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..

Vicodin woes
I will only comment on the migraines and palpitations for the moment. I too had both on a regular basis. What I found out by accident is that when you raise the meds for the heart condition (I am on Lopressor) the migraines magically disappeared after nearly 50 years of dealing with them. It also controls the palpitations. I too am on Vicodin daily for pain that is becoming increasing difficult to control and seems like as I age, naturally more pain enters. I sure would love to talk to 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
