I was just given this med perscription today and can not pay to get it filled as it cost to much.i have polycystic kidneys.and have been on pills sence I was 17.i have had my right kidney taken out 2 years ago..also my young girl has it burbut she is only 12 so no problems yet..my pain doc keeps putting on different meds to try but I can only take soon due to sideeffects and may cause renal falure..so any advice is welcome.ty
The only part of this question I'm really able to respond to is the cost issue unfortunately. If you go to Nucynta's official site, they have a coupon you can print out that you will only pay $25 for your script. You can use the same coupon up to 14 times, then just print a new one. I have used it for both of my prescriptions with no problem. This is a newer medication only approved in 2008, and can have some side effects, but they are different for everyone. Starting at a lower dose and working your way up until you get adequate relief is the best way to go.
