Hi there, i am currently using 20 micrograms/hour Butrans patches to ease lower abdominal pain. Mostly for the sctrotum area. I was originally on the 10's at first but after a time the pain started to creep back.
In general the patches are good, but you will experience some side effects, the most favourable one is weight loss! I have lost approximately 20 kilos, due to loss of appetite and obviously not drinking anymore.
I have the skin rash, am short of breath sometimes, hot flushes (mum would be proud) and dizziness a lot.
Each person is different, so you may get away with less side effects.
