Here is My Question:
I stopped using Butrans patches for scoliosis pain 3 weeks ago. My leg strength and mobility have really deteriorated. Will this pass? Is there a connection?
You should direct this question to your neurologist. He will know the strength of your prior Butrans patch, other medications that may be contributing to your sense of weakness and the reason you needed such a strong narcotic for pain. This will go a long way to answering your question.
