Patients talikng this, should not drive or operate XXXXXXX machinery unless they are tolerant to the effects of Nucynta. Do not drink alcohol while you are using Nucynta. XXXXXXX side effects or death can occur when alcohol is combined with tapentadol(Nucynta). ​Due to its mu-opioid agonist activity, Nucynta may be expected to have additive effects when used in conjunction with alcohol, other opioids, or illicit drugs that cause central nervous system depression, respiratory depression, hypotension, and profound sedation, coma or death.
