Nucynta Suicide Attempt Causes and Reviews


Suicide is the tenth most common cause of death in the United States. People may consider suicide when they are hopeless and can't see any other solution to their problems. Often it's related to serious depression, alcohol or substance abuse, or a major stressful event.

People who have the highest risk of suicide are white men. But women and teens report more suicide attempts. If someone talks about suicide, you should take it seriously. Urge them to get help from their doctor or the emergency room, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is available 24/7.

Therapy and medicines can help most people who have suicidal thoughts. Treating mental illnesses and substance abuse can reduce the risk of suicide.

Nucynta Suicide Attempt 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.
