Iv'e been using Methadone for 8 months now and my Doc's say it's the strongest oral med to use. It's not that effective but they keep telling me that it's the best. Now they have added Butrans 5m and post dated for 10mcg for next month. I haven't put one on yet cause I'm a little worried about all the warnings with it. I have at least 9 medical terms wrong with my spine/back, and can't even get up in the am sometimes.They also give me a small amount of Norco thats suppose to last a month but I just go through those really fast, suppose to take 2- 2x's/day i use 6 or 7 easy..Just wondering if I can use this patch with the Methadone?
