Hey Judie Greeson,

The Butrans patch contain the active ingredient buprenorphine not morphine. So the medicine is buprenorphine. You can read more about this medicine at: http://xpil.medicines.org.uk/ViewPil.aspx?docid=17008

You can scroll down toward the bottom of the page for the ingredients of the patch. This is a good site to read all about the patch and its proper use.

Best wishes,

Laurie
