Suboxone doesn't block xanax, but you are NOT supposed 2 be taking both, it can cause you 2 stop breathing as both are respiratory depressants. If you are on more than 8mgs of subs, the danger is even greater. if your subs dr oks this combo, you should still be aware that it can be fatal and the xanax will have a much stronger effect.

yes it does work but like the above said you can stop breathing if you take to much. Just watch the dosage and dont take more than prescribed.
