Thank you. The medication is prescribed but I guess what I am trying to ask is it a medication that would cause you to test positive on a drug test. If so, then it is something I can't take even if prescribed due to my job with the FAA.

Nucynta (tapentadol) is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers. It is similar to morphine and  according to the nucynta website "NUCYNTA┬« combines opioid and nonopioid activity in one centrally acting oral analgesic." so you may fail positive for "opiates" . Don't worry, prescription excuse this fail positive , plus I think FAA pay for GC/MS confirmation testing in case you fail EMIT
