I am ready to start using Suboxone again and I was wondering if there were any issues with taking Klonopin with it? I already have anxiety issues and going through withdrawals and not using opiates only worsens the anxiety. Will the Suboxone reject the Klonopin and send me into withdrawals or make me sick at all? Any help is appreciated.
You are not supposed to take any benzodiapines while on suboxone, it can cause death. I am pretty sure about that because I went through an outpatient program and read it here. I am pretty sure Klonapin is a benzo, as well as valium, xanax, ativan aka lorazepam. Some doctors apparently will prescribe benzos to a suboxone patient, however, most doctors use something called clonidine. My doc wouldn't give me anything except the suboxone. I went to group therapy and dealt with everything and I actually have panic disorder. Please go to group or individual therapy. You greatly improve your life and your chance of staying clean and healing with therapy. You may hate it in the beginning, but, you will want to go after just a few meetings, I promise. AA is good if you don't have money to go to a group. Some cities have NA and that would be good too. If you are with others who are going through the same thing, you will help them and they will help you and you won't be as anxious. Good Luck to you!
