New to Nucynta
« on: October 04, 2011, 09:29:27 AM »
Did anyone ever try this fairly new pain medication Nucynta.  It's meant for short term use, which I will only be on it for about 2 weeks before foot surgery?

I've never tried it, but I just read about it, and it sounds very interesting in that the analgesia is reported to be as effective as stronger, tranditional drugs but with fewer side effects. I would definitely read up more if I was on any psychiatric-related pharms.

My question to you, though, is why are you taking it before foot surgery? Do you have chronic pain now? Because you're going to have chronic pain after the surgery, probably for a few months. I know it was four months after mine before I had periods without pain (and that's why I've been putting off getting the other foot done, but that must happen this fall.)

The doctors had me on vicodin 5/500 (been on it before), but it wasn't helping since my pain had become unmanageable, at this point.  I've never had a problem with vicodin up until now.    I didn't want the doctor to boost the vicodin to 7/750, that's too much for me.  The Nucynta helps the pain, but of course has some side affects like nausea.

As for after the surgery, I'm trying to figure out what route I should take regarding pain management.   I heard it's very painful.  The condition of my foot is the most severe the ortho pede has seen.  They will have to break the toe, and relocate the second toe.  And then, will shave down the bone. 

I should have had it done months ago but my father-in-law (lawyer) talked me out of it and now I'm paying for it, both figuratively and financially.
