One week ago, I was prescribed 2 Suboxone tabs daily 12 hours apart. All was well until today when I took my 2nd dose 8 hrs. later. My head began itching like crazy several hours after that dose. Is that considered a serious reaction?

I have never heard of this however with any opiate like drug, there can be itching. Call your suboxone doctor or a pharmacist to ask if it is ok for you to take a benadryl tablet to control the itching. You may want to take less suboxone in the future, please ask your doctor if it is OK to drop the dose. Most adverse side effects of suboxone go away if the dose is lowered, like constipation or sleepiness. Please call your subs doc.
