Well, It's cetainly effective for treating pain. It's not meant for opiate addicts who generally
have too great a tolerance. When you say you think it's great, what exactly do you mean? You didn't give us much to go on.


Best wishes,
Godfrey

We here have suggested it for those who are tapering down from Suboxone and have trouble getting into the micro doses. It is a good tool for those who choose it.

Rule, I think you might have it right. I couldn't quite wrap my aging mind around it...

Hey Rule,
Good Afternoon! Totally get its a great taper tool. The Butrans patch too. but bc they're not legal for Dr's to prescribe these meds for addiction (such a dumb rule), for pain but not addiction, will bup Drs accept patient's requesting it? Ohh maybe the Dr's don't know its not approved for addiction...or instead can code the diagnosis for pain? Also wondering how insurance companies will accept it... for same reason. Crazy rules!! Best! Peli

Ok thanks. I read the forum daily(on phone app) but do not comment much. I must have missed it being mentioned here and thought I'd bring it up. I had never heard of it before. Godfrey- By saying great I mean a great tool to those in pain or tapering--FYI sorry I don't comment much but I have been on sub for close to 8 years now. I am currently on 12mg. Y'all be safe!!

After my painful surgery 5 years ago, I was off Suboxone and taking Hydrocodone again. My GP sent me to a pain management doctor who then prescribed the Butran's patch in the 20 mcg dose. It did keep my withdrawals at bay but I felt better going on to my Suboxone right after that. The pain doctor told me he didn't approve of anyone being on Suboxone. What an idiot.

So that is why I know about it. And FYI, when I stopped my Suboxone before surgery I was only on 1 mg so my tolerance wasn't too bad. High enough to not get pain relief but now I know better and won't stop my Suboxone if I ever need surgery again.
