I have chronic pain in my lower back for a little over a year now , I have had several steroid injections that didn't help at all.. Loratab 7.5 then oxycudone 10 they both make me feel very sick with flu like systems but I have to take them to get any relief as the pain is so bad.. I have been bedridden for most of this past year except occasionally I may have a few hours of pain relief without being sick.. Pain management Dr. Is starting me on Butrans 10 patch today and I am so scared I am going to have a worse reaction to this drug... I also have COPD and panic attacks that I take Zanex .25 or I mg... I have tried Ultram and it make me very sick... Do any of you have a problem taking pain meds if so wondering if this Butrans patch going to do the same... Sorry for rattling on and on I haven't had any sleep due to pain and did not want to take Oxycudone as I plan on starting patch today.. My pain meds do not make me feel good they keep me bedridden as I feel so sick and I can't sleep... Oxycudone does get rid of the pain.. I have been on them for about 3 months...
