Has anyone tried BuTrans patch?

My dr has just prescribed butrans patch for me as my pain is way out of control. I currently take 30-40mgs norco a day, it has worked great for about 5 years. Recently my pain level has shot up and is 24/7. I'm not comfortable taking so many pills, and I don't want to increase them. I am afraid of oxy, etc. I have tried the neuro drugs, worked for about 2 hrs after I would take them, then nothing. I think I may be in a little bit of denial about how bad it has gotten. For the first time in years, it is affecting my life/ job. Been in this position? Afraid to take the next step but sick of the pain at the same time???
Thanks!

Re: Has anyone tried BuTrans patch?

Hi Mazie22 I am on buTrans patch and it is working for me. I take 10mu a week. This replaced morphine and a 150mg of lyrica. So daily I take 60mg of cymbalta, 450mg of lyria. I do get pain attacks in the evening and through the nite, for that I take oxicodent. It takes some time to get in your system. It's nice that it replaces PILLS. You have to rotate where you put the patch as it can't go on the same spot for 3 weeks. i wish I had found the patch sooner. take care June
