Some Drs will prescribe benzos with suboxone treatment. The real danger is in IV users due to the high potential for fatal interactions with the two drugs. When taken as prescibed, benzos are safe to take while on sub. I take ativan and I was taking sub at the same time. You should always put several hours in between the xanax and sub doses because taking them at the same time can have negactive effects.
Not a good ideal thought I'd let you know what sub did to me....Message me if you like
I wrote this to someone else that was put on suboxone w/out choice from oc's but might help you too. I to am on methadone and have been 2 1/2 yrs why do you want off??? Any questions let me know...Hope helps Holliee
Hello if I were you I would call a lawyer asap and sue there *** off for medication withdraw pain and suffering etc... Thats total bs oh people make me so mad. Sorry about all that just makes me mad. To be honest suboxone is pretty high price each pill at a pharmacy is about 5-8 dollars each so they not saving much at all sounds to me like they are saying your an addict and putting you on treatment plan to get you off oc etc. Like I said I've tried Suboxone and it's awful here's what it did to me. When I first started made me feel awful so I thought well it;s new I'll try it out but never changed at all. I tried it for 6 months and stayed same whole 6 months. I would get up and take an 8mg about 15 mins later my head would start to hurt and feel sick to my stomach so I'd have to lay down for about 30 mins then help some. SO I would get back up and still have little head ache, never helped with NONE my pain at all. Then after about an hour I would start to feel real nervous now I;m usually not a nervous person in general. Then at noon take another 8mg same thing head ache lay down and get up feel same now during all this I still had all my pain so having deal with that the only thing it did was not make me withdraw from oxycotion. Well around 6pm take last 8mg one for day and guess what same thing head ache lay down etc.. Well by time it was bed time I was NEVER sleepy at all not whole 6 mos so I tried go bed and couldn;t sleep that to never before had trouble with. So finally pain go so bad I couldn;t take it no more and said this is crazy and I'm DONE. Well here kicker you have to wait 24 hrs before you can take an opiate from your last dose because it will send you into awful withdraws I told my self if I make it through this never again will I take one these things even if I have nothing an I am with drawing. wel I spent a whole day in w/draws from it plus pain and no sleep finally got back on oc and NEVER TOUCHED ONE THOSE awful things. What they are really used for is to get people off herion, oc, opiates that done have pain but have an addiction to them. So honey you need to do something FAST.....
I know that sometimes they are Rx'ed together, but there IS a risk. Even though the main reason the 2 types of meds (Subs and benzos) were contraindicated was b/c of IV use, there also have been people who have run into problems taking them both orally.
Bottom line, unless you are Rxed them both under a doctor's care, I wouldn't go there, you just never know. The combo can cause respiratory depression...which, if it happens, could be verrry dangerous.
Personally, I would steer clear of the benzos. Also for the reason mentioned above...they can be addictive as well.
