Norspan Patches
2 Replies RSS
I am currently using Norspan patches for the treatment of chronic pain, I am moving to Beijing China and dont know if I can have this medication prescribed in China. Is Norspan available in Beijing China? ## Norspan contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine, a very potent narcotic used to treat severe, chronic pain. And, as to what's available in China, I am sorry, but I can't find any information on it. Most other countries are not regulated as strictly as the U.S. and Canada, so it can be very difficult to find such information. Have you tried asking your doctor or pharmacist if they have any information? ## Jane says that she has since heard from the pharmaceutical company and they have advised that Norspan is not available in China. Thanks for your replies. ...

I have been on norspan patches 20mg for 18 months. I have ended up with tinnitus. could you please tell me how to get off norspan ## After 17 months of Norspan use I too concur regard tinnitus and its getting louder. BUT I have had "industrial deafness" for close enough to 30 years anyway and this constant screaming has been so much a part of my life I had all but accepted it. I am finding that the patches are only lasting me 5 days and not 7 as designed. I cannot take pills due to the other meds I must take for the heart valve and diabetes. Its some balancing act trust me. I am tired of it and would dearly like to find a different way to control my arthritic pain. My Doc has prescribed 2 sizes of patches and we are about to try 20ug first and a 5ug some 3 or 4 days later in an ... ...

norspan to fentanyl patch
12 Replies RSS
hi ive been on a norspan patch (15mg) for some months. methadone tablets before that for some yrs post lower back fusion, S1-L5 in 2003. the norspan patch has not covered the pain control so my specialist ordered an MRI and now I have a protruding disc at L4. this was to be expected I was told due to the extra workload on my lower back. I have been given the fentanyl patch and told that it will be increasing next visit but I was not told to just stop the norspan or ween off slowly? Due to constant itching on the norspan Im coming off at 5mg/week anyway but not sure if now I should just take patch off and be done with it? I do not want to if possible go thru to many withdrawal symptoms? Thanks for any answers ## I am in a similar situation. Have been taking norspan 20mg for over 12 month... ...

Stopping Norspan patches
4 Replies RSS
I had a 5 mcg patch for one good I have had a 10mcg patch for 3 days..still have pain but have side affects badly I want to stop using them. Please give me a run down on how to come off slowly: as in.. can I replace the 10 with a five , for how long, what next ## Hello, Graham! How are you? How long have you been using any type of opiate pain relief, such as this? If you've been taking opiates for a long period of time, then you'll likely need to taper very slowly to minimize the possible withdrawal symptoms and rebound effects, as directed by the FDA. However, if this is the first one you've tried and you've not been on it for that long, you won't need such a long, gradual taper. The FDA lists this as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to b... ...

how long does norspan patch take to work
1 Reply RSS
I forgot to change my Norspan patch on Saturday and it's Tuesday. It's only a 5mg one but I wanted to know how long it will take before I feel some relief. I know it takes 3 days to get to the consistent level but just wondering how quickly it will start working. ## It should start working shortly after applying the patch, but as you have already stated, it may take a few days for it to reach its full level of efficacy. The NIH warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? ...

Transfer From Norspan To Durogesic Side Effects
2 Replies RSS
Help, I have been taking norspan 20mg for approx 15 months. Thus is for sacroiliitis and 3 herniated discs plus one completely squashed disc. Six months ago, I had the squashed disc removed and a spine fusion to correct a spondylothesis. Fusion at l5/s1. This is my 2nd fusion (aged 42) my first one at aged 13. I found lately the norspan isn't holding the pain so my doc changed me to durogesic 12mg. The first 5 days were insane, shivers, restlessness and unable to relax. I am now 2 weeks in and although most of the symptoms have passed, I still get incredibly restless in the evening (in my arms) and I can't relax which makes my pain worse. How long will this feeling last? Am I best giving up and going back to norspan? HelP ## Norspan contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine, ... ...

Could you please advise the daily use of this medication Lyrica combined with Norspan Patch 5 mcg/hr 4. Side affects and the driving of motor vehicles? ## Hello, Nathan! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. As to driving, they can both cause some sedation, dizziness and drowsiness as listed by the FDA as possibly side effects, so taking them together may worsen that, thus it's best not to drive, until you're sure how they make you feel. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Norspan Pain Patch and after bariatric surgery pain relief
1 Reply RSS
I'm on Norspan 20mg patches (7 day release). I am scheduled to go for bariatric (gastric sleeve) surgery and was wondering what pain relief I can be given/ask for (Pethidine is obviously out as Norspan is an opiate antagonist, but tramadol may work, but is not as strong as pethidine) ## I'm really not sure what all is available for you to use. Have you discussed it with your doctor? It might be necessary for you to stop the Norspan for awhile, before surgery, so other pain medications can be used. In the U.S. in hospital settings, the most commonly used medication is Dilaudid, which contains the potent narcotic analgesic Hydromorphone: ...

narcotic pain patches that start with n
1 Reply RSS
HEY DOES ANYBODY KNOW ANY PAIN PATCHES THAT START WITH THE LETTER N ## Hi Wormie, Based on my research, Norspan patch (buprenorphine) is the only relevant match I'm finding that begins with a letter N. The manufacturer advertises it towards treating chronic severe pain when lower doses of strong opioids are being considered. However, further notes from the Rational Assessment of Drugs and Research (RADAR) suggest that more familiar opioids such as morphine are generally more preferred for managing chronic pain since they also tend to offer a broader range of dosages and formulations. I hope this helps! ...

Replacement for Targin
4 Replies RSS
Hello, I live in Australia and wondered if anyone could suggest an alternative to Targin 10/5 mg twice a day, morn & night. I have been taking this for nearly two years. I have a really severe reaction to it, the worst being the itching at night which often prevents me from sleeping at all. I believe it is the codeine in the drug that cause this as the same reaction occurred in the past when taking oxycodeine. I have tried Norspan patches but they are very hard to keep on in our climate as it is so hot in Perth, also they wear off after the second day and don't work anymore on me unfortunately. I have told my doctor about this on more than one occasion and as the reaction is 'itching' he dismisses it and says to put up with it. I use it because I have Anyklosing Spondaly... ...
