Can one be used in combination with vicodin to increase the effectieness for pain
16 Jun 2009
Suboxone contains naloxone along with buprenorphine. Subutex is buprenorphine only. The naloxone places the user in precipitated w/d if they use opiates or abuse (snort or inject) the suboxone while taking it.
You don't want to use vicodin with either subutex or suboxone. The buprenorphine has a blocking effect on opiates and you won't receive the benefit of the medication.

Buprenorphine (Subutex) and buprenorphine and naloxone (Suboxone) are used to treat opioid dependence Buprenorphine alone and the combination of buprenorphine and naloxone prevent withdrawal symptoms when someone stops taking opioid drugs by producing similar effects to these drugs.
Some people try using Vicodin with either one of these drugs, they do this because they feel that maybe the Vicodin will work better incombination with the Subutex or Suboxone. "No"
But what you must realize that it is like taking two magnets both have a negative pole and the Subutex and the Suboxone will always push away the Vicodin.
Look at it this way, I want to get off the drugs and don't want to give the drugs up.
Read everything you can find on Subutex and Suboxone and you will be surprised how these two drugs work. Also you only take one or the other as the doctor prescribes, not the Suboxone and Subutex together.
Best to you...
