Nucynta ER useless

I am a doctor who treats and "enjoys" a chronic pain problem. My PCP suggested nucynta. We tried it for several months, and I tried it on some of my patients.

From OxyContin 40mg 3x day to Nucynta ER 200mg 2x day

Last year I was put on the Opana which made me sick, throwing up every time I took it. The insurance approved me again to the OxyContin. This year it was denied so I am on the Nucynta ER 200mg 2x's a day. I have had 2 Cervical Fusions leaving me with a plate & 15 screws in my neck. I've had a Reverse Right Shoulder Replacement. I have also had 14 Lumbar Surgeries. I know they put a cage in & fusions. The last surgery the doctor cut my whole back open. I have been back to his office 1 time after falling 2 days after coming home. I saw his PA not the doctor who did this surgery. I've not been b...
