FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: NUCYNTA ER

User Comments:


For Pain “Nucynta is a miracle drug for me. I have a condition that caused defects in almost every vertebrae, rib and more. I’ve been in severe pain all my life and tried almost every pain med on the market with little relief and horrible side effects. I’ve been on Nucynta for five years and nothing else comes close in terms of pain relief. Before Nucynta, I was in bed almost 24/7 and required help dressing, washing etc. Now I can do my own care, and I can go out on good days. The only side effects for me are increased heart rate and short term memory issues when the IR medication “peaks.” I have no GI issues, and I am alert and clearheaded. My dose is 150mg ER 2x a day, and 100mg IR 3x a day and it hasn’t changed in 3 years. I don’t build a tolerance like I did with other opioids. When I first started I got serotonin syndrome, so they took me off of all other seratonin drugs. I haven’t had any issues since, but it is a dangerous reaction so people should know the symptoms.”

For Pain “Best prescription for my pain”

For Pain “I love Nucynta ER. I take different pain meds for different kinds of pain. Nucynta was prescribed when I told my Doctor I couldn’t stand my legs anymore. My legs felt like huge, heavy, painful, petrified stumps. I couldn’t sleep and other pain meds didn’t touch the pain in my legs. Nucynta takes this pain away. And when the pharmacy couldn’t get the medication for a week…..there were NO withdrawal problems…..except the leg pain came back. This year I am afraid – as no one is covering Nucynta ER. I chose a Part D plan that showed online Nucynta ER was covered. But now they are saying it’s not in their new paper formulary. Back to the search….and back to LEG PAIN.”

For Pain “The first dose made me somewhat woozy. However, the next 3-4 was like taking aspirin. USELESS! I am sure that this drug causes diarrhea! Also yesterday morning I had body aches which felt like I had the FLU! It is common to most opioid users to suffer with constipation; however, I take MIRALAX every other day to avoid this problem.”
