Customer Question
Just spoke to you...

Just spoke to you and did not get an answer and paid my money for it

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Nucynta ER 50mg, Percocet For breakthrough pain .I have asthma and would like to know if there is a drug equivalent to this that does not interfere with breathing

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Over a year And failed back surgery pain since 1997 and spinal fusion in 1998 .It helps but I have asthma and it has a breathing indication .Is there another drug equivalent that does not have this indication

Hello! I replied to your original question at 9:10 am: Nucynta can certainly cause symptoms like shortness of breath and cough. Often times, it can occur when you first start on the drug or when the dose is increased. Is the Nucynta ER a new drug for you or did you recently have the dose increased?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 8 months ago

Thanks for clarifying. Do you tolerate the Percocet without breathing trouble?

but is there a long acting drug like Nucynta That is equivalent that I could take
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 8 months ago

Yes, there is a long acting drug I would recommend: Oxycontin. It has the same ingredient that is in Percocet (oxycodone). Since you already know you tolerate that drug, it will be the best one to try.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
