    I just started on a Butrans patch after using Tramadol for about 8 or 9 months. I am also on a 400mg a day dose of Celebrex and am taking Plaquenil. Everything up to the patch helped a bit - more obviously if I didn't take them. Rather than feeling relief, I just don't hurt as badly. I started the patch at 5mcg a week ago. It didn't do much and the doctor said I could double up th ... Show Full Comment

    I have had chronic pain due to a very physical profession, OA,Bursitus, disk degeneration, etc. Have been taking 35 mg. oxycodone for a couple of years, and needed more, so my Doctor put me on 20 mcg/hour.

    Had hip surgery in 2008 and spinal fusion in 2010. L4-S1. Just started the patch yesterday. Can't give a review on the effectiveness since I just started.

As far as the pain relief I need to wait a few more days to be fair to t ... Show Full Comment
