    I had written a prior eval under the name Dan Irish on 8-13-13. I guess this is my follow up eval of what happened to me with use of Nucynta. It caused a horrific physical dependency on me that my surgeon had to wean me off by lessening the dose from 150mg, to 75 to 50 to 25 to zero. It took me two and a half months to completely wean off. Within a week of being off Nucynta I began to feel like ... Show Full Comment

    I personally think Nucynta (tapentadol Hcl)has more side effect-to-benefit ratio than does other pain killers. I'd consider morphine as having less side effects, but that's just my opinion. Nucynta does have a rapid onset, the pain relief is 'somewhat' noticeable, but not quite enough relief for a (categorized) strong painkiller. The side effects are as unsual as the drug itself: f ...

    I started on Nucynta back in January 2013 and so far it is the best (and only) pain medicine I can take. I was on hydrocodone 7.5 then switched to Norco 10's and all made me sick to my stomach and did not effectively treat pain as I have arthritis in my lower spine. Nucynta does have its cons though.

    I started taking Nuycynta 75 mg for break through pain approximately one year ago. I have Fibromyalgia fairly bad and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I also take Nuycynta ER. This drug is wonderful since it doesn't make me nauseated and sweaty like other narcotic pain killers. I don't even realize I'm on a drug when I take Nucynta because there are no side effects. When I didn't have insu ... Show Full Comment
