Reviews for Morphine/naltrexone

Sort by:

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "I only took this medication 3 days because of the awful side effects I endured. The feeling of nervousness, unclear thinking. It was if I were stuck in my body and my heart racing which made me feel as if I could not breath. I also broke out in a cold sweat and felt cold. During this same time I started having tingling sensations in my right arm into my fingers. I did not associate this with the medication until I read other reviews. I had many of the side effects listed. The medication seemed to help with my pain some but because of the horrible feelings it wasn't a positive medication for me. I even took it again thinking maybe I was overreacting or in my head."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "The first day I took Embeda, I had no relief and was badly in pain. But the second day, I woke up and felt great. It has really helped my pain. I've been taking IR meds most of my life, leaving me waking up in the middle of the night in huge pain - since Embeda that's gone away! I feel good, lot less pain, and am very impressed! Only downside - constipation and face redness. Otherwise it's great! And I'm only taking 40mgs with 4 Norco for rescue meds"

For Chronic Pain: "When I started taking this Rx, I found it much more reliable than my previous chronic pain med, fentanyl patches, which did not evenly alleviate the pain over the 3 days each patch was supposed to be worn. The patches would work well over the 1st 2 days, give or take, but their effectiveness was noticeably weaker on the 3rd day. Unlike my experience with oxycontin, the pain relief from this Rx generally lasts pretty close to the 12 hours it is supposed to, in time for the next dose. I believe the naltrexone inhibits the marked euphoria as felt on the first day of a fresh fentanyl patch or when taking a short acting opioid like vicodin or percocet."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been on Embeda for just 1 month, and at first it was rough constantly hurting and withdrawals, extremely tired, headaches. Now I guess things are starting to level off but the headaches persist but my pain is finally under control with the Embeda 30-1.2 once a day and percocet 10mgs 3 times day for break through pain. I have degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis in both knees, fibromyalgia, Lupus, I'm hoping I can soon get my life back. I'm grateful for the not high feeling and the most important thing is I'm not constantly not pain anymore so my depression is getting better and I don't have to use the percocet as much. Now if the headaches leave and the over tired feeling would leave I will 100 percent."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "I had been on Avinza then insurance change it to generic the about 8 months ago the option was Embeda. Wow what a change took 2 months to adjust now the pain level is tolerable just wack out of my head, no energy just don't want to do anything but lay around. The main problem is interaction its just no compatible with alot of medications including toradol, allergy medication. I would normally take some 10-325 hydrocodones but the combination is terrible, and where I live smoking weed is legal and it interact's which tell me this product needs to go it the worst med's I have had. I getting off it for good its not a good medication and long term I hate to think what its doing to me."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: ""I have been taking this medicine for only a few days now and have noticed some things that have me very concerned because it was given for pain but I have been experiencing major side effects. The first thing that started was headaches then depression , nausea , stomach aches,feeling of swelling of my legs, feet, ankles, hands and it feels like I'm retaining fluid all over my body,I didn't have these side effects when I was taking Morphine without the extra ingredient like the Ebedea has and now am worried that I am going to be in sever pain as this medication does very little for my pain."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "This med has worked a lot better than the 10mg Percocet 4 x daily that I was on before. I take 10mg Percocet cut in half twice daily with the Embeda, it helps while the med has a slow uptake. The first week or so, I was a little bit dizzy and tired. That went away and I have no complaints. The meds work. The Narcan in the pills doesn't bother me or effect the way the meds work for me. I have had bad back problems for 25 years. My S Spine and my L Spine are separated on the right side 4mm and the L spine is pushed forward 2mm. I have had chronic pain half of my life due to this injury. This medicine really helps."

For Chronic Pain: "After sucessfully taking Avinza 120 3x daily I was selected to try Embeda 120. I took my 1st dose shortly after leaving the Pharmacy. Stopped for a take-out sandwich. When I reached home I started feeling strange...by the time I walked into my kitchen I heard a loud sound like cicadas in the trees...thought " this is springtime, what are they doing out?" Then I realized the sound was in my head. Got super dizzy, barely made it to the bed before experiencing instant, total withdrawal symptoms. And no, I didn't crush the Embeda just swallowed it. I writhed around the bed for 8 hours in violent convulsions, badly hurting my knees which needed replacement. Found out later I was one of the 8-12 % who carry an enzyme that releases the Naltrexone"

