  • Does nucynta filter through the liver (1 answer)
    I have rectal cancer and it is very painful. I also have a rare liver condition and I need to take a pain controller that is not filtered through the liver.
  • Can prolia cause side effects to tkr?
    I had total knee replacements for both knees in 2011. The left knee turned out fair but the right never gave me any relief. In 2012 I was put on Remicade which helped my RA a great deal. Then a couple months ago I was given Prolia injection for my Osteoporosis. Two days later I experienced a lot of pain in my knees. My doctor didn't think it was the Prolia but I do because it happened just 2 days after the shot. The pain continues to get worse and my knees are getting very stiff and hurts a great deal to walk. The doctor doesn't know anything more she can do for me. She upped my dose of Remicade from every 8 weeks to every 6 weeks and added Plaquenil but it hasn't helped at all. I have chronic back pain and have been getting injections at a pain center for that and take pain drugs for that as well but they don't do a thing for the knees. Do you think the Polia could have caused this problem in my knees. What can you suggest to me. I would really like to find out what is causing so much pain and stiffness and what to do about it. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • Unexplained death of a young, healthy man
    My 35 year old husband died after taking Nucynta ER for 14 days. Although he had no history of seizures the drug caused him to have multiple seizures one night. This resulted in cardiac arrest and an untimely death of a strong, healthy, hard working man. Please know all of the possible side affects of any drug before you take anything and make sure you tell someone if you are experiencing any difficulties at all.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • I stopped taking nucynta 4 days ago, had been on them at least 2 months for back pain, now I have symptoms of bronchitis. How can I tell if it is withdrawal symptoms or infection?


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Have been dealing with some oddities the past couple of years. Severe hand and feet coldness in even the slightest cold environment- most obvious as it moves into the colder months. Will typically lose feeling in feet, and feet especially hurt. Heating pads will not warm up the extremity, although a lengthy hot shower will help for the short-term. Hands will appear as though I've been strongly holding onto something, with notable patchy redness on the palms. Will experience full body shaking at times due to the cold. This, in spite of layering my clothes.

    The fatigue has been going on the past year and is not related to exposure to cold. I live in north central florida, so it's not as though I live in a northern state.


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Freezing cold feel like I'm tripping on the medicine and can not function the side effects last for hours
