Could Nucynta (tapentadol) be prescribed for post op severe pain for Fulkerson osteotomy? If so what dose would be appropriate if comparing to 5-10mg oxycodone?

Could Nucynta (tapentadol) be prescribed for post op severe pain for Fulkerson osteotomy? If so what dose would be appropriate if comparing to 5-10mg oxycodone?

Yes: All narcotic medications bind the same receptor with different affinity making some more efficacious at lower doses. The Oxycodone should be fine and and you shouldn't need it for very long. Get off of it as soon as you can. Why do you want to use Nucynta (tapentadol) instead? ...Read more

Can narcotic pain pills diliuid, oxycodone, nucynta (tapentadol) cause hallucinations in a 72 year old women she says she's having them?

Can narcotic pain pills diliuid, oxycodone, nucynta (tapentadol) cause hallucinations in a 72 year old women she says she's having them?

Absolutely YES: Why is a 72 yr old women taking dilaudid, oxycodone, and/or nucynta, (tapentadol) for chronic back pain? Not only are there GI effects such as nausea and constipation, but there is risk of sleep apnea, delirium, and cardiac arrhythmias. In my opinion, you need to find a geriatrician and get this under control. ...Read more

What to do if I have been on a combination of morphin ER and roxicodone (oxycodone) for over 6 years but I am?

What to do if I have been on a combination of morphin ER and roxicodone (oxycodone) for over 6 years but I am?

Combo narcs: The question is why were you prescribed these drugs in the first place? For the most part, narcotics should be preserved for acute pain (a broken bone, burns, surgery etc). Its generally a bad idea for chronic pain. I would suggest you try to get weaned off these drugs (not easy). There are better long term substitutes. See a pain/addiction specialist. ...Read more

I'm taking Oxycodone HCL5 MG for pain, ZolipidemTart ER 12.5 MG for sleep, and Clonazpam 0.5 MG for anxiety. I can't sleep no matter when I take them?

Addiction, tolerance: Hi. I'm not preaching at you, but those are 3 controlled substances, all of which are potentially addicting, and all of which can induce tolerance. And if I had to guess, I'd guess you have a low pain threshold and an addictive personality. Might I suggest you worry less about your sleep and more about your chemical dependency. Again, not preaching, just wishing you good health. Good luck! ...Read more

I take 2mgs of xanax (alprazolam) 3x daily (started at. 5mg 4x 35 years ago). Is 10mgs oxycodone 2x and 15mgs morphine ER 2x for back diseases safe with the xanax (alprazolam)?

I take 2mgs of xanax (alprazolam) 3x daily (started at. 5mg 4x 35 years ago). Is 10mgs oxycodone 2x and 15mgs morphine ER 2x for back diseases safe with the xanax (alprazolam)?

It is not safe: Taking that much of an opiate can be deadly if not under the care of an experienced MD, preferably a pain specialist. According to the CDC, accidental deaths due to opiates (hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine) cause 44 deaths PER DAY! This is an epidemic, so it is pretty safe to say that opiates are NOT safe medications unless under the CLOSE supervision of a Dr! Http://www. Cdc. Gov/drugoverdose/epidemic/index. Html ...Read more

My friend was recently @the er. They gave her two. 5 mg dilaudid IV and two 5mg oxycodone ir. She also took 4 vicodin 5/500mg. Could she at risk of od?

Possibly: Overdose is always a possibility when dealing with narcotics. Each person and their history are required to answer completely. If this person is chronically using large doses of narcotics then they will have a tolerance to these drugs and will require more than the average non narcotic using patient to experience respiratory depression and death. Narcotics are dangerous period. ...Read more

I just found out I have kidney stones and was given oxycodone. However I'm having new symptoms. Should I go back to the er?

I just found out I have kidney stones and was given oxycodone. However I'm having new symptoms. Should I go back to the er?

Got some oxycodone for the ER today. I'm not really sure if its going to have an effect on my r lowr abdominal pain. Should it? Consequences of overuse?

Probably fine: You won't know if it will help until you try it. If the er physician prescribed it, only take it as prescribed and you should theoretically be fine and not have any consequences.

Of course all narcotic pain medications have a risk of death from overdosing, or the development of addiction, but listen to the doctor that prescribed it. ...Read more

5 months ago was prescribed tramadol by ER. I went to Pain management for first time and forgot to tell them I took 1 but told them about my oxycodone before drug screen. What do I do at next visit when she gets results?

5 months ago was prescribed tramadol by ER. I went to Pain management for first time and forgot to tell them I took 1 but told them about my oxycodone before drug screen. What do I do at next visit when she gets results?

Come clean fast!: Let your pain management doc know that you usually take oxycodone for chronic pain, but that you had more pain and took the tramadol. All of these controlled substances will be seen in your urine drug test. It's better to let them know that you forgot to tell them before you have to face accusatory questioning like, "So, where did the tramadol come from? " ...Read more

I am conserned, my 19 yr old 110 lbs 5' daughter is addicted to oxycodone and opana with frequent Er visits when running out of her Rx early.

Family intervention.: "They" used to say that an addict had to want treatment for success in getting off drugs. We know now that a family intervention with the help of a qualified addiction specialist can be very successful in getting treatment started. This may not be paid for by insurance & be expensive but there are some outstanding programs, inc. Betty Ford Clinic who now people who can help. Ask PCP for area help. ...Read more

After 4 lumbar surgeries and fusions from L3 to S2, (racepinephrine) my 10/325mg oxycodone and 30mg Morphine ER aren't working. What options without going stronger?

Go, different: The pendulum has swung from adding more and more opioids to switching to different ones. Nucynta (tapentadol) has proven benefit in nerve pain, and may be a better choice here, but also, consider a spinal, cord stimulator which is non medicine, adjuvants such as gabapentin or, Lyrica, which are non opioids but Lyrica is indicated for spinal, nerve pain as well. See a pain doc who will assist you with this problem ...Read more

Need continuous care: If you know you have crohn's disease, you need routine care from a doctor (primary or gi). Serious pain could indicate a stricture (narrowing) of the intestine or even a perforation. Don't just take pain meds, as these will only hide the problem. Please see your doctor soon, and avoid trips to the er. Your other meds may need to be changed or increased. ...Read more

Can you help? Is 239 mg of oxycodone lethal?

Depends...: It is likely to be fatal in an opioid naive patient; however, patients who are very tolerant to opioids from long term pain management can tolerate oral daily doses of that and beyond but in divided doses. Abusers who might inject that quantity in a single dose will in all likelihood not survive. ...Read more
