I have just been prescribed the pain patches BuTrans. In 5mg per hour does. Lowest I think. They have had no effect on my pain, but I have had no side effects either(I dont think!). I am not due back to see Dr. until next week to review, when I can obviously ask to up the dose. But what experience have others had with pain patches and can I take anything else with them? I have read the enclosed leaflett, but no where can I see that you can or cant take anything like paracetamol with them. Better go to pharmasist I think and ask. I like the idea of these weekly patches as I then don't forget to take my medication (strange as that sounds when you are in pain!) and you get a controlled even dose. But just wonder if they do work. XX
