    Nucynta false negative urine test

    I have been on Nucynta ER now for almost 2+ years for severe fibromyalgia pain. I take 100 mg ER in the morning and 50 mg ER in the night on daily basis. In addition I also take 50 mg IR tablet for break through pain. In addition to Nucynta I'm on 200 mg of Lyrica, 20 mg baclofen, 200 mg celebrex and 10 mg of amitriptyline.

    Two months back at my regular visit I was asked for a urine sample. At my next doctors visit I was shocked to hear that my sample tested negative for Nucynta in the urine, despite the fact that i have been taking the drug diligently as prescribed. From what i know the test checked for opiates and many other pain meds. The results sheet had almost half a page of various drugs listed on it. I am well off and pay for my drugs. My only concern is always my well being and to control this wretched pain that never stops, renders you helpess beyond anyones imagination. Honestly what Nucynta has done even oxy couldn't do it for me.

    On the second visit I was asked for a second sample. On my third visit I have found that even the second sample tested negative. Honestly I'm concerned and stressed to the maximum and it's not helping with the fibro pain either. What if the third test comes negative ? What is wrong here ? I'm totally lost right now. What will happen if I'm cut off from pain meds ?
