    Hello you may have decided to use The Patch by now as it's 10 days ago you posted

    Did you try the Patch?

    I had 5mg Butrans Patch very reluctant to try but So so glad I have

    It helped me with Severe Arthritis Side Effects Minimal eat plenty of Fibre and drink plenty

    Of Water Etc

    First 3 days felt bit light headed but that's all

    Suggest you start on A Day/Weekend where you can "Chill"

    Hope this helps anyway if it doesn't agree just take it off 😀

    Good Luck

      Hi. Thank you for your reply.

      No I still haven't started them - still to scared. I'm taking Pregamblin 700mgs daily for pain relief - though the pain clinic assured me they are OK to combine.

      Been on 5mg for 3 wks and it's made no difference to my pain level - if anything worsened. Took if off this morning after having another horrendous night of hallucinations, nausea and hot sweats.

      Can't get Drs as Bank Holiday today - probably not the brightest thing to do just removing it.. x

    i started on 5mcg for chronic back pain and gradually gone up to 20mcg but had to reduce to 10mcg as I was so sleepy but have made a huge difference to my pain,  infact I'm now very reluctant to come off as I can get up and move and without them I can't do anything.  I would try them.. good luck let us know.
