I am new here so please excuse me if I am posting on the wrong area. 

I have Fibromyalgia amongst other ailments and have been put on BuTrans patches by my GP. I think they are causing the palpitations I have been experiencing over the last few days. 

Has anyone had this side effect themselves please?

Thank you in advance

    Hello Bluebell21, I hope you are better already. However that could be  something that cannot wait. I have no experience Fibromyalgia or BuTrans. You might wish to call GP asap. Good Luck

    Hi Bluebell. I agree with Kaz. Side effects do occur with lots of meds but it's best to query them with your GP. This is the depression forum but it tends go with Fibro anyway so your not far out! Try the fibro forum for more advice and friendly chat.  Ellie X confused
