I have been taking 16 mgs of Sub for almost 2 weeks. I feel great don't get me wrong, but last night I had a couple of drinks, well maybe more than a couple. I have been feeling strange, cranky, tired and just not my usual self after a night of drinking. And I am NOT by any means a big drinker. I get drunk 2 maybe 3 times a year. I am interested in hearing any other stories people have with mixing alcohol and Sub. Thanks!!!!

I am not a big drinker at all, but the other day when I was with a bunch of family, well, a couple of 'em make wine, so of course we were drinking wine with diner. Very good I might add. But, I had to drive a decent trip home, so I only had a few drinks, small buzz. Nothing that was excessive because of suboxone. I haven't had a drink in so long that I couldn't tell the difference. Just wanted to let you know!

I've had some drinks on subs simply because it is a part of our family social interactions... especially during holidays. I honestly feel nothing like i did before subs. No euphoria or any other similar effects. Maybe it's just me but it could be the same 'blocking' principle nalaxone/bupe has with other drugs??

I had a few drinks while I was on Suboxone and the main difference I noticed was that I needed to drink even more water than usual. I think Suboxone made me deyhdrated, so even if I had just a glass of wine or two with dinner, I felt hungover(ish) the next day.

I have been on suboxone for just over a year and have drank on several occasions. I liked the way that the combination felt. (beer only) I know that it is not the most intelligent decision because like with all opiate like drugs the chance of it being your last screw up is always there. A word from the not so wise, lets not do this. alcohol is a drug and it has a tendency just like any other drug to invite a relapse. I speak from expierience don't do it.

I had a few drinks a few months ago and boy did I feel terrible. I may drink maybe 3 times a year, during holidays, and have never felt so bad before subs. I too had to drink alot of water, I felt so dehydrated. It wasn't the same old Buzz that I had gotten before. I actually found myself saying that "fox hollow prayer", " God if you just stop the way I'm feeling and it goes away, ILL never do this again!" LOL It's just not the same anymore. I'm actually glad I found this out so I can be prepared at family functions and I can avoid the alcohol table.
