Does Suboxone Show Up On Drug Test ?
If you are currently taking Suboxone and are scheduled for an upcoming drug test, you may be concerned about whether or not the drug will be detected. Suboxone is prescribed to treat opiate addiction. Unlike methadone, which is highly managed by a professional clinic, you will receive your prescription for the entire month, so you are responsible for administering it properly. It is not unusual for a clinic to drug test their clients to make sure that they are taking the drug as prescribed.
5-10 Panel Drug Test
Suboxone can only be detected in Suboxone or buprenorphine drug tests. Most 5-10 panel drug tests only detect pure opiates such as heroin and since Suboxone is a synthetic drug, it will not be detected.
Suboxone can be detected in a Suboxone/buprenorphine urine drug test for 2-4 days after the last does was taken. It does not matter if the drug is in the form of a tablet or film. If you are planning a pre-scheduled drug test, you should definitely speak with your physician, if you have any concerns about testing positive.
Verify Drug Test Type
Before you agree to submit to any type of drug test, you should take the time to request the type of drug test that is going to be administered. There are an unlimited variety of drug tests that are utilized for random testing. Health tests will not detect Suboxone, so you do not have to worry when submitting to a cholesterol, thyroid, or HIV test.
