6 weeks, I was so nauseous could not even look at food! My doctor said either embeda or nothing so I stuck it out for a few months and finally I had lost so much weight and was so very sick all the time the only way I can think to describe it is I would opt for the terrible pain I have over how I feel when on embeda. DON’T TAKE EMBEDA!!”

For Chronic Pain “This drug is horrible!!! Causes severe headaches! Sweating so severe clothes are soaked. Take a shower and you are drier in the water than clothed and sweating using this dangerous drug. It needs to be pulled from the market and I will do my best to see it happen. I have been on 24/7 pain management for 17 years this is by far the worst drug on the market.”

For Chronic Pain “Went in Pain management four years ago, for one bulging disc in my neck and three in my lower back. I’m on Norco 10/325 ×4 for pain. I have Psoriasis, eczema, contact dermititis, psoriatic arthritis, COPD, chronic bronchitis, onset emphysema on oxygen, Bi-Pap I developed Nerve Ending Pain in my neck and upper arm. The Dr. prescribed me Embeda 20mg/0.8mg in the morning I felt good for about 2 hrs. then I fell asleep for 5 hrs this was on the 1st of September. I did use it for 2 day, I stopped for several reasons. Sleeping to much, itching peeling skin, constipated, agitated, no relief from Nerve Pain, Adult disabled daughter, I have to care for. Just doesn’t seem practical, I’ll wait till tomorrow for NET lungs may fill up. I still don’t feel right.”

For Chronic Pain “I have chronic pain for several years and was on three 5mg oxycodone per day for several months. My doctor changed me to Embeda 20mg twice a day. In the beginning I felt nothing. After about 3 days I started to feel better. It works good for chronic pain but I still have a lot of break through pain and it does not help with that. Now my pain management closed immediately and I have to get a new doctor. I really hope my new doctor is as caring as my previous doctor. One problem was this medication is expensive and it took some time to get a prior authorization and I was without medication for a week due to the back and forth between my doctor and my insurance”

For Chronic Pain “I switched from ER morphine 30 mg sulfate to embeda 20 mg ,there are some major problems with this medication ! Recalls are still needed as the first time I took one minimal relief with quick ending ,the next one put me to sleep after I just slept 12 hours from the first one , the next one zero relief ,can’t go through life like this ! The FDA needs to take a serious look at this !”
