User Comments:


For Pain “Takes too long to work… no matter what you eat… Don’t waste your time.”

For Chronic Pain “Not only is this a very expensive medication even with insurance, the 18mg capsule twice a day does not help my pain one bit. What is does help me to have are abnormal, very real, and terrifying nightmares that leave me howling for help in the middle of the night, or yelling myself awake if I lie down for a nap. As someone else mentioned, these dreams are hard to wake up from on your own. Nightmares like half man, half beasts after me, a boat ride spinning out of control down an abyss, inanimate bizarre objects coming to life and after me, odd places I’ve visited before but haven’t. I cannot deal with this, not at all, and I will not take anymore of these. At this point I would rather deal with chronic pain, than chronic nightmares and losing sleep. Acupuncture may be my next step since positively nothing medical has helped one iota. More meds have worse side effects, and cheap generics do nothing. So now what. I give up.”

For Chronic Pain “Medication takes 3-4 hours to work no matter what you eat while taking it. When and if it starts to help with the pain, it stops in 3 or 4 hours. Sometimes it comes on so strong that I have a panic attack. I figured I would adjust to it, but after a month I have not.”

For Chronic Pain “I have been on pain meds since Oct, 2007. Just started Xtrampza ER and it takes 4 hours to work then it hit’s hard, break into a bad sweat and in 3.5 to 4 hours it stops working. This should be taken off the market.”

For Chronic Pain “I suffer from severe, chronic back, neck and shoulder pain. This is one of the worst medications I’ve ever taken. The nausea and dizziness is awful. If that were the only negative side effect, I think I could live with it though.What I found extremely disturbing was the psychological effects. After only two doses, I had terrifying nightmares that were difficult to awaken from. I, uncharacteristically, felt like Alice in Wonderland in an extremely unpleasant manner while I was awake. I can’t believe this medication is on the market. Not to mention, it did absolutely nothing to help with pain.”

For Chronic Pain “Helping me throughout a spinal injury, don’t know how I’d get out of bed with this meds, since insurance cut most of the opioids off the list”
