Comment:
After using Actiq for 5 or 6 years I found it to be fast acting and very effective. Without it I can barely function. Due to a failed spine fusion I have severe nerve damage. On days when the pain is only something another sufferer can understand Actiq does work when nothing or a combination of treatments will not work. My clinic changed doctors and I was told that the DEA does not allow it to be ... Show Full Comment

I've suffered terribly with chronic low back pain for nearly 15 years, even after failed surgery to relieve it. I was given Actiq to try along with my long acting med. This is the ONLY drug I've used that gave relief enough to be able to get up and move within my own home. With it I can walk and without it I can barely get out of bed or even think of walking within my home. I'm so than ... Show Full Comment
