Suboxone And Cold Multi Symptom


I am on suboxone and I am sick. Can I take cold multi-symptom with acetaminophen / phenylephrine HCI / Dextromethorphan HBr? Just want to know if it is safe to take together? Can not find anything on this on the internet.

Hello, Rayrad! How are you?

I didn't find any interactions listed between them in the databases, but it's always best to double check this information to be sure.

The cold remedy, as listed by the FDA, may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and headache.

Suboxone is listed as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I am on 12 mg of suboxone a day. I got a flu shot last week and 2 days ago, started nasal congestion, now I feel and taste it down in my lungs. Was I not suppose to get a flu shot on suboxone? I'm in drug court and have to submit lab work frequently. All I have at home for this cold is missing and Alka-selster cold. Are they safe to take with suboxone? And will they make me fail lab work?

I meant to say I am in drug court and have to take drug panels frequently, and all I have is mucinex and Alka seltzer cold medicine. Will it turn up dirty on my U/A? I didn't know on my last post that my phone changed some of my words around. Lol. Anyway, looks like nobody has responded, and I'm on my way to drug test now, so I guess I'll find out soon.
