Talwin Nx (naloxone / pentazocine): “Complete joke! I’ve had 9 different back surgeries and I was in horrific pain the entire time. I thought very seriously about suicide to relieve the unbearable pain. I finally retained an attorney and sued the pain management doctor. The judge said his treatment amounted to sadistic torture. I won my case and was able to hire a compassionate doctor. Talwin made me feel severely anxious and sick the entire time that I took it. I would never take it again.”

Talwin Nx (naloxone / pentazocine): “Talwin was first given to me when I had wrist surgery to reattach tendons and ligaments torn from the bone during a car accident. Plus I have fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. And I'm allergic to all the morphine, codeine types. My wrist surgeon coupled Talwin NX with Phenergan and it worked like a charm. Now I use that very combination for psoriatic arthritis flares. It's wonderful!”

Talwin Nx (naloxone / pentazocine): “Great medicine for controlling pain/chronic pain. non addictive.the nclenal stands for Nicene which is arcane.an opioid & drug overdose reversal medication. it works by blocking opioid and other addictive medications from building up in cells/body. as talwin contains small amounts of opioid the amazing thing about this medication is while using for chronic pain, it took away all mental urges or desires to think about drinking alcohol.which I had stopped yrs before but had that mental desires or thoughts too drink.Cravings so to say.it may have same long term result for addicts who crave other drugs..amazing! An important fact that is not a warning from drug co.is .it blocks relax meds before procedures su.colonoscopy, relax medication.scary”

“I have been taking this med for many years and it still works great. It has greatly improved my quality of life. I have had several cervical neck surgeries and I have lived with chronic pain for many years. This medication has been a life saver for me and I would recommend it to anyone living with chronic pain. Thank You”

Talwin Nx (naloxone / pentazocine): “I had a head on collision with my car and another vehicle in 1996. My neck, shoulder, and back were affected. Initially put in Loritab but I was nauseated and also worried about becoming dependent. I then tried the injections in my back and did pain management. My job was physically demanding and it was difficult to just walk. My doctor prescribed me Talwin NX about 10 years ago. Initially my pharmacist told me that it was an older pain medication and that I needed my doctor to change me over to Loritab or something else. I told the pharmacist my concerns about opioids and he has started keeping the Talwin Nx to fill my prescriptions. I only take them when I need to be very active. Thirty pills usually last me 45-60 days as the most I have taken in a day is 1 pill. I have gone without taking any for over a week. I have been injured multiple times since that car wreck but will only take Talwin for my pain.”

Talwin Nx (naloxone / pentazocine): “I was on this for most of the 80's and 90's. No need to up dosage, I would give anything to get them again. Last year I weaned off morphine, because it was too low of a dose. 60mgs. Per day! I moved, and back home I got up to 120mgs of methadone per day. Plus pain Doc'S are VERY scarce here, the few there are either won't take new patients and/or my insurance. So to answer the question- TalwinNX works really well on pain. It can cause anxiety in some people.”

“I was first prescribed Talwin (pentazocine) after I became allergic to Hydrocodone and Oxycodone. I did develop a tolerance to both those drugs and had up up my dosage. My orthopedic doctor wanted me to try Talwin. He said it was an old school pain reliever. I started out on 2 every four hours. After being on it for five years now, I take three every four hours. It just flat takes away the pain without getting high. I have no plans on going to a higher dose. If I forget and take too much I either start itching or throwing up. It works just as well today as it did when I was first prescribed it. I think those who are in need of real pain relief that don’t like the effects of Hydrocodone or Oxycodone Should give Talwin a try. It just flat works for my type if pain. Which is osteoarthritis in my hands, back, neck.”

“I've been on this medicine for five years and is the best pain relief for my knees and back. Still can't do much on this medicine but it takes away the pain. Lay down after taking for best results.”

Talwin Nx (naloxone / pentazocine): “Used Talwin NX for Carpel Tunnel. Worst feeling ever! I felt drunk, for car sick, had horrible dreams- it did not help with pain relief. I would not take it again!”
