Hi. I have been on suboxone for 2 years and I feel like I don't dream or sometimes I do feel like I had a dream but I can't remember it. It's so weird because I always used to dream especially while on antidepressants. So many things I miss feeling because of the suboxone. I used to love music and now I just can't feel it. Also, I know you're not supposed to drink alcohol while on suboxone but I've tried to have a beer or 2 at a wedding or special occasion and I feel like I get a hangover right away without any buzz. I feel sick if I drink. Does anyone else feel like this? I hope your dreams don't frighten you or cause you anxiety. TC Larsy1966 :)
I feel sure this isn't going to totally give you the answer you are looking for but I was not on suboxone I was on the oxycontin four to five years ago you know I remember having such intense vivid dreams this is also just for you to know I hope you find the answer you are looking for but as soon as I saw this I happened to recall just how intense those dreams were and you know I believe it was due to the oxycontin I have a friend who is a nurse practicioner and she told me a lot of the opiates like that and morphine can cause vivid dreams take care
I've been on strong opiates for quite a while and have pretty vivid dreams at night. I don't always remember them but some have stuck with me and yes, pretty bizarre ones too! Suboxone is an opiate so maybe it is a side effect. Good question!! I thought my dreams were related to every day stresses, not meds. Maybe there is a relationship there. I'll have to research this a bit more.
Take care and hope the dreams aren't too bad for you.
It's very odd that you asked this question because I was thinking about it today. I was addicted to oxycontin for 5 years and used suboxone for periods of time all throughout those years. I've been on it everyday for a month, and I just don't dream anymore. I used to all the time before I was using. My boyfriend feels the same. Maybe it's because we just don't remember, but neither of us has had a dream that we can recall in years. I have no clue if that has anything to do with anything.. I know this probably doesn't help but just FYI.
