It really depends on what the place is looking for; While there is a Buperenorphine (Suboxone) specific drug test, not many places use it. According to my research, most places don't drug test for Suboxone at all. This is not to say that it will never show up, but it is unlikely.

If you do think you are at risk for it showing up, I would suggest informing them that you are on it, under a doctor's care. But from the majority of information i've read on the subject, you shouldn't be too concerned about it even showing up.

The half-life of Suboxone is anywhere between 24-72 hours; so I would suggest giving yourself a week or longer if you think you are going to be testing "specifically" for Suboxone. I know this isn't a 100% direct answer, but I hope it helps!

I was arrested for a dui. I am on subutex and have been for almost 3yrs. The dose is 4mg daily. Will it show up as an opiate?

No it will not show up as an opiate. There is a specific test for bupenorphine that will show subs(subutex and/or suboxone) present in your system.

I'm sure you prob found out by now but jus in case I thought I'd boyfriend was on subs before goin to the dr and he did take opiates the nite before to have them in his system because he was scared they wuldnt give them to him either if he told them he's just been taking subs..but the lady he meets with there is wonderful n very understanding..he did lie n told her he still too opiates but that he took subs a lot too bc he culdnt afford his habit anymore n he did have suns in his system..but my friend went to the same place n told them he's been taking subs n not opiates anymore n they still prescribed him them..I don't want to tell u to take opiates but if u ate a few perks the day before n like my bf say u do both or jus b honest n tell them u want to do the rite thing n get the help u need and don't want to b denied becUse ur not using anymore..tell them u want to do this legally and so on..but jus in case I wuld look n see if there's at least another sub dr thts close enuf for u to get to so if u try the honest thing n for any reason it doesn't work then u have a backup and u can try the same or diff approach..every dr is diff so u can never b certain..easiest thing to do honestly tho-call the dr's office and ask..don't give ur name or anythin n jus ask ..I hope everythin works out for

Yes it will show up as an opiate!!!!! I repeat it will show up on a urine test!! I am living proof. I thought it wouldn't either. It's what i have always been told. The judge gave me a drug test and I FAILED FOR OPIATES !!!!! I don't care how smart everyone thinks they are that says you have to test directly for bupe's or subs. The test they give now is ALL covered under opiates. The judge was going to sentence me to 3 1/2 years in the Department of Corrections!!! he gave me 30-45 days to get myself off of Suboxone and Subutex. Please take my advice!! I beg of you because your freedom is not worth losing over someone who thinks they are so educated in this matter and they are ALL WRONG!!!!!!

I am on probation, and in an out patient rehab program. I have has my prescription to Suboxone (Buprenorphine) for 3 months now. When i started out patient my urine tox's were being sent to a place called "MED LAB" because I had no insurance at the time and it was a lower cost substitute for member of this out patient program. Now that I have insurance my urine tox's are being sent to "QUEST DIAGNOSTICS". The first urine tox to go to QUEST comes back positive for BUPRENORPHINE (Suboxone) and MORPHINE?!?! None of my tests from MEDLAB have had this positive read. I swear on my kids I have taken nothing but my prescription since 9/16/13. My PO (Probation Officer), Rehab Counselor, & Suboxone Dr. all don't believe me. My research has shown that Beprenorphine is a derivative of Morphine (*definition of derivative - "A substance that can be made form another substance.") it is a derivative of the akalaid thebain which has a near identicle chemical structure to Morphine. (***If you google similarties of Morphine to Buprenorphine you will see all the things I'm referencing***)

I just can't imgaine I'm the first person this has ever happened to....DOESN"T ANYONE BELIEVE ME?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I believe you! My urine tox screen at the hospital came back positive for Morphine and all i had taken was one subutex approx. a day prior! It all makes sense now, thanks to your post! I lost my baby because everyone assumed i was on Heroin! Sub takers BEWARE! Good luck!

I thought a subutex urine screen is not a dip stick test: the facts are I'm in a Px clinic I go for my specimen give appt 20 days after last use of subutex. I wanted to know if It would show.

Some not all you people have no clue what you are talking about. I'm on state probation they test for suboxne subutex and all things you can imagine. You ain't got a scrip you're f***ed cause they watch you pee. I'm violated from it and it didn't leave my system for 14 days. So either get a script or face the the time your choice good luck. Oh and call a freaking probation officer to confirm or your local doctor pain etc... You need to wake up .

I am prescribed subatex but instead of taking the dose of 4 a day which is 32 mg I would insufflate only 16 mg, I was drugged tested on thxgvng and subs showed up. Got a second drugtest on fri and on wed the drugtest said I had no subatex in my system at all. How could this be if I have been taking it everyday the same way nothing had changed. Just askn. I heard insufflating doesnt hit the saliva.???

Not for employment drug screens!!!! If the judge gives you a test of course it's going to test for subs!!! So it actually DOES NOT show up on an EMPLOYMENT drug screening.
