Has anyone tried Butran Patches for pain? I've been on morphine ER 30 mg for over a year and get some relief but not a lot. Of course my rheumatologist explains that with fibro our pain receptors don't work right, so we don't get the full benefits from pain meds that others would. But I also have very bad CFS, and I am very fatigued despite taking Nuvigil, so my doctor is looking to switch some of my meds that cause sedation. I am curious if anyone has tried the patches, and if so, do they work for pain relief? I'm also curious as to what I am looking at in weaning off the morphine, has anyone had any experience with this?
I would also welcome any suggestions from any other ppl that suffer from fibro and CFS. I have had it for 4 years now, I lost my job this year and lost everything else including my house. I would love to at least have some hope that maybe one day I will at least have a life, I know it will never be the life I had, but any life would be better than living in horrible pain daily. I have had to use a walker approximately 50 percent of the time to walk ever since I got serotonin syndrome eighteen months ago. I'm also not totally convinced that the doctors are not missing something, I have not met anyone with fibro as bad as I have it.
