Is anyone on suboxone for pain control due to their crohns?

Hello again,
I have recently been taking suboxone for my pain control since after 15 surgeries since 2005 I got addicted to percocet they were prescribing me for such a long time. Taking the suboxone has given me the ability to actually live a somewhat normal life with less pain. My question is if anyone is on suboxone have they noticed any sexual side effects from taking it?


One of Buprenorphine's most common side effects is male sexual dysfunction and lowered libido in both genders, so yes, these side effects are completely typical. Consider consulting your GI for medications to counteract the side effect if it's messing with your life.
