I have severe lumbar and cervical pain and am post L5 S1 fusion one year.
My pain specialist prescribed Nucynta ER 50 mg every 12 hours plus I have Percocet 10/325 mg every 6 hours.
I'm still in pain but just began the Nucynta 3 days ago.
Can anyone tell me if this drug will build up in time to lessen nerve pain? I set my times up to follow the every 12 hour rule for Nucynta.
I believe I should be on Immediate Release instead, because I had gastric bypass surgery 4 yrs ago.
