My doctor started me on a trial of Nucynta today in place of percocet. Is anyone currently taking this? I looked at some of the older posts but would like to hear anything more recent. If this doesn't work for me then my he wants me get get a spinel stimulator. Please tell me this is a successful drug for the most part and still able to function and be seen in public :S . Thank you I would appreciate any comments


  • I haven't tried Nucynta but found a recent post that may help.
    I hope it helps your pain but they may have to increase the dose if 50mg doesn't work. Have they tried fentanyl? I think I would try that before an SCS but hope this helps you. I'm going to research more of this new medication. Take care. Charry

  • Thanks Charry >:D<
    I need to study up more about all these meds. There are so many to read about and know that this is what I want/need. I really enjoy and appreciate this web site and appriciate all the comments and discussions here. There is a lot to learn about our bodies :O . We get older and think we've seen and heard it all, but there always seems to be that rude awakening. Thanks again