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "I have numerous spinal conditions including failed lumbar fusion surgery, (L4/L5 fusion) disc collapse at L3/,L4 & L5/S1, osteoarthritis throughout my spine, damaged nerves, spinal fontinal narrowing, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis in my shoulders, knees and hips. I'm also taking spinal nerve blocks and nerve root burnings on 6 levels in my lumbar and sacral spine. I was given theirs and was told I'd never had anything "this strong"for pain. I absolutely get no relief from this medication and I'm not a drug seeking patient. I am a mom to 4 children, my youngest is 3 and has special needs due to a chromosome duplication. All I want is to feel somewhat normal without being so messed up I'm not aware of what's going on around me."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "I've been on this joke for medication for 3 months now because the doctor refused to change me from it while I was going through diagnostic procedures and finally nerve ablation. It's never helped my pain. It's given me severe headaches, made me irritable, I've gained 30lbs on it, had swelling in my legs and arms and also really has affected my moods and my patience level. I've begged for a change or an increase but was told he wanted me to stay where I was until after the ablation. Well had that 2 weeks ago, since then I've had major increases in pain, a headache that hasn't stopped since the procedure, hip pain (That wasn't there before the procedure). I'm on a low dose for this, I don't think I need a break through pain thru med."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "Chronic Pain Patient for 20 years and am now 48. This medicine works great as long as I have the 2 per day 30mg IR Morphine to take in case of break through pain but I cut those in half to only take 25mg when the break through pain isn't to bad. I have found Embeda to work really good for me and doesn't make me feel all doped up."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "Complicated history; 2 different genetic mutations causing multiple disorders, polyarticular gout, pseudogout with calcium crystals in all joints, 3 level neck fusion, 4 back surgeries. The last lumbar surgery caused a blood clot in the spine; loss of bowel and bladder control, severe arthritis with damaged joints, Paget's disease of the bone, etc. Been on MS ER since the 4th failed surgery but had to change doctors. The new Doc put me on Embeda and it is awful. Headache within the hour, withdrawal symptoms within 3-4 hours, sweating and leg cramps, nausea, constipation but worse of all no pain relief. After being on a regimen that worked since 2003, with the flap about abuse doctors are afraid of Morphine."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "Being prescribed several opiates over the years after surgical operations. Last medication prescribed was OxyCodone 30mg. Had to get a new Doc at pain management and Embeda was prescribed to me. I am still having severe pain. I am also prescribed Neurotin 600mg. Am I the only one who feels bad? Especially switching from a strong opiate to Embeda?"

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "I have been taking this medicine for several months now and I have noticed some things that have occurred which is making me very scared because it is messing with my body in a very bad way! The first thing that started was the headaches then the rest started showing up daily like depression , nausea , stomach aches, swelling of my legs, feet, ankles, hands it's like I'm retaining fluid all over my body, blurred vision, nose bleeds! I haven't read up on the side effects yet but I'm sure I'm not going to be surprised if it's on the list.I didn't have these side effects when I was taking Morphine without the extra ingredient like the Ebedea has and now my Insurance will only pay for this medication and it cost $1300 a month!!"

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Chronic Pain: "This medication has changed my life. I have suffered from osteoarthritis for the past ten years. I had a complete knee replacement 5 months ago and even though the surgery went well, the recovery is long and difficult. I have taken Narco 5mg from time to time and Cymbalta, Nucynta, Tramadol and over the counter meds. Nothing helped. I have been on the Embeda for two weeks and I can finally feel normal. I take the 20mg Embeda and I am very pleased."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Pain: "I have L4 & L5 degenerated bone to bone with spurs and stenosis. Definitive nerve damage down both legs. Doctor started me on hydrocodone 10 mg x4 plus Soma 350mg x3/day. Put me on 20/1.2 Embeda for 4 months, then upped dose to 50/2.0 mg. Very seldom do I take Vicodin or Soma anymore. I can actually work at my job as a fabricator/machinist with little or no pain and no drowsiness or getting angry. Kind of got my life back, and I can ride the Harley with no worry of long-trip pains."

Embeda (morphine / naltrexone) for Pain: "I been taking different types of strong pain medicines for years, due to a bad neck injury. In October, my doctor put me on this, I had no side effects, and feel like myself again. Since 1997, I also was taking antidepressants and muscle relaxers. I am off all that now. I take one 80mg a day, which I am going to start dropping dosage, as the weather warms to see how I feel."
