 1  Chronic pain - IC and Endometriosis WOW! Have had to try lots of narcotics, etc. and this one takes the cake. Started off first night with hallucinations in bed and grabbed onto my husband. Woke up extremely depressed out of no where in morning and hung over. Took another morning dose and suicidal ideation came on. Zombie, zoning out, no motivation, blood pressure dropped to not being able to get up. Icing on the cake? A psychotic break from reality that I only have a history of happening ONCE after PTSD from long hospital stay in combination with one other drug. I hate posting, in part because if this drug helps others I don't want to scare or sway you from trying it. Just be cautious and be with a loved one the first time to see how it effects you. Seems split down the middle 50/50. Love it or hate it. Just wanted to tell my story so if same happens to you, you know you aren't "crazy". F 29 3 days

 1  Severe muscle cramps Within 30 minutes it took effect. I had severe dizziness and it increased the muscle cramps that would come in jolts of excruciating stabbing pains. It soon gave me severe hallucinations of bugs crawling everywhere and creatures on floor grabbing at me and shadowy figures watching me. Whenever the pain would subside and my breathing would calm down I'd see something that wasn't there and I'd get so scared I'd have a panic attack and I couldn't close my eyes because then the room would spin.

 4  Degenerative disc disease Nausea/ Vomiting Flushed skin Overheating Despite the side effects this medication has helped a lot. I take it every 6 hours as needed. I noticed it only lasts me 4 hours but I was able to come off Oxycontin and OXYCODONE to this and I believe its better for my pain. I will be switching to the ER soon. F 38 45 days

 4  Very bad back Night Sweats (Bearable), LOTS of vivid dreams at night, sleepy/dizzy first few days, Feeling a bit off sometimes Overall, I have several problems in my back (Herniated Discs, Degenerative disc disease, Arthrosis, etc.). I found that the medecine doesn't help with the back pain, though it does tone down the other pains related to my condition (pain in legs and hip.) It helps a LOT to sleep at night, I sleep like a bbay even though I have VERY vivid dreams in the morning... Also some night sweats, but hey... At least, I get more than the 2 hours of sleep on an eight hours period I used to get! F 22 3 months

 4  Chronic pain Started takin 75 mg 5 weeks ago 2x a day, first couple days it upset my stomach and i was a lil spacey.after that i could tell that my pain had lessoned some but after 8 to 10 hrs of waitressing i was still in pain. Seen dr. last week, he prescribed 100 mg 4x a day, then i had to wait until yesterday for my pharmacy to get it in, due to the fact that its new. so this is day two of the higher dosage, and i..feel wonderful. I have never been treated for my chronic pain, and Ive hurt for yrs. dont like meds, remember my grandmother taking so many, and i have avoided drs for yrs. so after yrs of not having a family dr. i finally broke down due to high blood pressure and go see dr. He has promised to make me a new woman..other then the availability of it at my local pharmacy (which is now taken care of) and the 5 days that i had to go without it (cause my pain seemed twice as bad)..i have no complaints. its working for me F 42 60 days

 4  Pain Management for Back/Feet Slight dizziness and euphoria; otherwise, no side effects for me. I love this medication. It didn't take the pain away 100%, but it did a much better job than Norco or Percocet. I take this every 4 hours throughout the day with 5 mg Percocet as needed for any severe breakthrough pain. It's fantastic. I waited a day before driving on it, but now I can function fully on it with no problems. I would recommend this in place of Norco or Vicodin for long term relief. F 40 2 weeks

 1  Hip and leg pain I took one tablet at night & my heart was racing & I was dizzy. After @2 hours I felt better. I took another tablet the next night and I started vomiting then when I stood up I got very dizzy. My heart started racing so hard it felt like knocking & all I could think is this stuff is going to kill me. I had to wake up my husband and have him sit with me in case I needed to go to the hospital. After about 3 hours of cold sweats, dizzy, blurred vision and my limbs felt so heavy, I finally fell asleep. I will never take this again! I understand we all react in different ways to medication, but I prefer percocet over this. F 30 2 days

 5  Interarticularis Pars Defect (LBP) Occasional Constipation. Sometimes euphoria (But I think that is more from being happy that I can actually function without pain for a while) Works great for me. I'm actually taking a 100mg ER in the morning and then 2 75mg for breakthrough pain. Some days I don't take the full dosage if not needed so they are not very addictive in my book. I've been prescribed Talwin and Tramadol in the past. Nucynta has worked the best for me. M 39 1.5 years

 5  Chronic Pain, Deep Muscle Tissue A speedy effect is noticed. Every time I took it in the beginning I noticed my heart rate increased. Sometimes I slight headache if I hadn't already taken my NSAID. Great pain relief. For myofascial pain it is better than methadone, vicoden, tramadol or dilaudid. I took this on top of methadone 25mg/day. I like it so much that this week I plan to start switching from methadone to Nucynta ER. M 19 1 years
