Maximize Absorption Of Suboxone Film?

My best friend & boyfriend of 20+ yrs takes suboxone. He's been on it for over 6 yrs. He has gone thru bouts with alcoholism and prescription drug abuse, thus the suboxone use now. Today I was cleaning and found an empty Johnny Walker bottle under the sink in his bathroom. It was a pretty depressing find but caused me to pause and rethink some of his behavior lately which has been more erratic, angry & he spends a lot of time downstairs by himself instead of hanging w/ me watching a movie at night like we've always done. At first I thought it was his use of "Jacked 3d" some body building supplement that he says gives him energy. ( of course the suboxone use doesn't help so now he's just replacing one addiction w/ another & this crap is getting expensive - as much as $80 a jar since the FDA has banned the sale of it) Anyway back to the booze when I told him what I found this is what he said; "Here is the deal with the empty booze bottle. I use it to wash my mouth before I take the suboxone so you get more in your body, so I don’t have to use as much and it really works. The alcohol preps your skin lining to allow more of the drug to enter your blood stream…sounds weird but it really works and I don’t have to use as much. That’s the real deal…"

Now I wasn't born under a bridge & I couldn't find one reference to this online for helping absorption - so he could use less. Need some help here: have any of you heard that using booze will increase absorption? How do you suggest I approach this. I'm dealing with him over-using the subs on occasions, he can't go w/o that damn "jacked 3d" crap & now I have to worry he's drinking? Advice appreciated from both users, those in recovery or partners/family members, etc who have someone they care about with similar issues & how they approach situations like this.

Hi EarthWarrior54! I would sit down and have a serious talk with him. As u said," u weren't born under a bridge." Deep down inside, u know what's going on. Him spending time downstairs and not with u, seem 2 me 2 b signs of closet drinking. I've NEVER heard of anyone rinsing their mouth with alcohol, b 4 taking suboxone. U rinse with water. Do u smell alcohol on his breath at different times during the day? Well, as I said," I would have that talk with him and let him know, u r NOT stupid." That's what I would do. Heck, I would even go down stairs after a few minutes, when he's down there and see what's going on. I know some people do it , but, u r not suppose 2 drink alcohol when taking suboxone. I wish u luck and let us know how it goes.

What he is saying is true, I use a cap full of 151 under my tongue and it works great. I would test him though, have him buy a bottle and see how long it lasts. It should last months if he is just doing it the way I am. I have a small bottle and it lasts me 4-5 months.

Alcohol opens the capillaries which will increase absorption but a small amount will do it. Like the other poster said a bottle should last months!

My wife has been on suboxicone for over a year with the strips. Her doctor told her that taking alcohol could have severe detrimental effects. Also taking any type of pain killer could potentially kill her. I am not a doctor or do I know much about this stuff other than first hand knowledge. It sounds like a story concocted to support the use of the alcohol. Why don't you look up the warnings to suboxicone and what can be taken with it or shouldn't be on WebMD?
