I have been on pain meds such as darvoset, mussle relaxers, lortabs and ect for years for chronic pain in my back mostly after my first surgery in 1996 now i need and have needed another surgery for the disc next to the other one . My pain doctor just put me on Butrans patch 5 days ago. I feel like i am living again it is WONDERFULL i feel no pain . Life is great but as the old saying goes if it is too good to be true it probably is . Is this the case ? Is their any future risk ? Anything i don"t know ? please tell me . I hope it"s all good but want to know if their is bad. Thanks in advance
