    Benadryl and Suboxone are fine together– the only danger would be in a person who is not tolerant to opiates, who takes other respiratory depressants, and who has some critical risk– say severe sleep apnea– perhaps benadryl could ‘push him over the edge’ and contribute to respiratory arrest. Very, very unlikely.
    As for heroin and Suboxone, the situation is more complicated. In general, adding Suboxone to heroin would add a measure of safety, as the buprenorphine in Suboxone would block most or all of the effect of the heroin. If a person takes heroin a few times and THEN adds Suboxone, they will likely go into miserable withdrawal– miserable but not life-threatening (you only WISH you were dead!). If a person took Suboxone first for a few days, and then took heroin, they may get nothing at all from the heroin– not sick, not high– perhaps though a bit of a ‘placebo effect’ and the feeling of being high.
    The risk comes when a person is taking Suboxone and then decides to try to overcome the block by taking larger doses of heroin. Addicts will sometimes impulsively take huge doses, if they are hell bent on getting something from the heroin. Once you start playing with very large IV doses, all bets are off over the outcome– people can end up taking doses that are simply too high to live through, and there with this type of situation there is no opportunity to say ‘oops’ and ask for a ‘do over’.
