My butrans patch is only lasting 5 days? It's fantastic & works wonders for my pain that I have had for 20 years, I've had all the tablets under the sun so it's like a miracle to me... This last for 5 days only, I've noticed other people that are on them are having the same problem... Has anyone come to some sort of solution to this problem? Thank you for your help
I agree that the butrans patch does not last for me either. I tried it and didn’t like it. I’m now on the Fentanyl patch and am annoyed because mine is for 72 hours instead of 48 I would normally ask my doc to switch it to every 48 hours but I’m on a good breakthrough med so I can make it. But yes in short these patches don’t always work the same for everyone. I would discuss this with your doctor he might know something you can do or you should be taking a breakthrough or rescue med to help when the pain breaks through your patch. Best of luck and feel better!
