Does Suboxone impair driving?

Patients who have just started taking Suboxone are not advised to drive. Since Suboxone can make patients feel drowsy at first, driving should be avoided until the body gets used to the medication. This will usually take a few days. 

Once a patient is on a stable dose, they should be able to drive safely without feeling sedated. If you do feel dizzy or sedated at all on Suboxone, avoid driving and talk to your doctor about adjusting your dose.
