    Hi,If youre unable to use your NSAID then your doctor may need to change you on to a different class of anti-inflammatory drug to control your swelling. A stronger opiate may help to control the pain, but it wont reduce the swelling and so this is something that your doctor would have to address. He may put you on a stronger dose of prednisolone or may alternatively put you on something like methotrexate or sulfasalazine, which are known as Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDS). These are not painkillers, but will work to reduce the swelling and slow the progression of the RA.If they do decide to put you on stronger painkillers then there are a few routes that they can go down. If they are increasing your opiates then they will likely stop your buprenorphine patches. They then could either give you a slow release preparation such as MST Continus (morphine) to be taken twice daily or fentanyl patches to be replaced ever 72 hours. With either of these options, an immediate release painkiller (such as morphine 10mg tabs) could also be taken if breakthrough pain is experienced. However, your doctor may decide to try a different treatment route depending on his/her own experience and your own symptoms.Hope this helps,Neldo
