The TDDS is a "Butrans" 15 mcg/hour. I had an inappropriate urine tox 4 weeks after beginning treatment. The Butrans did not show up in the results. Or does anybody know of any other reason this might happen?
I have been on the Butrans 10mcg/hr patch for about 8 months now. I have had the same problem with it not showing up. My doc asked me about it and I showed her the patch as I was wearing it. For the last couple of months it is not showing on my urine as well. At first it did but the last couple it has not. I find in using the patch I don't get any real relief from it until about the 2-3 days after I place it on. I don't find it works for the 7 days either. I have asked my doctor about using a heating pad for my chronic pain in my back and she said that is fine with the patch. Even though it says you should not. The only thing I can possibly think of is that it is absorbed too fast on some months or maybe after being on it for an amount of time it doesn't stay in our system as long as they say it should. Don't know if this helped but just wanted to let you know that you are not the only one this has happened too.
