With the 10mcg patch I was prescribed oxycodone 10mg IR. I was told the oxycodone is for breakthrough pain. Prior to these prescriptions I was on oxycodone 10mg IR. I was getting good relief using just the oxycodone but I usually had to take 2 pill at a time. When I took a bad fall or had increased pain I would run out early. I ran out early 3 times in a year. I have EDS and many spine problems. With this new combination of pain medication I’m not getting any pain relief.
Buprenorphine - Why am I not getting pain relief?

You need to get off the buprenephrene completely. Buprenephrene works by flooding your pain receptors with this drug, which makes it impossible for you to receive any pain relief effect from the oxycodone, And Buprenephrene was designed to only provide only about half of the pain relief you were getting from the oxycodone alone. You need to get the buprenephrene out of your system first before you will get the pain-relieving effect of the oxycodone. It takes about 3 or 5 days to get the Buprenephrene out of your system. As Bevhaus said above. Buprenephrene is designed for helping a drug addict with their addiction when they are in treatment. It was not initially designed for pain relief like oxycodone is. Your doctor should not have prescribed buprenephrene to you for your pain relief in the first place.
Buprenephrene is used to treat addiction and dependence. It is not the same as oxycodone which is a strong narcotic used to treat pain.
