Ann created the topic: How to quit Norspan 20mcg/hr patch
I have been on Norspan patches for 3 weeks, first on 5mcg no effect, the second week on 10mcg no effect and the third one on 20mcg patch a bit of an effect. I think this drug simply doesn't work for my neuropathic pain. I'm seeing a doctor on Monday but today is my changeover day and I am really desperate to quit because the relief is not worth the problems I'm having with concentration, lack of balance and drowsiness among other things.
After such a short time will I get terrible side effecet if I quit cold turkey? I have got panadeine forte and tramal that I could use to wean off.I also have a 10mcg/h patch that I could use instead of another 10. Can anyone help with this please?

If it is to be, it is up to me.
