Does Suboxone interact with cannabis? Recent research suggests that cannabis can elevate the levels of buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) in the blood. (1) We also know that both marijuana and Suboxone are depressant drugs, so they suppress the central nervous system and could potentially lead to respiratory depression (slowing or stopping breathing), coma, and even death. The dangers of combining Suboxone with cannabis are not as significant as combining Suboxone with benzodiazepines (like xanax, klonopin, ativan, valium) or with alcohol. However, patients should be aware of this potential threat, especially if they […]

Is Suboxone safe for people with a co-existing psychological illness? Yes! In fact, treatment of opioid addiction and treatment of co-existing psychological illnesses (like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, bipolar) go hand-in-hand. When a person is struggling with active addiction, it is very difficult for them to manage their mood and emotions. Also, active addiction can cause mood problems. And, when people are feeling depressed or anxious or having panic attacks, it makes it very difficult for them to take care of themselves, including engaging in addiction recovery efforts. People thus do […]

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications? Buprenorphine interacts with other sedative medications—medications that make you tired and slow you down. These include medications like benzodiazepines: alprazolam (brand name: xanax), clonazepam (brand name: klonopin), diazepam (brand name: valium), and lorazepam (brand name: ativan); muscle relaxers; tranquilizers; sleeping agents; and alcohol. All these medications depress your central nervous system and have an additive effect. Taking too many can lead to respiratory depression (slowing or stopping of your breathing) and overdose. In low quantities, these might be safe with Buprenorphine, but […]

Urine Drug Screen

By: | Tags:

What happens if I fail a urine drug screen during treatment? Urine drug testing is a tool used to support recovery and address relapse, and “failing” a urine drug screen test will not result in discharging patients from Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) treatment. Because buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is a life-saving medication, our goal is to keep you on this evidence-based treatment as long as possible. We encourage patients to be honest and discuss relapses and close-calls so we can help maximize their chances of success in recovery. As a chronic disease, relapse is […]

Does Suboxone show up on a drug test? Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is NOT part of the standard drug screen so it should not show up on a standard test. For buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) to show up on a urine drug screen, someone would have to specifically order “buprenorphine” in addition to the standard drug test. If you are concerned about your employer checking for Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) and using the test results in negative ways against you, our MD can provide an official letter explaining you have a […]
