My wife has been using opiate pain medicine for years, doctor shopping, etc. when she ran out of legal options to keep herself going, her healthcare professional prescribed her Nucynta ER, telling her it is not a narcotic and is not addictive. Is this a safe medicine to take long term? she doesn't appear to be titrating down and it has been over a year.
Also, I am relatively sure she "augments" at times with short acting opiate pain medicine.
How safe is Nucynta ER long term. I think her healthcare professional is treating addiction from his pain clinic....
oh, and how will I know if you respond?
