Nucynta Overdose Causes and Reviews


What are opioids?

Opioids, sometimes called narcotics, are a type of drug. They include strong prescription pain relievers, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, and tramadol. The illegal drug heroin is also an opioid.

A health care provider may give you a prescription opioid to reduce pain after you have had a major injury or surgery. You may get them if you have severe pain from health conditions like cancer. Some health care providers prescribe them for chronic pain.

Prescription opioids used for pain relief are generally safe when taken for a short time and as prescribed by your health care provider. However, people who take opioids are at risk for opioid dependence and addiction, as well as an Overdose. These risks increase when opioids are misused. Misuse means you are not taking the medicines according to your provider's instructions, you are using them to get high, or you are taking someone else's opioids.

What is an opioid Overdose?

Opioids affect the part of the brain that regulates breathing. When people take high doses of opioids, it can lead to an Overdose, with the slowing or stopping of breathing and sometimes death.

What causes an opioid Overdose?

An opioid Overdose can happen for a variety of reasons, including if you

  • Take an opioid to get high
  • Take an extra dose of a prescription opioid or take it too often (either accidentally or on purpose)
  • Mix an opioid with other medicines, illegal drugs, or alcohol. An Overdose can be fatal when mixing an opioid and certain anxiety treatment medicines, such as Xanax or Valium.
  • Take an opioid medicine that was prescribed for someone else. Children are especially at risk of an accidental Overdose if they take medicine not intended for them.

There is also a risk of Overdose if you are getting medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT is a treatment for opioid abuse and addiction. Many of the medicines used for MAT are controlled substances that can be misused.

Who is at risk for an opioid Overdose?

Anyone who takes an opioid can be at risk of an Overdose, but you are at higher risk if you

  • Take illegal opioids
  • Take more opioid medicine than you are prescribed
  • Combine opioids with other medicines and/or alcohol
  • Have certain medical conditions, such as sleep apnea, or reduced kidney or liver function
  • Are over 65 years old
What are the signs of an opioid Overdose?

The signs of an opioid Overdose include

  • The person's face is extremely pale and/or feels clammy to the touch
  • Their body goes limp
  • Their fingernails or lips have a purple or blue color
  • They start vomiting or making gurgling noises
  • They cannot be awakened or are unable to speak
  • Their breathing or heartbeat slows or stops
What should I do if I think that someone is having an opioid Overdose?

If you think someone is having an opioid Overdose,

  • Call 9-1-1 immediately
  • Administer naloxone, if it is available. Naloxone is a safe medication that can quickly stop an opioid Overdose. It can be injected into the muscle or sprayed into the nose to rapidly block the effects of the opioid on the body.
  • Try to keep the person awake and breathing
  • Lay the person on their side to prevent choking
  • Stay with the person until emergency workers arrive
Can an opioid Overdose be prevented?

There are steps you can take to help prevent an Overdose:

  • Take your medicine exactly as prescribed by your health care provider. Do not take more medicine at once or take medicine more often than you are supposed to.
  • Never mix pain medicines with alcohol, sleeping pills, or illegal substances
  • Store medicine safely where children or pets can't reach it. Consider using a medicine lockbox. Besides keeping children safe, it also prevents someone who lives with you or visits your house from stealing your medicines.
  • Dispose of unused medicine promptly

If you take an opioid, it is also important to teach your family and friends how to respond to an Overdose. If you are at high risk for an Overdose, ask your health care provider about whether you need a prescription for naloxone.


Nucynta Overdose 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.
