It is always better not to drink when you are already on anti-addiction therapy.
Otherwise it may cause opioid withdrawal symptoms.
The fatal symptoms like respiratory depression can also occur.
Better to avoid drinking or other sort of addiction.

Hi Felicia Schwall,
welcome to the health care magic forum,there is no recomended duration of gap beteen the dose of suboxone and drinking you can have it after 3-4 hrs of that,but you should avoid drinking and consider the seriousness of the therapy you are undergoing through.
