I've done a lot of reading on how to transition problematic chronic pain non-OUD patients and I think I've got a good one. There's not a lot written about outpatient transitions for community pain patients so I've borrowed from a lot of case series like the links below. Using a single Butrans patch for 5 days, tapering down full agonist opioids over 3 and starting sublingual buprenorphine on day 3 and increasing should do it! The varying fractions of flims for bernese-style protocols just confused my patients but slapping a butrans patch on seems like an elegant solution to slow microtransitions. What do you think? See attached pdf. I've already had success with this other case series using Butrans: https://doi.org/10.7812/TPP/19.124 and https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/article-abstract/2720129?utm_campaign=articlePDF&utm_medium=articlePDFlink&utm_source=articlePDF&utm_content=jamainternmed.2018.6749 Buprenorphine Microdosing with Patch protocol Perez.pdf
