I've been in pain management for over 13 years now. I've been on everything and along the way have developed many allergies to things. Codeine and any "codone," Opana, cannot take the fentanyl patch anymore, I can list them all. It comes down to nucynta, dilaudid, morphine.
I've been on nucynta since it came out. I recently tried to ween myself off of it. Didn't work out well. Still not working. I see the pain specialist on Monday on an ASAP basis.
Whatever they tell you? Nucynta? Severe withdrawal after long term use. Depression, shakes, sweats, chills, nausea, vomiting...
I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this?
BTW, I had C5/6, 6/7 fused with donor bone, titanium plate, screws and now above is ruptured to bits C3/4, 4/5(with bone spurs) and below is herniated C7/T1 and T11-L2 compressed/ruptured and L5. Had a shoulder with this accident as well and no bone in it practically with three shoulder surgeries. Waiting on another cervical and shoulder surgery.
