Nucynta IR 

Dosage

The recommended starting dose (for people who are not currently taking opioid pain relievers) is 50 mg to 100 mg every 4 to 6 hours depending on the level of your pain.

On the second and subsequent days of treatment, the maximum total daily dose is 600 mg.

If you have been taking another opioid medication, the starting dose of Nucynta IR (Tapentadol) may be higher, depending on the dose of the other medication. Your doctor will determine the most appropriate starting dose.

Always swallow the tablet whole with sufficient liquid. You may take the tablets on an empty stomach or with meals.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Stopping the medication suddenly may cause withdrawal symptoms (such as restlessness, irritability, nausea and vomiting, Diarrhea, sweating, chills, muscle aches, or watery eyes and nose).

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Abdominal (stomach) conditions: As with other narcotic medications, Nucynta IR (Tapentadol) may make the diagnosis of abdominal conditions more difficult or it may worsen these conditions.

If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Nucynta IR (Tapentadol) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Nucynta IR (Tapentadol), and whether any special monitoring is needed. Your doctor may want to test your liver function regularly with blood tests while you are taking Nucynta IR (Tapentadol).
