- I have been on 10 mcg patch for 6 months due to herniated discs. I have started having withdrawal symptoms on 5th and 6th day of patch. I become depressed, sweat profusely, and experience increase in pain. Is this normal??
No I would not say it is because although I haven't been on Butrans but have been on fentanly. With Fentenyl the manufacture says to change patches every 72hrs but my doctor seemed(I didn't say anything to suggest this either) to know that they didn't last 72hrs & let me change it every 48hrs which worked well. I'd ask your doc to either raise the a higher dose or let you change yours every 48hrs. Good luck.
