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 prescription 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 till my urine's clean?

Suboxone's half life is between 24 to 37 hours depending on your metabolism in other words the amount of buprenorphine will decrese by half after that time elapses 8 to 4, 4 to 2 and so on...

if you have a legit prescription for the stuff, it doesn't matter if you test positive for it. you are legally allowed to be taking that substance. if you have a prescription for morphine you can't get fired for testing positive for opiates.

The above poster is correct, if you are legally taking it as prescribed by your doctor, then you need to make them aware of it when you go in for your test.

In some instances, it will negate the entire test, depending on which type they are using.

Some places will just do the test anyway, then if they get a positive result, they will call you to ask what you are taking and they will ask for your doctor's information to confirm it.

I was tested twice a week in my out patient rehab program for three months. I have never had suboxone show up on any of the tests. Nor were their any false positives. However I dont know if suboxone shows up in a hair test. If your doctor did give you a perscription then bring either a doctors note or your pharmacy reciept to the test just to be safe, so they dont make any assumptions. If you dont have either, then it will be out of your system in 24 hours.

Unless you are applying for a job that requires you to fly a plane, taking thid drug, with a legitimate prescription would be reported to your employer as a negative screen. I use to do physicals, drug screens for a state, as well as fir interstate CDL drivers. If your screen comes back positive, you will get a call from the physician, at the lab where your test was done. You will be asked to provide the name of the medications you are taking, annd then asked to provide the name of the prescribing physician, his contact info. and where the script was filled. You may also have to fax all of this info along with a copy of the lable on the prescription bottle, to the lab. Once they verify that you are taking the drug legally, your screen will be reported to your employer as negative. If you are a professional CDL driver, it isyour responsability to evaluate the drug's effect on you, as each person responds differently. If you feel like the drug is impairing your ability to drive, it is your responsability not to get behind the wheel. This is no different than the decision to drive or not to drive, after consuming alcohol. What employers who are drug testing are looking for are people using illegal drugs, or legal, controlled substances, without a ligitimate prescription from a licensed physician. Hope this relieves some of your pre-drug test anxiety.

My husband has a prescription for Suboxone 8 mg. strips filled July 2011 and since he has been trying to ween himself off, he cuts the 8 mg. piece into 16 pieces. This would give him enough medicine for two years with the amount he was prescribed. He just started a new job at a coal company that is trying to fire him for being on Suboxone saying that he couldn't take it, even though the prescription is good for one year.

DO NOT LISTEN TO it is like any other pill and will be clean in a few days. The halflife of suboxone is around 40 hours and oxycodone is only at 4.5 hours. Also it stores in your fat like THC. I wish I could tell you an approximate time that you would pee clean but I am trying to find that out myself. Everyone is different but you can get an idea if you do the math. You would have to know what the tests max nano count would be though and be real good in math which I am not. Even then it would only put you in the ballpark. You would have to know your body fat percent and how many calories you burn, how long and how much you have taken it and all kinds of stuff that I don't understand. The 7 panel tests will not detect it, but most places are starting to use the 12 panel test which WILL test for suboxone. My guess is that it would take about a month to get out. My advice would be to go pay alot of money to a place like labcorp and have your own urine test done. If positive then get a legal scrip if you don't already have one. I showed up positive for Oxy and though I had a scrip and the positive turned into a negative, I was still reported to my surpervisor and had to go to the doctor that my workplace has and prove I was fit for duty.

I am in a very strict legal program called drug court and the urine tests we have to take are pretty frequently. The tests are random and I have to go pee in a cup on average twice a week. If you fail a drug test they put you straight in jail when you go to court that week. I had a test today, and afterwards I had a weak moment and used 8mg of suboxone.It really sux cause I have really been working hard to stay clean and Im really upset cause I have been clean for almost 3 months and have had all clean drug screens. Is it possible for me to get the suboxone out of my system in 3 to 4 days??? If so, what would be the best thing for me to do to help rush it out of my system? I would be extremely greatful for any advice anyone has!!! thank you
