My son has been on the higher Transtec buprenorphine patch 52.5mcg for 3 weeks now and is having losts of side effects.
The more severe ones are ...
Severe Jurking - not in control of limbs shooting up in the air/ hand hitting face - finding hand gripped to face when waking from a light sleep and not being able to pull it away,leaving scratch marks where nails have dug into skin.
Very irritable, loosing temper.
Hasn't slept for more than 2 hrs at night fpr the last 2 weeks.
I am wandering if these patches can cause Myoclonus as the jerks are so acute. My son will be seeing his doctor on Thurday and I'm thinking will be eventually taken off the patches and put back onto tramadol as the pain he is suffering hasn't changed from one medication to the other.
