Re: Anyone Ever Hear of Butrans
It has been on the market in Australia (under the name Norspan) for quite some time, its quite useful in moderate to severe chronic pain, about as usefull as moderate dosages of Oxycontin or morphine.
The sedation and "stoned" feeling should pass off ovoer a couple of weeks - if not, maybe ask your doc if you can try somthing else.
it is popular because buprenorphine is almost the holy grail of narcotic painkillers - they have atleast partly seperated the pain releiving effects from the addictive effects, creating a drug that releives pain like morphine, yet is about as addictive as codeine (ie, 3/5 of 5/8 of not much)
