5 doctors agree

In brief: Percocet/Suboxone

Although tyelenol (in percocet) can be detrimental to the liver. I would go by clinical picture ie abdominal pain, jaundice.
Generally it would be good to check liver function test every 6 months while on Percocet like this. Suboxone has not tyelenol so it can be safer for the liver, but all opioid create tolerance over time.

In brief: ?

Suboxone is not meant for use to treat pain, it is actually used to treat opiate addiction/dependency.
