Is it a bad idea to take Suboxone if you take codeine?

Is it a bad idea to take Suboxone if you take codeine?

Yes: Suboxone contains Buprenorphine plus a short acting opiate blocker called naloxone. Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic partial opiate agonist. Suboxone can take away the cravings for opiates so the addict can work on figuring out why he or she takes opiates in the first place.

I take a drug test weekly because I am on suboxone. I come up positive for codeine every now and then. I have not taken any other substance. Help?

Codeine is an opiate: And therefore is tested for in many drug screens. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine, an opiod medication, and naloxone an opiod/narcotic reverser. Buprenorphine is metabolized differently from methadone, heroin, etc. And if you are ONLY taking suboxone, the opiate test should be negative. So I can't explain your results. Discuss with your suboxone provider:) Read more
