"I have horrible nerve pain. Neither vicodin, oxycontin, morphine or any other opium based medicine worked. Plus my body had gotten used to the other pain pills. The actiq was AMAZING! It almost completely rid me of the pain (1000x stronger than morphine) and it is measured in micrograms (Mcg)it is so powerful. It was perfect for my burning nerve pain, and nerve spasms. Easiest drug to get BOTH chemically AND mentally addicted. Be careful"

"I have been a pain management patient for 4 years now. I am very sensitive to many medications and there are not many pain medications that I can take because I have such adverse side effects from them. The Actiq lozenge works very well for my breakthrough pain. It works very fast to releive my pain and the good thing is that I have control of my medication intake. Sometimes it is not nessesary to use the whole dose so, I never have to take any more medication than I need. "

"I have been on Actiq for over 2 years. I've been on the same dose the whole time and I must admit, without it, I would be bed ridden and contorted. Actiq is a very serious medication that each prescriber/user needs to be educated, responsible and accountable for. I truly thank the good Lord for it because my quality of life has improved tremendously, without it my life would be full of pain and agony and I would be just a shell of who I am now. So, Actiq is great, just use with care!"

"My experience with Actiq was like a miracle. I get many, very severe migraines, especially when I am in a stressful, rushed situation. Some of these occasions are holidays, birthdays, etc. I would try to prepare ahead of time, but frequently I would get a migraine. When a bad migraine doesn't abate after the usual rescue and pain management medicines, I would take Actiq, without it I can't participate with my family to help with any preparations, spend any time with them, and can't even sit down to have a meal with them. After several times of a ruined holiday or special times with family, they either forget you or resent you. Children don't understand at all. So, the next time there's a special event, you get nervous thinking of it."

"I've had chronic daily cluster headaches for about 35 years. Actiq is the only med that I've tried to offer near-complete relief. I've been using them for almost five years and they still work as well as the first time. For me, a true "miracle drug"."
