Three strengths of Butrans will be available: 5, 10, and 20 mcg/hour; each single transdermal system is intended to be worn for seven days.  Do not exceed a dose of one 20 mcg/hour Butrans system due to the risk of QTc interval prolongation.  Avoid exposing the Butrans application site and surrounding area to direct external heat sources.  Temperature-dependent increases in buprenorphine released from the system may result in overdose and death.
