BuTrans is a treatment for moderate pain and contains a painkiller called buprenorphine.

BuTrans patches come as a beige-coloured square or rectangular patch with a sticky backing. The BuTrans patch is worn on the upper torso and upper, outer arm where it provides a continuous, day and night release of buprenorphine that lasts for a full 7 days.

 

BuTrans patches come in 4 strengths, and your healthcare professional will decide which strength will suit you best.

During your treatment, your healthcare professional may change your patch to a smaller or larger one as necessary, or prescribe you a combination of two patches to find the right individual dose for you.
