How long after taking Suboxone can I take Klonopin?

Never use Klonopin or clonazepam and Suboxone together recreationally. Always talk to your doctor before mixing these medications. 

Many patients that are on Suboxone are also on other psychiatric or mood-stabilizing medications. Klonopin or clonazepam is a benzodiazepine and is most often used as an anti-anxiety medication. 

Like Suboxone, Klonopin can cause sleepiness or sedation. This is why using the two medications together can be dangerous, as it can lead to respiratory suppression and even death. 

While some patients are on both Suboxone and Klonopin at the same time, this should be done carefully under the supervision of a doctor.
