Regine (2 years ago):
I am Regine, 48 years old and a woman. I have been taking Nucinta for a couple weeks now and I find it very effective for pain relieve from two herniated disks. But I have to always decide if the pain is bad enough to want/need to take it. It causes me to itch so much that I have scratches all over my body. Benetril helps somewhat but it makes me so drowsy I can't work. Nucinta does make me a bit high and relaxed and the pain becomes tolerable but the itching is driving me up the wall. Can anybody give me any advice at all on how to relieve it?
