I don't know much about colonoscopies, do they put you "under?" Do you need to take pain medication? You definitely need to talk to your doctor about this, but I'm pretty sure you would need to stop taking suboxone for at least a few days before going under anesthesia

Definitely talk to your physician about it first.
