We have just been swithched to Nucynta 100mg ER (tapentadol) from a Butrans Patch due to increasing skin site reaction. In a continued response to the diagnoses of arthritis, fibromyalgia, and relief of break through upper back pain which a spinal cord stimulator is not fully managing. Thank you for any response.

Welcome! To answer your question, I couldn't tolerate the nucynta due to my severe reaction to the side effects. However, my daughter is prescribed it for her fibro and finds that it provides fairly good pain relief. The trick is to keep a consistent level of it in your blood and not wait for the pain to start before taking it. It's not nearly as effective that way, but then again, most pain relievers aren't in that instance. I certainly hope it provides you with the relief you're seeking.
