I have been on 15 mcgs patches for 5 weeks and they don't seem to work anymore. I have a vascular leg ulcer which is taking ages to heal but the breakthrough pain is horrendous. I'm getting no sleep at all. My GP took me off tramadol and codeine to try these but the pain is unbearable. I've tried cocodamol (over the counter dosage) and naproxen but it doesn't help at all.

Unfortunately, this medication does not work for everyone to alleviate pain.

The U.S. FDA does warn that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

Have you ever tried any other more potent opiates, such as Oxycodone or Morphine?

I was taken off tramadol and OxyCodone and put on these patches. They told me these were stronger and safer then the meds. The patches worked 1 week. I called pharmacy and RN to see if I could take pain pills with the patch and they said yes. The next month they put me on 15 mg. I started on Sunday with no relief but Friday no pain.Not sure what is going on!!!
