The strongest Butrans patch, I believe, is similar in terms of daily bio-availability to a 2mg Suboxone. So to have the pt take the patch off the end of one day and start 2mg Suboxone the next would seem to be a wash.

(Butrans and Suboxone equivalency were discussed in this thread, I did not redo the calculations myself as they seemed reasonable:
