    Am sure they are, i believe in the Netherlands its a schedule 2 and schedule 3 every way else.
    I have also read my Transtec pain patch is a schedule 2 due to the amount is given.
    To be really honest, Am not really sure myself to be honest. wikipedea??? Buprenorphine and you will see what they come in.
    But please speak to a doctor first, as they are used for pain and for people with opioid habbits.
    Hence while you read about it, they are several different ones.

    Thanks for the info. And don't worry, I do this through a doctor. I have chronic pain. Which is brilliant while trying to live a normal life

Are there any reasonable alternatives or ideas anyone has that I can suggest? I see him again in a few days. I'm just not going to mention it if there's a risk of losing it. The pain is so much better now, I can't bear the thought of losing that.
    Hey there. I read through so I hope I did not miss a mention of this but is it possible to try another manufacturer/generic? Perhaps the adhesive is different.

    I was on that patch but it was not enough sadly for me. I do use a fentanyl patch and I get some redness at times, sometimes I get it from tapes I use at times. Whether it's Tegaderm or Askina (mylan supplied). It seems to be something beyond just the adhesive. Probably a combination of things.

    I have to use the tape as I do "Watsu" and other aquatic therapy. I don't want them to wash off. Not a good situation since they are schedule II for mine.

    I have seen folks that simply cannot use patches. I've read others that had to do tweaks and used some type of skin product that helped. I don't recall but I went through MANY MANY forums about spine problems and pain patches.

    Personally I am glad my patch helps me some and I don't need as many pills. I just don't like the hot water pool I go to for my therapy and try to keep my patch out of the water- I realize overall body heat is a problem too.

    Best wishes.

    I have done some research and it doesn't seem there's a different adhesive to this particular from what I can see. I might underplay the seriousness of the rash and see if my doctor suggests an alternative. I know I don't need a stronger med (thankfully and I'm sorry for your situation) and many on these other butrans forums suggest the fentanyl patch because it's three days. But I don't want that. And I also think you need to be under a PM clinic for that which I don't have the ability to do. So a bit more research is in my future and probably a lot more red square marks on my body :/. I'll only give it up if it starts to blister wherever I put it, basically. It helps to much to just give up on.

  7. Re driving on the patch: The substances contained in pain patches are on the list of drugs to test for (Fent, Bupe, etc.) should an incident occur. Make sure you know how the meds affect you before you start driving and make sure you have a valid Rx. If you get into an accident where liability must be assessed and they pull a tube of your blood for toxicology you could be in a lot of trouble if your paperwork is not in order.

    I hope this helps.

    Ive been on bupe for 10+ years. I think you should just ask for tablets, really. Ive tried all the usa kinds of tablets, film, and patches (but not the 1 month long injection), and tablets beat them all. At least for me. They are also the cheapest here.
    If I were you Id get tabs and make a solution in 50% ethanol and water. Then use volumetric dosing that way, if you want to keep your dose super low. Keeping plasma levels up has never been an issue for me, bupe has a 37 hour half life. I think you could get away with once a day to 3 times max.
    Just some suggestions. I always hated the patches. Other countries offer smaller doses on pill form, so maybe you wouldnt have to do anything but sublingual half or a quarter of a pill.
    Hope this helps. Any bupe questions Im happy to answer, I think Im somewhat qualified when it comes to this drug.

    Before switching, you may want to check to see if the adhesive or the possibly a latex compound is in both patches. Which would mean the Fent patch would cause the allergy too.

    See I take norco which barely cuts it. I mean it really doesn't. But don't you need to go to PM for oxy? I don't have the ability to do that, logistically. Probably Fent would require that too, plus it's too strong. I need to be mentally aware at all times.
    @TiredMouse, please do consider mentioning this to the doctor. But, before you do, have you tried using aloe vera gel (or a colloidal silver salve, often used to treat burns) on the location where the patch was, after you've removed it? (And I guess it goes without saying, try to place the next patch in a different location, while you try to let the skin heal from the previous patch.) It sounds like you are allergic to the adhesive itself, which is a not-infrequent side effect.

    Bottom line, if you can deal with the irritation/treat it in-between placing the patch on the same place, then that would be the best approach for you. But if aloe (or some other, similar skin-irritation treatment product) doesn't seem to work, or if the reaction gets worse, then it may be time to bite the bullet, call your doctor and try a different painkiller-delivery method. Patch-based meds have to use an adhesive, and if you can't tolerate the adhesive, then you'll have to return to a less helpful method of getting your meds.

    I am so sorry this is happening to you, allergies to meds and to products can be a real PITA to try to live with, or live through!

    Peace.

    I think not. Also there is a subcutaneous rod they implant above your buttock that releases bupe for a long period of time. I have a friend thats got that one.

    Spray the area you are going to apply the patch with Flonase or Fluticasone nasal spray and let dry. Then apply the patch, helps with the allergic reaction of the skin and adhesive. Helps the itch tremendously and the welt after you take it off.

  13. i recently had some skin cancer frozen off and had to wear band-aids for a week. after a few days i broke out in a rash and then had the red image of the band-aids imprinted on my skin. i guess i developed a sudden allergy to adhesive. it was bad enough having a band-aid on my forehead for a week: then i had the stigmata of one for two weeks more. lol.

    And that is why I only buy latex free bandaids. Cost a little more but totally worth it.
