This medication has worked wonders for my pain and I would recomend it insead of pain medication like Loratabs or other harsher medications. It controls pain with out the jitters like other medications.

This medication has kept my pain in control; I am 71 Hav used it for years prescribed onyby doctor. I have no side effects but I have only taken 1/2 pill when needed and it helps. I have severe back pain from hip to hip and a split rotor cuff. My only problem is that many pain management doctors will want to put some dvice in you body for a morphine but refuse to listen to a patient when they explain that this product talwin nx works better. I am 71 I still work 8 hr days 5 dys week for a c/s company...doctors need to listen and not just tell you and act like they know you better than you know yourself...did they evedr have severe reactions to codene, darvon, darvaset and the worst of all percodan which really is a horrible horrilbe pain reliver...do doctors ever stop to think that this talwin nx if not abused can help a person work live a normal life...I personaly double it. thank you for listening...pain management doctors do not listen...

Talwin has helped some with my pain. Much better than Tramadol. I have fibromyalgia, osteoarithitis, Bursitis in my hip, sciatic nerve damage, and a recent fall causing some nasty bruising from my hip down my thigh to my knee, from my elbow to my wrist, one on my cheek, a knot on my head. Very lucky nothing was not broken, but now I have to use a cane to walk. The Talwin has taken the edge off the pain, but not taken the pain totally away. It is really hard to swallow because it is very bitter, overall it is not so bad. At first it did make me nauseous, but that is getting better now. Maybe the pain will better also! Maybe life will get better! Wouldn't that be wonderful!

This medication is the most effective I've been given for severe & chronic back pain. However, within a short period of time (less than 1 month) taking it as prescribed, it became ineffective and the dose was slightly increased. You don't HAVE to have an addiction history but severe pain that makes you think 1/2 an extra dose will make it work to relieve the pain and you will develop a dependence. I rated ease of use and overall satisfaction the lowest because of the rapid rate of speed this pain medication builds up in the body/becomes ineffective. Other pain medications either don't do that or can be switched back and forth with no danger to prevent dependence. This one can't. I had to stop taking it within 2 & 1/2 months with no substitute, until it was completely out of my system. It's an awful medication to stop when you have severe pain because it DOES work then stops so when you stop the medication (slowly) the pain it was treating feels worse than before using it. I think this drug is terrible for chronic pain patients and should be banned from treatment for chronic pain and only prescribed for very short periods of time, in patients with long term pain until they can remove that the drug builds up in the body and so fast. Use with serious caution if your pain is daily and ongoing even if you have no history of drug addiction. NAIDS work better on chronic pain.

Please let me preface that I was prescribed the generic form of this medication. I am in severe pain and have a possible back fracture. I told the orthopedic NP I saw that I am allergic to hydrcodone, but he thought I could take this. Not only did I have itching reaction I get from hydrocdone, but it also incapacitated me to the point that I was doing was sleeping. And after just three doses, I felt hot & cold simultaneously, became really restless and developed severe nausea and vomiting. I'm definitely adding this drug to my list of allergies!
