The issues with mixing Suboxone and Alcohol?
One of the most dangerous things you can do while taking Suboxone is mix it with alcohol. The combination of these two substances can be especially deadly, causing serious complications like respiratory failure, coma, or even death. It’s important to understand why mixing alcohol and Suboxone can be so dangerous. You should know what amount of each substance could prove fatal if ingested together—and also know that over-the-counter medications like Benadryl are deadly when mixed with Suboxone.
A lot of people are using Suboxone for two reasons: to treat opioid addiction or pain management. Many of these people use alcohol in addition to their other medications, but combining Suboxone with alcohol is not a good idea. Alcohol interferes with how well your body absorbs drugs, which means that you need more to get high when taking it in combination with other substances. Drinking alcohol while on Suboxone can lead to overdose, because you’re much more likely to take too much than you would be if taking it alone. Alcoholic beverages include beer, wine, champagne and distilled spirits like rum, gin or vodka.
