I took 2 8mg suboxone around 3pm and I was wondering if it is safe to take 1-2 1mg xanax 1hr before bed time (11pm).
You really should NOT take the xanax for sleep, you need to take your suboxone earlier in the day, it won't cause any sleep problems if you take it early. The reason a person should NOT take benzos on subs is that they both are respiratory depressants and if you combine them, you could have depressed breathing of even stop breathing. Only patients who are prescribed benzos by the subs doctors ( and this is rare believe me) should take them, and that is only if the person can only take benzos to control seizures. They are closely monitored if that is the case, and are usually on less subs.
