maybe: Consult with your treating physician in detail to get a comprehensive answer for your specific situation. What may be safe for someone else may not be for you.

Being boarded in sleep medicine and also being a Suboxone prescriber, I can't think of a single combination of meds I would shy away from more. Risk of respiratory suppression is too great with this combo. Hope this helps.

Yes: Both need to be taken as instructed and not casually. The sedation would be compounded from the two at night.

Absolutely not: Taking these two together would be a quick recipe for death. They should never under any circumstances be combined.
