    I have been taking this drug for 2 weeks now .I just wanted control of my pain.Instead I have the pain controlling me.The worst side effect besides dry mouth seems to be joint and muscle pain.These side effects weren't listed but I didn't have this problem until I started taking it.I will ask to try something different.

    I have loose stool to diarrhea, if miss a dose pain returns and is intense! I have both neuropathy, back inj, body pain from fall, phantom pain from amputation. When all of these combine they exceed the 10/10 pain scale to excruciating pain to where I would not wish upon any creature on this planet....this medication along w/gabapentin help me deal w/this trauma.

    I've been taking Nucynta for a few years now, it works! No side effects or feeling loopy. Just eases the pain and allows me to work and care for my grandson.

I could not sleep, I started having crazy dreams, hallucinations, terrible headache, increased pain and I was a nervous wreck. I went to work the next day and the pain was double ...
