Butrans without the itch ?

Posted , 2 users are following.

hi everyone. Has anyone used butran patches without getting an itch or rash at the application site ? I'm not on them yet but my doctor has said it's an option to use for my chronic pain. Currently on Tramdol and paracetemol. Any success stories or advice would be great.

    Hi Jimmy

    If I don't move the patches about, the area does get a wee bit itchy, but I can't say it really bothers me very much. Not enough to not use them.

    I think as long as you use alternite areas on your body, it hopefully should be okay. I have heard of people who's skin was too itchy to use them. But I'm fine.

    Hi everyone,

    I have been on Butrans for 8 months now, and for the first few months I was fine, no itch.  But now I have an itch,and is driving me nuts.  

    Is there anyone out there who's had the same reaction?  The pain relief is not bad, about 75% better. But my skin is getting worse.  If I could get some kind of cream that would help. HELP!
