Hello I am about to start suboxone today. I also am a smoker and want to quit smoking. I have purchased nicotine patches. Can I take suboxone and wear the nicotine patch at the same time?

Please help! Thanks. :?

I think you will be fine if you use both. I have not personaly. But I do know 1 person who does with no problems. Well, they haven't actually quit smoking yet so that is their problem!!

I am not doctor or expert.

Good luck and take care!!

I quit smoking while on suboxone with the nicotine patch, and it worked out well. This coming July will be three years since I had a cigarette. Opiates and cigarettes go hand and hand. I only smoked for a few weeks while on suboxone, but I was up to two packs a day from 15 cigarettes a day. Sub and cigs go very well together. Try bupropion to quit long term. It is the active ingredient in wellbutrin and zyban. Buproprion actually works wonders for a sub patient, even if you don't smoke. Ive been on bupropion almost nearly as long as Ive been on sub.
