Butran pain patch

Postby texassyrinx2 » Sat Sep 27, 2014 7:29 pm

Ok first I want to say hello. I have not been on the board for some time. I have had a relatively good go for about a year and then a really bad flair up as I call it. Tremendous pain, burning, unbearable at times. It has really made life difficult. My pain specialist finally insisted I go on a pain patch. I am getting relief at last but am nervous about using a 7 day patch 15 mcg. Is anyone else using the butran patch? I don't seem to be having any side effects yet. It has only been a couple of weeks. I have way more energy than I did taking the Narco and the tramadol and lyrica. I am only taking the patch, a new pain cream he had compounded for me and a TENs unit. I am still taking my seizure Meds but that is it. I am off all the other meds I took for so long.

I would like to hear from anyone who has some experience with this type of patch. I have been diagnosed for over 23 years so I have tried a lot of different meds. I tend to be very sensitive to narcotics so I have been resistant to trying anything like this before. But the pain just got too bad this time. I wonder if I will have a problem if I want to discontinue this in the future. I don't know how one weans off a patch?

Any advise is welcomed even if it is negative. I want to hear the truth!
