Nucynta Headache Causes and Reviews


Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

Nucynta Headache 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.
