I never heard of this coming from Butrans nor even Buprenorphine, which is the opioid pain killer in Butrans. I suggest you call your doc asap because you may be having a bad reaction to this drug. Or it may not be the drug at all, but rather something else.
Do you have Hepatitis or any other Liver disease? It almost sounds like a sick Liver.
I had a similar incident. I turned a grey-like color, it looked as if I need to constantly put lotion on. Oh I am a female Native American and Black. My doctor took me off immediately and said it was a reaction and didnt want to press my luck with it. I really didnt like them anyway, I never felt like I got any relief from them.
