... but the feeling sick and being sick is almost a daily thing and is making me feel awful
The most common side effects of Butrans include: nausea • vomiting
headache • dry mouth and dizziness • itching, redness, or rash at the
constipation patch site•drowsiness, constipation (incomplete or hard bowel movements) is a very common side effect of all opioid. If the symptoms you are experiencing are intolerable, please speak to your prescribing physician. He or she may want to transition you over to a different long-acting opiate (patch or pill). In my opinion, I would avoid the patches prescribed for chronic pain altogether if possible, as there are too many spikes and side-effects in controlling pain.
I hope this information is of help to you.

I was recently prescribed Butrans patches. They are very expensive. I have a HDHP which means I pay?
