PATIENT INFORMATION

The effects of Buprenex (buprenorphine) , particularly drowsiness, may be potentiated by other centrally acting agents such as alcohol or benzodiazepines. It is particularly important that in these circumstances patients must not drive or operate machinery. Buprenex (buprenorphine) has some pharmacologic effects similar to morphine which in susceptible patients may lead to self-administration of the drug when pain no longer exists. Patients must not exceed the dosage of Buprenex (buprenorphine) prescribed by their physician. Patients should be urged to consult their physician if other prescription medications are currently being used or are prescribed for future use.
