Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
skin rash is similar to bed bug or flea bites.
From this study (3 years ago):
Ryan on May, 31, 2011:
I switched to suboxone film, and I have uncontrolable itching and rashing on my feet. I thought it was athletes foot, but I've been using lamisil for two months, and tried everything else. Also, I just started working in the heat, and I have heat rash all over my glutes and lower back. My friend switched to films also and his psoriasis flamed up real bad. He went back to the pill form and his problem cleared up right away. The film is making my skin flare up so I'm going to switch back to the pills. I've been on it for 1 year now, the films for 3 months.
From this study (3 years ago):
I believe the mix of alcohol with my suboxone medication is causing the rash on my arms and legs.
