Suboxone And Nyquil

Cats68 Says:

I have had a couple of bad colds and the flu over the last 6 months. I took NyQuil b cause it's a multi symptom cold and flu reliever. What a surprise when I took it with the suboxone, it helped me better with the pain I expierence. I suffer from multiple medical problems and had many surgeries. Now, I'm not saying 2 go and do this 4 nothing, but, it has really helped me. ( maybe, b cause of the liquid acetaminophen in it. Has anyone else done this or noticed it?

There's actually not any Acetaminophen in NyQuil, but I do suspect that the antihistamine/hypnotic properties of Doxylamine (in NyQuil) could be one thing that's providing an additional sense of pain relief.

The only other active ingredient in NyQuil is Dextromethorphan, which happens to be a cough suppressant. After doing some further investigations, I also found research stating that Dextromethorphan reduces the severity of painful sensations.

I don't know how much NyQuil is safe to take for long term relief, but it sounds like it can provide that extra buffer that's sometimes needed in the spur of the moment.

Dear David, there is acetaminophen in NyQuil. Read the ingrediants on the bottle. It's Tylenol and used 4 pain relief and fever reducer . Even the store name brands have the same ingrediants in them . Check it out.

Top Answer

To the OP and anyone reading this thread - it is technically not safe to take suboxone with nyquil because the buprenorphine interacts with multiple ingredients found in it. You may experience increased dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, or worse yet, a rare but serious condition called serotonin syndrome [1]. Definitely something to clear with your doctor or pharmacist first!

The diphenhydramine found in ZZZQuil may react with buprenorphine found in Suboxone. You may experience side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating [2].
