It is generally safe to take  these two medications together, however, there may be an increased risk for CNS (central nervous system) depression. Symptoms of CNS depression might include; lack of coordination, impaired thinking, slowed reflexes, and slowed breathing to name a few.

If you've never taken the two medications together you should use caution and avoid activities that could be dangerous or those activities requiring attention and focus. You may consider talking to your doctor about trying a lower dose of the xanax when taking with suboxone to limit these drug interactions.
