... being able to move from extreme weakness and pain, I tried the patch and I started walking and moving again. I called it a miracle drug. Now I'm allergic to something with the patch and am not allowed to wear it anymore. My energy and muscles are weak and I am just about back to where I was. The doctor put me on ritaline and percacet, but I'm very anxious and sort of "loopy". Is there a good alternative to the butrans patch that is as long lasting as the patch? I would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you
