I've had 3 spinal fusions and have severe nerve damage and SO MUCH PAIN. I've been on everything. I've been on Norco the most and was switched to butrans a week ago. I put the patch on a little over 2 days ago and feel the same. I'm so tired of this, sometimes I just want to off myself. And I'm 25, I've got forever to deal with this. Also the pharmacist said it was way better than norco, is that true?
I am so sorry that you are in so much pain! Maybe your doctor can switch you to a different narcotic because Butrans is not that strong. When I was on it, it took 3 to 5 days for it to kick in and it never lasted the full seven days that it was supposed to. Maybe your doctor could give you something for the few days after the Butrans patch wears off and before you're supposed to put on your next patch. Good luck!
