This Phase 3, double-blind, randomized, multi-center trial examined the efficacy, safety and tolerability of multiple doses of tapentadol IR in 603 post-surgical bunionectomy patients. Participants were randomly assigned (1:1:1:1:1) to receive tapentadol IR 50, 75, or 100 mg, oxycodone 15 mg, or placebo and the primary efficacy endpoint was the sum of their pain intensity differences at 48 hours. Secondary endpoints included sum of pain intensity differences at 12, 24, and 72 hours.
