I have fibromyalgia, fused disks in my neck, and bulging disks in my lower back. My doctor prescribed 10 mcg butrans patch and norco 3 times per day. My pharmacist said that they are rarely prescribed together because they cancel each other out. Is this true?
I seen no one has answered so here it is from drugs.com interaction checker.
Talk to your doctor before using buprenorphine together with HYDROcodone. Combining these medications may reduce the analgesic effects of HYDROcodone. If you have been receiving treatment with HYDROcodone, adding buprenorphine may also cause you to experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
I hope this has helped,
