I OVER TAKE MY NUVIGIL CAN I DIE AN DOES IT MAKE MY SUBOXONE WEAR OFF MUCH FASTER
Jessica on Oct, 5, 2012:
I was actualy wondering if suboxone made nuvigil not work. I was under the assumption that suboxone could counteract these type of meds. My doc didnt say anything of the sort but just wondering. It takes two doses of nuvigil to make a difference.
mel143 on Oct, 17, 2012:
Yes it will. Nuvigil causes enzymes in the liver to degrade the suboxone much more quickley. I have been percribed both and I couldnt take the nuvigil with the suboxone anymore because the suboxone wouldnt work when I did.
keithkenpo on Apr, 7, 2013:
My understanding is suboxone is taken subliminally so it does not go thru liver, i could be wrong though. If you can stop suboxone abruptly by using nuvigil it would be great.
