Headaches on Tapentadol?
I’ve just started Tapentadol ER 100mg x2 3 weeks ago from spine problems, chronic migraines, and CRPS. I had been on fentanyl patches 37.5mcg for several years, doing wonderfully with a healthy quality of life, but my insurance company kicked me off of them - I’m in USA and apparently they want me on abuse-deterrent opioids no matter how detrimental or the monetary cost.
Since I started Tapentadol, I have had a crushing headache. Not a migraine, just feels like a car sitting on top of my head.
Has anyone experienced this and had it go away as your body became accustomed to the medication?
