Can you take nucynta and NyQuil together?
I am prescribed both Nucynta and Vicodin for a lower back problem, and I currently have a cold. I know I can not take Vidodin with Nyquil because of the APA unless I take a half dose of NyQuil. But is it okay to take nucynta with NyQuil? My pharmacy is closed or I would call and ask.

For a report I like: http://www.mayoclinic.org/

The Federal Gov provides info:

is Nucynta an opiate?
I am taking this medication Nucynta Before I take it I read that is an Mu-opiate. I told my dr. I did not to take a naracotic. My body has a reaction

  Technically, yes, it is. However it's an extremely weak one. If you're allergic, I wouldn't take it.... however if it's the common "opiate nausea" problem I don't really see it causing a problem as it's only slightly stronger than Tramadol, the weakest opiate around.

I get headaches when I take nucynta. Would you think my doctor would give me something else?
Nucynta is a narcotic, do you think he would just give me plain old lortab instead if i asked?

  Maybe. Go to your doctor and tell him that you get headaches when you take nucynta. Ask him if he can change your dosage first, and if that does not help, I am sure he will change your prescription. He may not give you Lortab though, but he'll work with you until he finds something that works. Please be aware, that if you ask for a specific drug, particularly one with a high addiction rate, it is possible that your physician begins to suspect drug addiction as the real reason you are requesting the change. As such, you should never ask for a specific drug, but let your physician come to his own conclusions.

  I had the 50 mg Nucynta and it doesn't seem to be as strong as hydrocodone... In my opinion, its more like an ultram :-(

  It's new. You might have problems finding it. It is the first new C-2 opiate in over 20 years. It is just as effective as oxycodone, but has fewer stomach related side effects.
Try a hospital pharmacy.

Doc changed my meds from Percocet to nucynta?
Its been 2 days and my arm is killing me. I still take the gabapentin for the nerve pain but this isnt helping the other pain.
I took shapnel to my right bicep and most of it was removed.
What exactly is he doing to me?
Also what is this pill, a genaric, or a super motrine?

  I'll share my experience with Nucynta. Had switched to Nucynta after a week on Oxycontin and Vicodon. I had to stop using this stuff. I am normally a very positive happy person. It didn't help my pain enough for the hopelessness it caused. Quit cold turkey after two weeks on pain meds. Had two sessions of colon hydrotherapy sessions to help get toxins out and constipation flowing. Dealt with withdrawals (3 days) and pain from surgery, but was worth feeling like myself mentally. Side effects: depressed, agitated, very emotional, crying a lot, couldn't eat (not good for healing),just felt sickly and gross(never experienced this feeling before), night sweats, heart racing, extra sleepy or wired (couldn't win), panic attack, constipation, etc. I purchase Nucynta through reputable http://www.gofmanpharmacy.com/ they've been very reliable so far. Check this FDA link about Nucynta http://google2.fda.gov/search?client=FDAgov&site=FDAgov-Recalls-Safety|FDAgov-Consumers|FDAgov-WarningLetters-ICECI|FDAgov-ImportAlerts-Industry|FDAgov-MedWatch-Safety|FDAgov-Section-Drugs&output=xml_no_dtd&proxystylesheet=FDAgov&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&as_q=nucynta&num=20&btnG=Search&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&restrictBox=FDAgov-Recalls-Safety&restrictBox=FDAgov-Consumers&restrictBox=Medwatch&restrictBox=FDAgov-WarningLetters-ICECI&restrictBox=FDAgov-ImportAlerts-Industry&restrictBox=FDAgov-Section-Drugs&lr=&as_ft=i&as_filetype=&as_occt=any&as_dt=i&as_sitesearch=&sort=date

Info needed on a pain med called Nucynta?
I have read all the medical info on it, I am looking for personal experience with taking it, I have severe pain and have been on pain meds for years, percocet 10 and oxycontin, and then Opana 40mg and now this is new and suppose to work so I am hoping to find someone who has taken it so that I can know if it is worth the $$$ to fill it. Thanks and they are 75mg

  You won't find a lot of personal experience since it just came out to the market. It's in the same class as tramadol (brand name is Ultram). Although it's stronger than Ultram it's still less potent than oxycodone or Opana.
What kind of pain do you have? If it's neuropathic (nerve) pain, adding Lyrica or gabapentin might help. Otherwise stick to oxycodone/Opana and save your money for something else.
