Just wanted to share my experience with this drug.
After reaching my limit with the ESI's for the year and no results with any of the muscle relaxers my PM decided to try Nucynta with me.
I am allergic to Hydro and percs so I am limited on pain meds.
Anyway I have been on this since Wed and I have to tell you that I am having great results.
It has calmed the nerve pain down by 70%, I have no muscle spasms for the first time in 6 months and my back pain is much better.
I was never expecting this to cover so many areas of pain.
I have had some side effects
Itching.. almost gone now
A little shakey
Crazy dreams and my appetite has dropped.
None of these are severe enough to stop the med since it is working so well.
God only knows what the long term effects will be but for now I am very pleased and only have to take one med for all my symptoms.
