While I don't have any personal experience with this medication, I have read that it could be in your system for about a week or so (depending on a number of factors). Usually for drugs like this, I think the safest way to stop taking them is to taper off them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them.

I hope this info helps!

I know this is a quite a while back, but if you are still having problems, Subutex or Suboxone Is The Way To Go !!!!! What's sad though about this program is that you have to see a special doctor, and they don't take insurance :/ But, I would not be alive today without it !! I started on Hydrocodone, then went to Heroin. Was on Heroin for approx. 3 years. I Could Not Detox on my own. I would go straight back and use, even if I was 3-4 days clean..Subutex Saved my life and my childrens mother, unfortunately my husband, my childrens father did not make it. He died of an overdose 08/19/12 . Subutex !!!

I just wanted to add that the Suboxone is the best way to go. I tried numerous of times to kick the abuse of hydrocodone but failed everytime. I just recently started a program with a Dr that prescribed me Suboxone and it makes it 10 times easier! And safer! Good luck!

Suboxone doctors, do in fact, take in insurance. It is the easiest way to gett off of opiates, by far

Also I have been taking one tramdol a day. And it has helped my withdrawals a lot. Is tramadol addictive. They say that its not a nrcotiic. I mean I only take one a day. I guess what I'm tryin to ask is will I get addicted to tramadol. I just planned takin one a day thru the next month. Until the suboxone is out of my system. And then bye bye tramadol. It helps a lot.

If you have a prescription it should not be a problem. You are allowed to take your prescribed medication. When you take your drug panel just inform them you have a prescription and have been taking them for your knee pain re ordered by your doctor. If you come up with it in your system a medical review officer will call you and verify your script. I use to do drug panels and know how this works. Good luck. Hope I was helpful.
