mom2calebnmacee posted:
I was prescribed the BuTrans patch last Tuesday (5mcg/hr). I placed the patch at 7:30 that night. But Thursday I had a headache. By Friday and Saturday it was worse. By Sunday is was terrible and by Monday it was unbearable. My head was pounding like it had when I used to have terrible migraines as a child. I finally pulled the patch off Monday morning to see if this was the cause of the headache. It has not gone away but has since gotten 90% better. I was also experiences strong muscle Pain in my calves (as if I had just done strenuous workouts yesterday and was feeling it today). I'm having trouble going down the stairs because of it.
