When I sometimes swallow food or liquid gets stuck half-way down,there some pain and then I can feel it go on down and it doesn't happen again that day.Happens once or twice per 14 days before following procedure.Happens more if I wait a long time before my 1st meal.

I had a scope and it was found I have a narrow esphagus so they stretched it during an upper GI endoscopy and it helped but I have to have it done again.

I've heard that opiates effect the smooth muscles relaxes them,the ones that force food and by-products through our digestive tract.
Does Suboxone effect smooth muscles?

It's my understanding that any opiate, Suboxone included, relaxes the smooth muscle of our intestines. This is what causes constipation in so many of us who are on opiates.

Personally, I've never heard of the swallowing issue and I'm not entirely sure if opiates effect the muscles of our esophagus, but I guess it kinda does make sense.
