Does Suboxone have interactions with other prescriptions or medications that I might be taking?

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) does not interact adversely with most medications. However, because Suboxone can cause some sedation at first, taking it with other sedating drugs (benzodiazepines such as alprazolam/Xanax, clonazepam/Klonopin, diazepam/Valium, and lorazepam/Ativan; muscle relaxers; tranquilizers; sleeping agents; alcohol) is NOT advisable. Taking too many sedating medications can lead to respiratory depression and even overdose. If you are taking multiple sedating medications, you should be monitored closely by your doctor and also report if you are feeling overly tired/sedated while on these medications.
