Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I was administered Nubain during my labor. It made me feel extremely drunk and out of control. I remember feeling intense pain, but not really caring. The whole experience is hazy to me, which is really depressing as I looked forward to giving birth. Also, after being administered the Nubain, my labor became precipitous (I went from 3cm to 10cm in under 2 hours - not sure if this is related to the Nubain though) I would rather go drug-free than to use this again for the birth of my next baby.

nalbuphine for Pain: I have severe joint pain (jaw, fingers, shoulders, elbows, knees) due to an autoimmune disease and Nalbuphine saved my quality of life. I took it as needed for pain almost daily for five years without any side effects and without ever having to increase the dose. Got a new insurance that wouldn't cover this medication and within six months I was on disability (vacillating between chronic pain and "opiate stupor"). I am fighting to get this approved again, so I can rejoin life and resume the career I loved.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I have chronic cervical stenosis & degenerative joint disease. All the opiates (Vicodin, Percocet, etc.) make me dizzy with unfavorable reactions. I have been on Nubain for over 2 years & never had to increase the dose. I can now be fully productive at work, it does not make me dizzy & has has no addictive feelings.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I went to the ER for severe back pain and they usually gave me Dilaudid but this time they gave me Nubain and it worked for the first fifteen minutes and the pain was right back.

nalbuphine for Pain: I have been using nalbuphine for a year and a half now. I use it for migraines. I have a headache everyday and I take anywhere from 1 to 3 shots a day. This is the only thing that helps. My doctor tried me on everything. I have a problem with my pharmacy. When I go to get my medicine they treat me like I'm an addict and are very rude to me. It really bothers me. I am an E.M.T. and have been for 13 years now. I recently lost my job due to being on nalbuphine. We had a new woman hired in the office and she didn't like the idea of me taking shots so they let me go. My medicines never got in the way of my job. I am a good E.M.T. I have been given several awards for doing a great job.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I have been taking Nubain 2x a day for 11 years without ever needing to increase my dosage except for during hospital stays. I take it IV with Phenergan and it has allowed me to work a job AND enjoy watching my children throughout their recreational activities. Before Nubain I pretty much remained on the couch.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I recently received an injection of nalbuphine in a walk-in/non-life threatening ER for a cluster headache that had spiked to a 10 on the pain scale and it was an absolute revelation to me. With negligible side effects, it worked as well (10 to 6 on pain scale) as 4 times the typical IV injection of Dilaudid (so 4mg or about 16-24mg oral/60-80mg of oral morphine/100-150mcg of transdermal fentanyl/150-200mg of oral Demerol) without making me high or nod out. This was the first partial agonist (like buprenorphine) that actually helped severe pain.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I've found that it works great for my headaches. I take it with Phenergan for nausea. Works really good for me.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I was admitted to the hospital with a severe headache and stiff neck. I was given Demerol on one occasion it didn't really help, And upon my next visit for the same headache 3 and a half weeks later I was given Tordol for my pain and Zofran for nausea...It sure didn't help. So I was put into a room where I asked for some pain medication and the nurse told me I could get Nubain for my pain. I had never had it before to the best of my knowledge..But get this.. The doctor that admitted me saw in my chart that I had taken Methadone in the past..He asked me DO YOU STILL TAKE METHADONE?? I SAID YES EVERY DAY. The nurse gave me the Nubain and I had instant withdrawals. One week later I'm still sick with a headache.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I was laboring with Pitocin, and I couldn't get an epidural, I had a shot of Nubain in my IV and only worked for 2 minutes (literally) and I was back to feeling the full brunt of my off the chart contractions, in fact they seemed worse. For my next baby I will just labor naturally and not even try the Nubain.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: 27 hours after my water broke and being induced for labor the doctor added Nubain to my IV. It was certainly effective in the way that it completely knocked me out. All I remember was getting dizzy, seeing stars and then blacking out. It was a very uncomfortable feeling almost like my consciousness was gone. When I woke up I had no feeling for how much time had passed whether the baby was already born by c-section or not. The drug certainly did kill the labor pain but for me it was too powerful with too many side effects.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: The Doctor gave me Nubain when I was in labor with my second child. It worked so good I slept through contractions that were off the chart. I had a pain free labor thanks to Nubain.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I was in the emergency room due to crippling pain from my head through all my joints and bones. They gave me a shot of tramadol first and it didn't phase me. Then they gave me the Nubain and for once, I wasn't in pain. Most pain medicines won't work on me, but this worked wonders!

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I have been suffering from severe pain for 8 years now from crushed nerves from a work related incident. I get immediate pain relief without the side effects like upset stomach, nausea, dizziness and headache. I think this a wonderful drug for a chronic pain suffer like me who gets no relief from the ther pain medications on the market.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I use Nubain twice a week for pain in my back due to being injured several years ago. This is one of the best medications I have found that didn't put me to sleep for hours after I take it.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I received an injection cocktail of Nubain and Phenergren after suffering from a Migrane headache that had lasted for 6 days. I was in ER for 4 days before that and the injections they gave me there wore off and the pain was back. I was prescribed Fiorcet and it helped to some degree, but the headache was back when the medicine wore off. Once I received the Nubain, I've only had to take 1 Fiorcet, and this morning, for the first time in a week, I've been able to wake up with no pain.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I find Nubain to be the only solution to a headache gone bad. It works quickly and I have no rebound effects. It is a miracle in my life when all else fails.

Nubain (nalbuphine) for Pain: I felt like this drug worked better than vicodin, demerol and percocet. I received Nubain in the ER after a gall bladder attack. Immediate relief and no side effects from the worst pain I've ever experienced.
