My son is taking suboxone for a week now and is doing great on it, he broke out in hives so can he take benadril for his hives or will it mess up anything.
Hey Page, Suboxone has warnings that it reacts with many medications, but, I personally have taken subs and benadryl ( I have horrible allergies, oddly, I sneezed only 4 or 5 times in the 2 1/2 years on subs) and he will just have to make sure he is not driving, operating heavy machinery, babysitting, anything that would require total alertness as it COULD make him sleepier than normal. And only take 1 tablet, don't start with 2 tablets of benadryl. See if you too can figure out what caused the hives in the first place, if you suspect the subs( which would probably isn't the cause) please call his subs doctor and let the doctor know. Subutex might be substituted if doc suspects suboxone is the cause.
Hi Page, Using the benadryl with suboxone may increase the respiratory-depressant effects. But there's no adverse reaction warnings about taking the 2 together. Have you discussed the hives with his sub doctor? Hopefully it's not an allergic reaction. Happy to hear he's doing well on the subs.
Take care and best wishes,
not knowing all the things about your son maybe the hives are from another source I know this is not ( a direct answer) but possibly you need to let his doctor know and see what he thinks I would in no way give advice that might cause harm please take care both of you
He may be allergic to naloxone if he's breaking out in hives on his face especially then you might want to talk to your doctor and get him switch to Subutex or something without the naloxone blocker let the doctor know right away before continuing hives can get especially bad around the face nose and ears
