Son on methadone rx. If he is taking suboxone will he be more sedated. Or is suboxone a opioid bloc

  1. My son is taking methadone thru a clinic daily for opioid dependacy.
    He is extremely sedated. I found what looked to be suboxone. If suboxone is taKen with methadone would this be the result I was under the understanding that Suboxone was an opiate blocker. I would think it would make him sick.
    Any help is greatly aporeciated.

    @Sharynsdestiny... I don't have any medical education or knowledge of this subject. But common sense tells me that taking Suboxone with methadone is not a good idea. My best advice would be to consult a doctor, probably an addiction specialist. Is your son's Suboxone prescribed by a doctor? If so, does the doctor know he's taking methadone?
