Nucynta Agitation Causes and Reviews


Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease (AD) can be stressful and overwhelming. It's important to take care of yourself. Ask for and accept help.

Talk to the doctor. Find out what treatments might help control symptoms or address behavior problems. Find a support group. Others who have "been there" may be able to help and will understand.

If there are times of day that the person is less confused or more cooperative, take advantage of that in daily routines. Consider using adult day care or respite services. These offer a break with the peace of mind that the patient is being taken care of. Begin to plan for the future. This may include

  • Getting financial and legal documents in order
  • Looking into assisted living or nursing homes
  • Finding out what your health insurance and Medicare will cover

Nucynta Agitation Reviews

Sun, 21 Nov 2010

Nucynta seems to give me a period of anxiety and mild chest discomfort, not pain but discomfort that seems to be related in some way to the anxiety which lasts for about a half hour, I dont know what the idea was supposed to be behind this medication (besides making money) but it ended up as a schedule 2 narcotic, in the same class as oxycontin / oxycodone ...... so for it to have negative side effects like this makes me wonder how it survived clinical trials, there are so many other (safer) drugs for managing pain in exactly the same class as Nucynta, not to mention the ridiculous expense.

Taking any medications with
serotonin? If you are, Nucynta ER can cause
life-threatening serotonin syndrome if you are taking any other serotonergic
drugs (Prozac, Effexor etc.). On January 18, 2012 I found my husband unconscious in our car, the
car’s emergency lights were flashing, fortunately the car was not on and the
garage door was open. I rushed him to the Emergency Room of, a major NJ medical
facility; he remained in the emergency room for 13 hours. He was then moved to a
room on the cardiac floor so he could be closely monitored for several more
days.

    After extensive testing and examination, I
was told he had been in renal failure. Further, x-rays indicated he might have pneumonia
or he might have ingested something in his lungs as he passed out in his car.
He also had very low oxygen levels in his blood. He had hallucinations, as I
watched, barely aware of his surroundings. His Internist, Neurologist, and
Pulmonary specialists, all confirmed the diagnosis of “Serotonin Syndrome”, a
life threatening condition. They agreed the cause appeared to be the addition
of Nucynta ER without elimination of the other medications with serotonin,
medications he had been taking for the past 4-5 years with no ill effects.
