Nucynta (tapentadol): Found to be equivalent to oxycodone (percocet) with fewer GI side effects. Nucynta (tapentadol) thought to work like Percocet and possibly the same way as cymbalta. Nucynta (tapentadol) comes in short and long acting.

Potency: 50 mg of Nucynta (tapentadol) is as potent as 10 mg of percocet.
