Hi, I have been prescribed Bu Trans 20 Patches for the past 6 years. I suffer from Lupus, severe osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis and I am in constant chronic pain. I find that the patch only works for approximately 4 days and I am in withdrawals for the remaining three days, i.e. sweating, stomach cramps, joint and muscle pain, sleeplessness, depression etc. I hate being on this patch and I dread the last 3 days of every week. My doctor wants me to start on Fentanyl 50 patches every 3 days. I do not want to go down that road as I have read extensively about Fentanyl and how difficult it is to get off it. I have decided to go cold-turkey off Bu-Trans and find some other methods of pain relief. I know the withdrawal symptoms may be severe but I have really had it with opiate therapy. Can anyone advise me how to get through the withdrawal symptoms?
