Yes, it is safe to take Tylenol whilst you are on Suboxone.

However, if you have any further reservations about mixing these two medications, then it may be worth taking a trip to your local doctor or pharmacist.

Can you take Tylenol with Suboxone?
  • Suboxone is a combination of naloxone and buprenorphine.
  • The buprenorphine present within Suboxone is an opioid which is very similar to substances such as morphine, codeine and heroin - although the "high" is a lot less potent.
  • Naloxone reduces the effects of opiates such as morphine, codeine and heroin.
  • Suboxone is prescribed to patients to treat opiate addiction.
  • Tylenol is a pain-reliever which can also act to reduce a fever.
  • The drug is prescribed to treat a variety of conditions such as bad headaches, muscle pain, arthritis, backaches, tooth pain, the common cold and fevers.
  • Do not take more than the recommended dosage of Tylenol as this could cause severe liver damage or even death.
It's safe to take these two together.

Yes. Tylenol is not a narcotic. You can take any kind of Tylenol except Tylenol 3. Or any that have codine in them. And you cannot take Tylenol pm. Other than that, plain Tylenol is fine to take while on Suboxone.
