Today he wrote me a prescription of Nucynta 250 mg 3 x daily. I have been on oxycontin for several years, but they have lost their effectiveness somewhat. Can you tell me if one 250 Nycynta is anywhere near the strength of the oxys I've been used to (generally took 60 mg. 4 times a day)? This medicine is so hard to find here in Beckley, WV that I had to go to 7 different pharmacies before I could find it (and at that they had to order this special strength. Thans for any advice.
