BuTrans Patches – negative effects – thinking of stopping taking them
I have been on BuTrans patches for year for pain alleviation for my hip.
I should have had a hip replacement on 30 July 2014 but had heart that is 4th on 16 July 2014 so obviously the operation ended up being terminated. (I fractured my hip 28 years back in a horse riding accident and have managed with out a replacement op till now – pain was really bad last year) i’ve been in medical center during the last week and had been discharged yesterday – we have lost almost 2st in fat during the last year. I’m nauseous all the time don’t have any appetite, i am shakey and p r and dizzy. I have been trying to carry on and can get on with life but have had chest problems which is angina caused by the fact myself to get up and eat etc and my heart is struggling that I am so weak I’m forcing. Hospital aren’t able to find out what exactly is incorrect with me – they’ve tried a number of tests including a human anatomy scan and just about explained to start it – I have actually rehad personal worker calling day-to-day to aid me personally. Medication we’m on for my heart is Ivabradine to slow my heart down and Isosorbide to open my arteries, Clopideral and asprin to thin my bl d and Ezetmebe in the place of a statin. Hopsital say heart medicine ought not to provide me personally the observable symptoms I’m getting so just other thing could be the patches. Has someone else had comparable symptoms. What will happen if we stop using the spots – I’m desparate i am going to try such a thing I hate feeling so sick i simply want some lighter moments. I am a young 68 and participate in loads of groups and social activities – hospital want me to just take anti-depressants but I’m maybe not depressed as well as concerned them t if I put more chemicals (tablets) in my systom, my body has also to get used to! Feedback is really gratefully gotten. Thanks – Eunice
Well ill you can simply take my advice whichever way you would like but I might really hope that whichever you select that things improved for you s n.
we began butrans that are taking in 2007, we have arthritis all over basically and I likewise have Fibromyalgia. We started on the spots at 5mg and reach 20mg.after having hip replacements etc. as the full years have Gone by my entire life has simply deteriorated so much that I now don’t really have one. I happened to be section of a really large family but they just quit on me personally. I provided my children that are own into the. 30’s, we have my lovely husband whom tolerates a great deal from me and my illnesses. although our marriage has suffered greatly during the arms of most my signs we’re nevertheless together although things are somewhat strained. I’ve for quite some time experienced a certain amount of chronic fatigue and sleeplessness and quite often it would be actually bad. But about 4 years ago I became struck with a bus and even though my accidents weren’t life threatening we have just got worse since that occurred. The pain is controlled to a degree but my chronic fatigue simply got slowly even worse once the years went on. I additionally, a couple of years ago started initially to suffer extremely badly from Peripheral Nuropathy in the base of my legs and f t. I stopped making the home completely and just relied on my children to continue without me. No energy, no sleep but therefore chronically exhausted. I aged a great deal in this time. My fat gain of over 2 stone had been making life even harder it was increasing the pain for me as.
Just 14 days ago. I made the decision to have a thorough examine my medicines and research each one independently to see if it absolutely was feasible that any one of them could be to blame for many of my mound of dilemmas. The other there it was, hitting me right in the face day. my ButransPatches. Seriously, I obtained such a shock to see the side that is possible and I appeared to have a lot of them. Now the things I am going to let you know isn’t advisable and I also am maybe not suggesting it is done by you. I made the decision that the only way We was going to know was to not make use of the spots anymore but because my suffering is for so long I was perhaps not prepared to be weaned off of the spots. So I ripped my 20mg patch off there then. I did not understand what would be to come, it was known by me could be bad but I’d to simply take the opportunity. That has been two weeks ago. I am now a totally different person. My insomnia disappeared overnight and my chronic tiredness within a couple of days. The nuropathy in my own feet remains I have every confidence it will go totally with me to a degree but. I might should continue and on to share with you simply exactly how mant symptoms We had that have been going away since tearing that spot off. I have been given my entire life back. Here are are just some of my symptoms which have now either totally gone or remain going.
low bl d suger
serious vision issues.
High bl d pressure
painful throat (cervical)
intolerance to alcohol
perspiring defectively all the time.
i possibly could get on forever. In my eyes these patches are horrific things and I also prefer to the pain sensation it self than no life at all. I’m controlling the pain the a degree with co-coda mol. Quite doses that are high.
As I say i could just inform you my tale however you must make-up your own personal brain. I will be only a couple of weeks on and I am a brand new woman.
Oh by the way I will be 65 yrs . old and feel I now have future.

I will be 68 and only retired in March with this year. I have for ages been positive and outgoing i can not believe how negative I feel. I have consented to get in a medical house for just two months so they can help me get stronger – I just cant bear to see my lovely child crying because she can’t help me personally.
There is just one concern in what you published in my experience – Be careful with co-codomol they also contain opium as perform some the BuTrans patches – attempt to wean yourself off them when you can and head to paracetamol only.
Please retain in touch since it does help whenever you can be in contact with some body with comparable problems.
