Suboxone Drug Interactions

Medications That Cause Drowsiness
Suboxone causes significant drowsiness. Taking other medications that cause drowsiness while using Suboxone may lead to serious side effects, such as extreme sedation, low blood pressure, confusion, and potentially life-threatening breathing problems. Check with your healthcare provider before taking Suboxone with other medications that can cause drowsiness.
 
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Combining Suboxone with an MAOI may cause potentially serious problems. Do not use Suboxone if you have taken an MAOI within the past 14 days.
 
Opioids
Suboxone is designed to treat opioid dependence. If you use Suboxone while you are still using other opioids, Suboxone might cause withdrawal symptoms, as it contains naloxone. Naloxone is a drug that binds to and blocks opioid receptors in the body. If you abuse Suboxone by injection and are still taking other opioids, intense withdrawal symptoms are likely to occur.
