This is a website that might help you. https://www.drugs.com/answers/how-long-does-it-take-butrans-patch-to-reach-its-418364.html
Has she been on any other pain meds like vicodine, oxycodone, percocet, etc? They just changed me to the patch from oxy and it's been a week and I feel like I am going to die. I have chronic lower back pain, have had back surgery for a herniated disc and still have 2 bulged discs. As soon as I can get back to my PM doctor they can have these crappy patches back and give me my real pain meds back so I can get my quality of life back. I hope this is not to harsh or upfront but I spent 18 months without sleep and no quality of life before they operated on my back and I understand where you are coming from, good luck and I hope you have better luck with the patches than I did.
