hello everyone. I am.new to this site but have been reading posts on the forum. I have been on narcotic pain medicine for so many years I cannot remember. I have epilepsy, avascular necrosis in both hips, spondylitis, asthma, pulmonary hypertension, seizures that tear my body apart, 4 surgeries on one shoulder and three on the other and need both done again, I am in hell.
My Neurologist just put me on Butrans patch 10mcg. I have had it on for 4 days and feel nothing. I am also on 5mg percocet as needed. It seems the percocet doesn't help at all now. I am getting really depressed and cry all day. I also take neurontin, ativan is what my husband makes me take if I am having seizures one after the othe, klonopin .5 at bedtime, trazadone for sleep. And none of that covers my lung meds.
Has anyone else been switched to this with success and should I just stick it out? How long should I try it? Thank you very much for and much needed help.
