I have been taking Butrans for near a year now and have placed the patches where directed: on sides of ribs and on my chest. But its now Summer in California and I want to be able to take my shirt off at the beach or just outside on a hot day. If I do so now the sun will be directly beating on my patch which is not recommended as it can release too much medication at once, and not to mention its a bit of an eyesore when trying to look good at the beach.
So I was wondering if anyone here has put the patch on their thighs or somewhere else below the waist?
I suppose I should consult my Dr and/or my pharmacist as well but I figure I'I'd ask here as well.
