Nucynta 50mg and weight loss
I have noticed myself has lost weight in taking Nucynta. It helps me deal with pain a lot better than Neurotin. They wanted me to continue to take neurotin, and stop nucynta. It is a lot better with nucynta. It has helped me greatly...Kim that you for posting this it has answered a question. I have osteoporosis, and fibromyalgia. Wish I could communicate more with you..

I was taking way too many vicodin (50/day) in the end...of course almost died, but God had other plans. Suboxone for 6 years, at first for withdrawal relief, then turned into pain med. Docs need spec. Lic for it, I cant afford now. Nucynta Rx'd & I'm nervous about it being like Vicodin. Thoughts?

dizziness
I had the same reaction initially with nucynta, but only the first two doses. After that its pure pain relief in 20 min and I don't have the dizziness I do with Vicodin. I would try it again under supervision
