one. however i would like to know, do drs prescribe mild benzos with the suboxone.ive been rx'd 0.5 mgs of alprazolam for 9 years so i am dependendent on it. this is why im conflicted about switching. any answers will be appreciated:)
First off id like to tell you (this is something i just learned recently myself) if you didnt know, suboxone can only be prescribed by doctors with a special license to do so. I dunno if that matters to you or not but i figure its worth throwing out there.
As for mixing it with xanax there can be bad side effect. Theyre both depressants, and can both cause breath depression, so together they can be dangerous. However, youre on a pretty low dose of xanax, so maybe it wont be a big deal? I would say its definitely worth having a talk with your doc about. Heres a thread that you can read that has a whole lot of info on it:
hope thatll help
I'm prescribed 8 8mg dilaudid a day & still get 2 1 mg klonopin & temazapam so in my case they don't see any problem but I know the methadone clinic asks 4 a full release of your medical info & I know that they are worried about benzos. I'd lay it out like you did here & see what your or a doctor says,but since suboxone is an opiate agonist & antagonist so it in therory cancels it self out unlike methadone which I'm sure you know is only an agonist,so if they are willing to write benzos to you now with methadone which is much more dangerous than suboxone
so I don't see why they wouldn't be willing to. Hope this helps.
There are doctors who will prescribe benzos with suboxone although it is not suggested that they do. I have read of plenty of people on here who are prescribed both by the suboxone doctor. My doctor will not and there is a danger of respiratory arrest. Just make sure that your doctor is aware and in agreement about the benzos and you should be fine. I have also read that unless you are abusing the suboxone by taking too much or injecting it, that the danger from the benzo is minimal. Take your suboxone when you get it as directed and not in any other fashion.
