My 19-year-old son may finally be getting off the roller coaster. He ran out of Suboxone and a "friend" gave him some Subutex to last until his Suboxone refill comes in. Only problem: he has the first meeting in the process to get his juvenile records sealed. Do they drug test at that point? Should he be worried about being positive because of the Subutex? Once that is out of his system,

The process can vary from state to state and within various districts, so I'm sorry, but I don't know if they will drug test, or not.

As to the medication, the active narcotic in both of them is Buprenorphine and it is not included in standard drug tests, they would have to order a special test to look for it and, since the active narcotic in both is the same, they would both be detected as the same thing.


However, if he is running out early, he should talk to his doctor about it, to prevent the problem in the future.

Are there any other questions or comments?

I have taken subutek several times for opiate addiction and I know for a fact that was the only medication I had been taking in over two months and I took a drug test that my cousin gives on a daily basis. (She works for DCS/DHS) and I failed for METHADONE. I promise you it showed up as methadone and I am concerned about how LONG it stays in your system. I know that methadone shows up for a long time because it gets into your bones and I really want to know if subutek shows up as long as methadone does.

I was at a sober house and I am on suboxone films and didn't tell them because I know it don't show up on most drug test. I ran out of them and took a subutex and failed for dope and no one believed me and my first thought was the guy that gave me a drug test put something in my piss or a drink in the fridge but still no one believed me and they wouldn't send it to a lab. So I was wondering if anyone knows any possible explanation for that???

Hi all. im a recovering herin user and i live in a bail hostel in the uk and do a six way test which does look for beupramorphine as well as coke.crack heroin and canabis/amphetamines and benzo's... well i snorted 8ml of subutex when i was very close to relapsing and using heroine again after being clean for 5 months and out of worry i drank on average a whopping 8 litres of water a day for 5 days and on the 6th day i tested positive for benupromorphine and failed. so whilst it satisfied my opium cravings and using heroin it got me knowhere fast and now they test me every week and in my opinion the only way to pass a urine test for subutex is to abstain for 9 to 10 days. i hope this clears it up a little for you guys..... on a personal note!!! "My weakness is none of thier business"

I REALLY want to answer this question w/100% accuracy thru my experience today. I myself trolled for hours/days reading don't show up....they do. Well, today I went for probation and was urine tested with a 12 panel cup. While I was holding this cup waiting to pee, I read the drugs it was testing for hoping subutex wouldn't be on there. Boom....I seen it. "Bup"! My heart sank....I had to fill the cup & give it to the p/o. She told me the obvious..."U failed, Showed up positive for subutex". Now starts more chaos. TRUST ME.! I trusted all the NO's on here and made my bad choice. The "reward" is NOT worth the risk! Sick or not!

My friend is not prescribed to subutex,but she takes it to avoid going back to pain pills .she has a job interview this week and I am wondering if it will show up on the test. Its for the hospital but I know people say they don't test for that unless you have to because its an expensive test. I just need some answers for her on what the chances are of the test being positive. Also, does it make a difference if your snorting them?

I take weekly random drug tests in st. Lucie co. At the court house where they "observe" you. I am trying to kick a pill addiction, but I do not want to feel sick. These tests are court ordered and for my dependency court case. I want my daughter home and want to pass, but I don't want to WD while I have to work 12 hr days waiting tables in a busy restaurant. Will saboxone show up in their 5\8\12 panel tests there? They are instant results. Can someone with experience answer me please?

I have this same problem....I was hooked on oils and now take subutex and suboxone here n there just for the body's recovered a lot overtime, though people just don't understand this drug. When used the right way it really helps someone who's been bad off before... they just see all the ones abusing the f*** out of it.

Tree, I understand your frustration, the good suffer for the wrong reasons. People abuse sub to feel high. That's why they have these clinics you go to on a daily basis and pay cash. I am disabled with a tumor on my spine and someone stole my pain meds out the mail. I have a police report but no doctor or hospital would help me. I was given a few subutex and took it for 5 days. I don't hardly have a craving. I just can't walk. No way it works rite if you use it rite. I will go back to my pain clinic at the end of the month.

If the test say "bup" buprenorphine then yes it will be positive but I just had random test for work and then like most test for the most abused drugs so depending on the panels really and unfortunately they don't tell you what they test for but I did pass the 5 panel so good luck

It will only show if sent to a lab, i have a few friends that have .been doing that for years. They put a quarter of pill in urine and make sure its crushed fine and mix and kept at room temp. If u have lab screening they can tell, but panel test it just shows as if taken it.

The subtext and saboxone will show up as the same thing. They are both used to detox.

No, No, Noooo! Drug testing looks for metabolites of the med, basically what is left after your body (liver, kidneys, etc.) has processed the drug. You will not get reliable info by dunking the med into urine. This is super-important to understand for high-stakes testing, e.g. custody, DSS, employment, surveillance reasons. The other thing that concerns me are DRUG INTERACTIONS leading to weird results. People talk about false-negatives, false-positive results. It's important to understand if any non-opiates (for example) and other drugs. I would hope docs and testing understand this, but it sounds like not....
