    Dr switched me from Embeda to Hysingla. Within 48 hrs I started having really high BP & almost all the other symptons of withdrawal. Pain Dr says I DONT have withdrawal by just switching-well what does he know?? He's not the one writhing in pain for 4 or 5 days & then tells me he can see me in 48 hours-absolutely ridiculous

Takes about 10 hrs. to kick in and doesn't help pain at all just makes you feel weird and miserable! I dissolved one in water to see how long it took to dissolve and it was around 9 to 10 hours, it swelled to the size of a .5" thick nickel. The consistency of it ... Show Full Comment

    Totally unreliable for pain relief - Had to use just as many IR breakthrough meds as before ; Unpredictable in it's action - caused me to pass out in the middle of the day the day AFTER taking it, which is dangerous if I'm driving when it does finally "kick in" ; Extremely difficult to swallow, as well. Very costly: $500 for a month's supply...all of it adds up to a completel ... Show Full Comment
