Re: Does Suboxone affect your Libido???

I would assume it might. Opiates effect your libido big time. I am on day 16 hydro free right now and my wife has to fend me off with a stick!~ Its so great to be hydro free! Seriously though, I would think that Sub would have the same effects. No "scientifically" sure though

Re: Does Suboxone affect your Libido???

Hi,
Being rather modest I am not going into any details, but, I have been on sub for over a year and my answer to your question is a definite NO! Now, everyone is different, so the sub could cause this I suppose. I would ask my doctor if I were you. You may be taking some other medication that could be causing this also.

As far as sub being an opiate, yes, it is. However, I have not found that it has caused any change in behaviour, or anything else. Except, of course, I no longer live for my hydrocodone fix and feel totally normal and happy for the first time in years.

Best of luck to you, and welcome to a new life of sobriety!

YES, well at least for me. im a 24 year old male with the labido of a bear. sub has done extrordinary things for me except for that part. my girfriend complains cause she dont get none and when she does, she wanders why it takes so long. Like the others said, it is a opiate though.
