    Nucynta 75
    wandac0917 posted:
    Hello everyone! I had two L5/S1 Diskectomies in September 2002. After the first year of a living hell, I started getting Caudal Epidurals in my lower back. These epidurals literally kept me going, able to work and live a norma life style, even wear heels. In November 2011, I retired and moved from Central Kentucky to Southwest Florida. Once again I became immobile due to the pain. The pain doctors here in FL do not think epidurals are the way to go. The third pain doctor I have seen in this area prescribed Nucynta 75 mg four times a day, whether I was in pain or not. After four months I am down to taking the Nucynta "as needed." This med has worked great for me! I always have it nearby.
