Well the suboxone would just block the opiate and it might still help with pain a little. But suboxone is used for opiate addicts to get them off of opiates and that way they also have less withdraw symptoms. So I do know that for addicts it would just block the opiate from being received by the receptors. I dont know what happens for an actual chronic pain patient who actually needs opiates for the right reason.
if you've been on suboxene for awhile, it may not affect you, but these drugs are not to be mixed and can cause serious withdrawls symptoms that will make you very sick. Since it was a small dose, hopefully that did not happen to you. Suboxene is an opiod blocker, yes, but you have to have ALL other opiates out of your system prior to starting suboxene or you will get sick, and i do mean, SICK.so do not mix these drugs, it sounds like someone told you, oh, just take this... it'll be fine, and maybe it was, but suboxene taken after pain meds is a big no no, due to the withdrawls it brings on. Years ago, it was made differently, and you COULD take it, it was called Buprenorphine mostly then, and it would take you OUT of any withdrawls, but the whole chemical make up of the drug has changed, that is why you must wait at least 24 to 72 hr. if you've been on opiods prior to beginning a suboxene program.
Hope that helps you and also hope very much that you had no ill effects, ie. sickness with this, it's not going to kill you, but it's not a combo you want to use again. Take care. Dede
