I know Suboxone does not show up in a standard test. But the job I am applying for may do an extended test. I have a perscription from my Doc and I am on 16mg a day which by the way is wonderful. But I was wondering if anyone knows how long til my urines clean.

Sounds to me like your trying to hide something. Why lie about your prescription? This sounds like an addict talking OFF the wagon... just my observation!

Did you already tell them you're taking it? If not I wouldn't tell them and I'm 99% sure that employer's don't test for suboxone unless for DOT and even then it's a company discretion.

Please serious responses only. My job depends on it. I have been prescribed suboxene 8mg tablets for over a year for chronic pain(RSD) i am taking a urine test for new employment in the morning. They said it doesn't matter if im prescribed or not i have to be 100% clean. Anyone know any absolute way to get clean that quick?? Btw i dont take 8mg a day only about a quarter of that.

According to Norchem labs, a privately contracted lab that performs drug tests for employers etc., suboxone has a half life of 24 hours and it's detection time for screening tests is 1-7 days.

You can take that for what it's worth, or if you are interested I will walk you through the math:

They say the cutoff detection level is 5ng/mL. Let's say you take an 8mg strip.

8mg in 5L blood (average male) is 8000000ng/5000mL or 1600ng/mL. So when you first take that strip lets assume for arguments sake the most extreme scenario, that is all of it gets into your blood i.e. 100% bioavailability (you can do this by IVing the strip, sublingually bioavailability is around 60%). Over each half life the concentration will halve and look like:

That is approximately 8-9 half lives to get below the detection level of 5ng/mL. And if each half life is 24 hours that's 8-9 days. If you want to assume each half life is 48 hours then it would be 16-18 days. And if 72 hours then 24-27 days.

So for suboxone to get out of your urine, depending which half life you use, could take anywhere from 8-27 days.

Hope that helped. Questions? {edited for privacy}

This post is so silly, in they absolutely test for suboxone in urine. Even a simple 10 panel test otc. Also they test for metobolites that your body breaks substances down to not the drug itself. You cannot put any drug in urine and expect it to test positive. One more thing suboxone has about a 37 hour half life expect it to be in your system for 10-14 days

Are you not prescribed it, or are you just worried about the stigma that comes with being in addiction maintenance?

Bullcrap. I actually get clean urine and get about 10 of the empty wrappers and basically wash the wrappers out with the urine and test positive for it (suboxone) every time. But you have to do it at home and take it with you because it takes about 10 min to do it. But it works evertime for me.

Well gee wiz I must be making all this up just to frighten the poor little boy and girl addicts. And FYI it wasn't even drug court nor am I even on probation. So take the info how you choose but Suboxone testing is coming to a friendly court house near you.

Si Google traducir obras correcto que usted quiere saber si las pruebas de los servicios sociales para suboxone. En cuanto a algunos condados no no lo hacen, pero algunos están poniendo de moda y lo incluyen en su panel. Pero la mayoría tiene la petición especial que por lo que debería estar bien. ¿Dónde están ubicados?
