With that in mind you need to be aware of the side effects resulting from any medication you are taking. Suboxone side effects and those of other opioids are very similar.
Common Side Effects
Common side effects resulting from normal use include sweating, nausea, headaches, constipation, dizziness, and insomnia. Though these are noted as common side effects if you are concerned about any of these contact your primary care physician or the doctor that prescribed them and let them know what you are experiencing.
Severe Side Effects
Some severe effects from overuse are rashes, mood changes including depression, anxiety, and difficulty breathing. There are other sever suboxone side effects as a result of liver problems. These include extreme nausea, yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark colored urine, and stomach pain. If you are experiencing any of these contact your doctor immediately.
The fourth group of suboxone side effects are very dangerous and most likely caused by an allergic reaction to the medication. If you are taking suboxone and have severe stomach pain, shallow breathing, closing of the throat, hives or swelling of the face or mouth you should seek medical attention immediately. If you ignore these side effects they could become lethal.
Medications to Avoid
Finally, there are several prescription medications you should avoid taking while on suboxone, unless your doctor has authorized it. These medications include Xanax, Valium, Biaxin, Nizoral, Priftin, Mebaral, and many others. If you are not sure if you should be taking a certain medication simultaneously with suboxone you need to consult with your doctor.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of suboxone side effects. If you are experiencing any type of issue that you believe may be related to your suboxone usage you need to check with your doctor immediately, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
