Is it just me and the pain I'm in or does anyone else feel like the Xtampza just isn't cutting it ! I started on 9mg every 12 hours two months ago. I at one point even filled out a DEA report and returned the medication to my doctor's office ( after spending a lot of money on it) To only have to go without it because my insurance insists it's same as others and wouldn't let me fill another type. Anyway, was put back on it, in this type of pain, I'll try try try. Now I'm getting it twice a day 13.5 mg ( equivalent to a 15mg) ...It gives me a headache and spaces me out and I can honestly say does not last 12 hours as it claims to. You can literally ( physically) feel it wear off within 8 hours and is crappy ! It is not , does not control my pain... Maybe it's just me ... anyone have feedback please. Sorry for being long winded, just wanted to be descriptive. Thanks

Hello, Jen! How are you feeling? I am very sorry about the issues you're having with this medication.

The headache and spacey feeling can be normal side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and constipation.

There is a chance that you may not be on the right dosage to help you, yet, or you may need to try a different medication. Have you ever tried Oxycontin?

Something people may not be aware of you have GOT to eat when taking this medication. That actually improves the effectiveness by 100-150%. Hope that helps!

I have a problem with the xtampza. It's a crappy pain medication. I get absolutely no relief taking it. I'm taking 27mg ER. When I tell my Dr. she acts like I'm trying to scam her into giving me more.
