Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (23 hours ago):

  • I started this medication a month ago because my usual medication was no longer working for my pain and this medication works GREAT for my pain but I am noticing stomach pain sometimes severe and I am wondering if its my new medication. I have many diseases which cause pain so I need a pain medication that works and this does so I hope its not the one causing stomach pain. I also use a time release medication and my new medication is used for breakthrough pain, so sometimes I do not have to take it. sometimes I get tummy pain other times I do not.


  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • Started after being put on seroquel. Dicussed in length that some medication may have a paradoxical effect on me.


  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I had multiple side effects while on Percocet. Stop taking cold turkey due to depression and I have had less than 5 hours sleep in 72 hours. Going crazy right now.
