Question about the Butrans patch...

My pain doc. wants to switch me to the patch at my next app. She has tried oxycontin 20's with percocet 10/325 3x daily. Kadian with percocet, and a few others. She just changed the percocet 10's to roxi 15's, and they seem to be working pretty well. I was just wondering if any of you guys have tried the patch yet, as it's still fairly new. I have a natural high tolerance to opiates for some reason. She says that I am too young to be started on Fentanyl, and I agree. Actually I am her youngest patient by far (22). She is a great doctor who really listens. She looks at my issues rather than my age.

I know Butrans is somewhat similar to Suboxone. Would that mean I could not have a breakthrough med. with it??? Does it really last the entire 7 days that they say it's supposed to. Are the side effects similar to other opoids???? I trust her to work with me and make the right decision regarding my pain management, I just want to be a little more educated about it before I start using it. Again, if anyone has tried it let me know how it works for you. Also if you have tried it what did you switch to it from??? How does it compare to your previous pain meds??? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, and sorry if this has been posted before.....

Wishing well to everyone
