Seen doctor today who prescribed trans-bu patches and amitriptyline so felt as if something was happening at last. When I got home and read the info it stated that trans-bu must not be taken with benzodiazepines as this may cause severe breathing difficulties and can be fatal! As I am on a small dose I phoned doctor who thought it was "ridiculous" and has now prescribed dihydracodeine 30mg 2-3 times a day. Is this equal to trans-bu 5 as it seems a large dose to me? Thank you
