    I was prescribed the Butrans patch. Has anyone else tried this for Fibro or pain?

    Thank you...

    It did zip. It was like having nothing on and I couldn't sleep. I went back to fentanyl.

    Oh, well. If you had been on a pure agonist before (fentanyl), I'm not surprised buprenorphine (a partial agonist) didn't help. Doses are hard to match between these two kinds of drugs. Best of luck.
