I was kind of wondering how breakthrough meds could be taken with the "patch". It dose make sense that because the patch is a time released low dosing of the medication that its not enough to create a significant blockaid effect.
I would still think the dosing of break through pain meds would be limited though since bupre is fairly potent even at lower doses?
PS - I had considered requesting a trail of it when I was having a long lasting pain spike. However, I have a sleeping issue (sleep walking to put it mildly) and I feel it could interfere with said condition. I have to becareful not to take my current medication too close to bedtime for this reason.
Has anyone using this noticed an effect on their sleep?
MRI revealed disc bulge and test injections revealed RA. Radio Freq procedures helped for months, but pain is up and im having the procedure done again. Currently on 75 mgs of Nucynta (tapentadol - A MOR + NRI) 2 to 3 time per day and Soma 350 as needed.
