Suboxone: I suspect you have tapered the Suboxone too quickly and are in withdrawal. You may, however, have an untreated anxiety disorder. Doxepin even at very low doses can be very sedating depending on how slowly your liver metabolizes it. Please discuss these issues with your prescribing physician. Both meds can worsen central sleep apnea, but you likely experienced symptoms with the lowering of your narcotic dose. Best wishes.
