... pain and I needed more and more to deal with my pain. As of today I am up to #20 of Butrans. I have Hydrocodone but I don't know if I get any pain relief from it any more. This patch is helping a lot and I don't wake up in pain. I guess I need a pep talk from those who like the patch. I don't like how I feel (emotionally), I don't like having to worry about how hot of shower to take, or getting to hot while exercising or the hardest is not being able to be out in the sun as much as I want. I would appreciate any advice from those whom have been on the patch
