The receptors are in the brain but a localised anaesthetic like action may occur from the area the drug is being absorbed.i did noticed when taking the temgesic (sublingual buphrenorphine) a slight numbng sensation, but only one way to find out :woohoo: also any bruising or inflammation will be generating heat and or having blood vessels which have burst ( bruising) may cause the drug to be absorbed in larger quantities than normal because of the close proximity of blood vessels to the patch,causing the patch to wear off quicker...this is all just speculation, but it makes sense to me hahaha.good luck and hope it works for you!!

Jamie, how does that work? Targin is oxycodone blended with naloxone (which eases the constipation).

Unlikely, uless you're also including a local anaesthetic!

Probably a side effect due to the quantity of med being adsorbed in such a short time. Dumping a patch at this rate might well be a one way trip :ohmy:

It will also speed up the adsorption of the meds so they hit you quicker, hit you harder and wear off sooner.

In the uk the lowest strength is 52.2 and the highest is 70 micrograms . And their changed twice a week. But the spaz Aussie norspan , which is crap only last 4-5 days max but they still say 7 days so your left in agony for the rest of the week. I'm going to the gp and demanding a lower dose changed every 5 days. I'm sick a bloody tired of them saying they last 7 days. who is with me. :evil: :evil: by the way I am only on two patches now been a week and f the gp I changed the two today in stead of Sunday morning. ps sorry about the f word lol.

Waaayyyyyyyy ahead of you with Durogesic patches :)
The truly hardest part is finding a medico who's willing to believe you over the package notes. The drugs board and pharmacists seem to have no problem with the doctor approved protocols.

I'm with you too Braddo,

The Durogesic patches don't last the prescribed 3 days...only about 2 days...is that the same for you Aetherone?
