Suboxone and Cognition: Will It Effect My Thinking

  • anonymous Asks ...

    Do you know if Suboxone has any cognitive effects? I am thinking about going back to school and I do not want to get into something if it’s going to interfere with my ability to think clearly.

    The extent of suboxone on cognition has not been studies extensively. Some states allow physicians on Suboxone to return to their practices and others do not.

    Generally, if you are not studying brain surgery, it probably will not be a significant factor.
