I have used heroin for a few months. Quit and took a few strips of 8mg subs. Got BACK on heroin for a few days like an idiot. I have a voluntary drug test I want To take at a clinic to present to my lawyer for a court case... my question is I smoked a small amount of heroin for the passed few days. I know heroin leaves your urine in 4 days. But if I need to take some suboxone to relieve the urge. If I take 16mg of suboxone let's say tomorrow. How long does suboxone stay in your system?? Will it show up on my test? I do not use suB's daily. This has just been a on and off thing. I want to test before 23rd of January 2013. It's Xmas night. And I smoked tonight. If I take subs tomorrow or next week. Just 2 strips. Will it show in my system?? Anyone with any information please let me know your opinion. Thanks!

Suboxone is not detected on Normal urine test. You would need a special test to detect unless subs r specifically being tested for by like, a sub clinic, it will not show up..if they do have a sub test then I'm not positive. I know subs have a half life tho ...

Thanks for the reply!.. what's half life though?
I am getting a vol drug screen at a clinic. Just for marijuana mostly. Since I have a current case pending for just that.
Slipped up and did H once again yesterday. Might just cold Turkey it. And let it drain from my system before I go take a teSt. Will the clinic marijuana test also test for heroin? I've just never taken a test. Wondering if I need to give it 4 days before I test.
What ya think??

No place usually just test for only one drug. They usually test for AT LEAST the big five (pot, coke, heroin, amphetamine and PCP) using whats called a 5 panel test. It's like a pregnancy test that has a couple strips of paper they dip in the urine (one for each substance and little line come up on whatever your positive for. *PS no place tests for Suboxone. It has to be SPECIFICALLY tested for and usually only Suboxone clinics do that to make sure your taking it when they prescribe it.

A half life is the amount of time it take Half of a drug to leave you system. Suboxone's half life is I believe 72 hours, so half the drug is out of ur system in 72 hours. So If you took 1 mg then in 3 days only .5 mg would be present in your system then in 3 more days only .25mg and so on. Heroin is very short. That's why addicts can only go about 8 hours before withdrawal kicks in.

I'm male, in my late 20's, 5'11" and about 160 lbs. I sniffed one bag (about .1 gram) on a Friday night at around 7pm. Took a 5 panel urine drug test at court that following Monday at around 11am. Came up clean on the spot. I did drink a lot of water during the weekend and peed a lot but made sure I didn't drink too much on that Monday because if you pee clear they will give it a closer look. Usually it takes 2-4 days to get out of your system. I have a fast metabolism so I'm usually on the short end for drug tests.

Drinking a lot of water and exercise do help flush your system out quicker because opium is water soluble and exercise speeds up your metabolism and helps flush out toxins from your body. If your not a heavy and/or daily user and in decent shape then you'll probably be good in about 2-3 days.

You can always go and buy a self drug test from Walgreens or CVS if you want to check yourself.

Billy thanks man ...your reply helped the most. I just keep doing little bits at a time for the last couple weeks. Little 20 bags. Just smokin. Im heavy set. Like 6'1, 250
But i do ride bikes and drink alot of water and fluid.
All i really needed was someone to tell me a similar experience. Im not even getting tested by court. This is a volunteer test so my lawyer can present to the judge a clean urine test. Mainly for marijuana ...which ive stayed away from. But the H is just too easy to slip up on. Ill just stop for 4 days excersize and flush if i go to a clinic. I might just take a walgreens MJ test only and present that. Just wasnt sute what to do.
Thanks again man. U da man!!

Suboxone is a very expensive test they won't test for that on a standard drug test... To test for suboxone it is a separate test they have to specifically test for suboxone... So u can take suboxone up to the day u take ur test... I took suboxone b4 prescribed n passed every drug test even through my PO.. they test for drugs not suboxone... I promise u this one... N suboxone even pushes opiates out of ur system... Hope I helped

I think, considering your addiction and relapse from trying to go cold turkey without any medical help you should probably look into getting into a sub program legitimately. You already have the only requirements needed, being an addict and wanting to stay clean. It took me two+ years to finally do it and I can honestly say that I had NO withdrawal symptoms other then s migraine and even then I didn't feel like dying from cleaning the house or walking across the room. I got high Friday and started subs Saturday. Been clean ever since and seriously feel great, my old self before meeting my weakness.
Good luck babe. It sucks but if your serious about it, subs can be a miracle.

My son tested positive for H 6 days after quitting. He almost got kicked out of the sub program but they also tested his sub levels and they could see that he was taking them as RX'd. So, ya, give yourself a good 7 days to clean up just to be safe. And good luck everyone. You can do this. You really really can. There is no future in heroine. None.

Bossofme just curious how big is ur son i kno they say these things also depend on ur size 6 days seems like a long time for H i kno MANY ppl who use and have passed po tests in mostly 3day's most of them r also regular users n don't eat much so they r
smaller ppl so i was just curious if the reason it was in ur sons system for so long is bc he is bigger or if i should just b on the safer side like u said bc u kno ppl aren't always truthful either wen they say things esp wen discussing the last time they really used if they passed or failed a test i get it its an embarassment thing i just want to kno truthful ly so i can look out for myself ...thanks

No vics in your system, takes 72 hrs for opiates to get out, might wanna find a cpl before your appt. And unless your doc tests for subs, which is becoming more common now, you wont test positive for anything. Bupe is ingredient tested in Suboxone. It dies test as an opiate.
