Reviews for Talwin Nx

Anonymous August 29, 2010

“I deal with chronic back and leg pain due to a ruptured disc and bulging disc above and below, 3 ruptured discs that were fused via surgery. I have been on opiates (hydrocodone, morphine, oxycet) for 4 years and finally got sick of the side effects and physical dependency these drugs create. The dependency and withdrawal finally got worse than the pain that these drugs released. I detoxed cold turkey off of them for 2 weeks and then decided to try this medicine. I have been on it for about a month and it has worked wonders. Very few side effects and sweet pain relief. I do not have to be on this medicine every waking moment and I can even go days without needing any. So far this has become the answer I have been searching for.”

“I have been taking Talwin NX for about 3 years now. I have two fractures in my mid and lower back. The first Doctor I saw for this condition had me on Vicodin 10mg. He had me on 56 pills a week. After awhile, my weekly appointments stopped being about pain and started to be about getting that script filled. I finally woke up to the fact that I was addicted to these pills. It really scared me. I went to my primary physician and he really helped me. He used Talwin to detox me off of the Vicodin. It proved to be an excellent pain medicine for me. I don't know if it's my constitution but I am not addicted to Talwin NX. If I run out and can't get to my Doctor or whatever, I do not experience any withdrawal symptoms.”

“Stronger pain med, is schedule 3 drug, so its not as hard to get a prescription for. I take it for severe back arthritus pain, and it works wonders. Not as hard on the liver as drugs containing tylenol. Stay away from tylenol if you have liver disease.”

“Hydrocodone wasn't providing relief through the entire duration between doses and doctor wouldn't prescribe more frequently because of my "body size". Oxycodone didn't touch the pain, so doctor prescribed Talwin NX. I developed severe hives by the second dose and developed breathing problems. Didn't take a third dose and it didn't help with my pain that much. Have sacroiliac joint dysfunction with severe pain and lumbar pain with cycling muscle spasms. Am allergic to steroid so trigger point injections didn't work either.”

“During an armed robbery, I was shot 3 times, a month in coma, major open abdominal exploratory surgeries to repair damage & stem the lose of blood, leaving large wounds & 150+ stitches/staples & ribs wired back together, bullet frags in my spine & nerve damage. But I was alive, & could barely walk, but the Talwin nx was a tremendous help to allow me to ease the pain, so I could function & so minimal tasks through the day. It did such a good job at blocking the pain, that I had to use discretion after I took it, not to over do it, as I might & bust open any stitches, though I felt little discomfort at the time. My doctor prescribed them with no issues for about a year, and as I healed more , my frequency between doses of all my meds, including the Talwin lengthened, initially I would take 1 every 4-6 hours as prescribed, then I got to where maybe 1 a day would get me through the day... but after that and without access to pain meds, The quality of life was lessened”

“TALWIN NX is the only drug which relieved the pain in my upper spine. I have been taking two a day for 12 years and have not needed to increase dosage. To me it was a miracle drug.”
