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..

Norco/hydrocodone, Qualitest brand name generic.
Right now is take any brand cause FDA causing a lot of problems in Michigan. No drug store has any cause FDA said label had to changed, so they had to send back what they had and now waiting for suppliers to ship them to the store. I would of thought FDA would of thought this out better. I have a disease and need my Meds but what I do

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
