have been taking 200mg a day x every 4-6 of Nucynta orange 100's for about six months. I am 5'4 220lb 42 year old female.The medicine worked very good 6 months ago, still works, but not long enough, and break through pain is stronger and returns faster, and I consider my dose strong. Side effects for me are dizziness=mild, thirst=severe,voice change=severe, sleepiness=mild, aggitation=increased enough to have to say Im sorry. Also a strange eye problem kind of feels like my eyes are yawning, but I am not yawning. If you have ever taken Oxcycotin and Nucynta (not at same time) which one is better in your opinion? I have never taken Oxy I hear bad things about it,I am concerned about tolorence,dont know what to ask the DR to give me?
I've taken Oxycontin for several years, and now at an even lower dose than originally prescribed. It helps me perform fairly close to normal. I wouldn't worry about the tolerance issue if you take it responsibly. Nucynta, however, made me loopy to the point I was walking into walls and nearly fell down the stairs. Only later did I discover it had an anti-depressant component.
I am a nurse of 30 yrs and a chronic pain patient. I believe that everyone has a individual threshold of pain and tolerence to any type of meds. As to which is stronger, its a personal opinion. The pharm lit can give your their response because they do all the drug trials, but i really believe you will have different answers from people that have taken both of these meds.
