I am not a doctor but have had an upper done. They gave me a local spray and that was it. I recall it tasted horrible and had a "bubblegum" taste.
I doubt this spray will have any untoward effects upon the Suboxone

HI Hector: NO, the suboxone will not affect the anesthesia, as it is not an opiate. I did my research and spoke with my doctor as I have surgery coming up in about four weeks (hysterectomy) and I am being put out. Don't worry and much luck. Also, I go for spinal injections every few moths or so and I am given a twilight anesthesia and again, the subs (which I am on for well over three years) do not affect it. It'll be fine, but if you are really worried, speak to your doctor. Julie

I suggest you be honest either way and let them know you are taking sub.
