Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that Suboxone may lead to side effects which are quite common like feeling very hot or cold. Increased sweating can also be a side effect , I think You need to contact your treating physician and inform him regarding this.

Suboxone contains buprenorphine and naloxone which is used to treat narcotic (opioid) dependence . Naloxone leads to opioid withdrawl so buprenorphine is a low potency opioid so that it does not occur but still it can result in such symptoms which settle on their own .

Take care.
