Can you take Suboxone and Ambien together just for one night?

Dual diagnosis: I recommend not taking ambien and suboxone. Withdrawal and insomnia is part of the process of withdrawal. Taking another potentially addictive medication is not recommended. I would only advise it's use under the strict oversight of an addiction specialist during the time of use under a medication of suboxone which enhances it's effects ...Read more

MOM may be helpful.: Suboxone, effexor, and viibryd can all be contributing to excessive sweating that is the usual cause of body odor when the sweat interacts with skin bacteria.

Not sure of question: Did your doctor reduce or stop your suboxone or just add ambien. What you are describing is not a typical reaction to Ambien, although each person varies. I would check this out with your doc. If he reduced you suboxone, your symptoms would make more sense. ...Read more
