The bupe patches (5mcg) didn't work for me. They put me on it first for my ankylosing spondylitis, but it was marginally better than a lidocaine patch haha. I'm glad to hear it works for other people though. I was really surprised when my doc put me on it first thing in pain management. Now that I'm on hydrocodone, I don't have to pay like 250$ per month for meds and my pain is some what in check (I don't think anything will ever totally work). My bf took my used patches by cutting off the matrix and putting them in his mouth, which he was definitely effected by since he has 0 opiate tolerance. I can't imagine them being that good for anyone wanting to use it for a high, unless they are opiate naive, depending on the dose.
