I have been on the Butrans 10mg patch for 48 hours and I do not need my Norco 10/325's as much. I have better around the clock pain management with the patch already! I was taking 3 Norco 10's a day. But now I find that when I do need them for BT pain I get no relief anymore. I wake up in the morning and do not feel as much pain now thankfully since on the 10 mg patch but I still have BT pain and the Norco does not seem to work anymore. Why does the Norco not bring my pain down while on the patch? I see so many conflicting things on here and I need a professional's answer! Please help..
