I have sickle cell anemia and my Dr just put me on the butran 5mg patch and I was wondering does it work well for us sickle cell patients and how long does it take before it starts working I've been taking norco for awhile and it doesn't seem to help so he put me on this patch and I wanted to know does it help sickle cell pain
The Butrans patch should ideally help you! It works round the clock to help your pain, it should kick in within 12 hours, you should begin to feel the benefits by then.
I'm truly hoping this helps your pain, it's a great chronic pain reliever. Be careful and follow directions as it is a narcotic, as you know, I'm sure.
Best wishes to you,
