... Percocet 5mg up to 4 a day. I don't like taking so many pills each day so my doctor has me trying this new one now. I'm finding some pain relief but not a lot. What dose do you find good and any information about side effects you've had would be helpful too. I've had no side effects so far
Hi kimstuff, its subzero 58 or pete, nucynta,I dont know alot about doses but i'm sure you know its a opiate for chronic to severe pain. You can find more info right here on the med list. but scroll down to the end of that list and click on more meds that start with the letter n. but good luck with this new med give it some time to sink in and if it makes your pain a little better maybe you need to have a dose incress. hope this helps ya,have a wonderful pain free day :)
I started taking 50mg every 4 hours of Nucynta last month and it wasn't quite covering enough of my pain, so I asked my doctor if I could try the 75mg, and he didn't seem to have a problem with it. The 75 is working just fine for me and it seems to work 5-6 hours as opposed to the 3.5 hours I was getting from the 50. I haven't noticed any new side effects, I still get the occassional headache, but since the Nucynta doesn't have any acetaminophen in it, I can take a headche medication for it. And I realized you said 2x a day... Usually it's like 4x a day because it's usually for every 4 hours.
i love being on nucynta,,, when my doctor gave me the 75mg. i felt i had my life back,,but after a week it made me feel nervous ,, so he put me on the 50mg. which i take one tablet every 6 hours,, which is 2 a day,, cause i also take neurotin?? 400 mg 3 times a day,, plus i take roboxin for my mucsle spasms,,
