Effects on ability to drive and use machines
Buprenorphine has minor to moderate influence on the ability to drive and use machines when administered to opioid-dependent patients.
Buprenorphine may cause drowsiness, dizziness or impaired thinking, especially during treatment induction and dose adjustment. If used together with alcohol or central nervous system depressants, the effect is likely to be more pronounced.
The patient should be cautioned not to drive or operate hazardous machinery whilst taking this medicine until it is known how the patient is affected by the medicine. An individual recommendation should be given by the treating healthcare professional.
