Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone and urine tests

suboxone

I have been on Suboxone for 28 days now and my urine is VERY dark and has a strong smell to it. Anybody ever have that happen while taking Suboxone? Thanks for replies!
How long does suboxone stay in your system? Will 1 pill effect a urine screen? Can it be detected in the urine? If so, how long till 1 pill wears off?
, it sent me thru the roof, i started with 8mg, waited 2 hours, doc said to try another 8 mg, i did that until i had taken a full 32 mg, at that point doc told me to only do 8mg-12mg the next day and prescribed clonidine, which did help (the more suboxone i was taking the worse i felt), i have now been on suboxone for almost full 8 weeks and still waiting for the releif to "kick in", waiting to feel like it "might" save my life???
I was on suboxone for 7 months. At first I took them as planned and it was going well. After a month or so I relapsed. I relapsed several times. I know this was my fault and I have no one else to blame. My question is about sub regulations. During treatment I failed 2 drug tests, which should have caused me to be kicked out of the program. The Dr. never even mentioned it and kept filling my script, even after a 3rd failed drug test.
I did so well with it. But, there is always a but.... My urine tests were coming back as using benzo's which I stopped doing. One day it would be negative and the very next day it would show as positive. What is up with that? Now I have been removed from suboxon and going to get it anyway. Help!!!
/ As far as I know, he was on that for about 2 months and then switched to Suboxone. Which he sniffed as well. then he began getting the strips and i started to feel less un-attracted to him. We have spoken to a doctor and are currently trying to get him into an outpatient program. He has perc 5's on him and never took them. I asked him for them the next day and they were still there.
Suboxone or Xanax, he just couldn't do both anymore. I chose Xanax, and still take it. I can't help but think of the DEA as "Big Brother." When they reluctantly approved Suboxone for addiction treatment, I wonder if they said "well, okay, we'll let the dirty, low-life junkies have their Suboxone, but we can't have them being TOO comfortable. They have to suffer a little, don't they? So no Benzo'o!, even if it's indicated!
i'm involved with children services and i have tests and they test for it in my system. i'm worried that they will try to take my children if i say i'm done taking subs and they still show up. these people are shadey. thanks for your input.
And since I am recognizing this now (thankfully) I think I am going to do a lot more research on Suboxone and possibly engage in the treatment. I need to stop thinking only a week out on my recovery and think long term. And if Suboxone is going to help me think long term, then I am in. I will keep eveyone posted on my progress.
First off let me say that I've never used Fentanyl ever and haven't had to do a urine test. I do take vicodin for my pain. But what I wanted to say is kind of what you were talking about, I've been reading on the posts lately and it does seem like there are quite a few people that are failing the urine tests with the fentanyl.
does suboxone affect pregnancy test at home, i've missed 4periods and urine home test says negative but i think i have pregnancy symptoms.
Yes there are ways to tamper with them often addicts will get some elses uriine go into the bath room and use the other urine .I have heard of people putting suff in the urine so it wont show drugs. honeslty I would go with your gut and it you really want I drug test i would look into blood or hair they are alot more accreate .I will say this too H is the hardest drug there is to get and stay off of .Most people have to do long term rehab for some more then once to get off H.
I currently take 1 1/2 suboxone strips. I take a whole in the morning and the half about 3 in the afternoon. I also take ritalin as prescribed daily. When I get my urine tests back every two weeks the lab results say that my levels are too low. It is coming up negative for nor buprenorphine. They say it could be there but it is under the cut off of 30 mg/ml .
You THINK you're helping her by providing urine for her tests, but you're not. If she is in a sub program and is still using, then something isn't working. She either needs to sort that out with the clinic by being HONEST or find another kind of treatment, perhaps inpatient? You keep saying that this ex shouldn't have custody, and you blame her relapses on your daughter. You are not making your daughter accountable for any of her actions.
If she was serious about her recovery, she would be working harder to stay clean and CERTAINLY not asking you to help her pass her urine tests when she clearly wouldn't. She would recognize that she needs to LEARN how to handle situations as they arise..and handle them without drugs. I'm very glad to see that you're putting accountability on her as well. She is equally guilty in this situation where the kids are concerned.
Keep up the vitamins and supplements and give it time. Smoking pot will help with the nausea but it shows up in urine tests and might not be worth the risk. Wednesday is my one year anniversary for my first back surgery. I woke up from the surgery sick as a dog and I'm still sick a year later. Are you on Clonodine along with the suboxone? It helps a little. I wear a patch.
Hey everybody ~ Today is my 8th day on Suboxone and it has been an interesting experience, for sure. I found that I get VERY sleepy after I take a dose, so I have adjusted the time of my daily dosage to every night right before I go to bed. There are lots of little kinks that I am getting worked out, but I am hoping to have it all fine tuned in the coming weeks. SO - here is my concern - I should have started my period this past Monday…So as of today, I am 4 days late.
I have been taking Suboxone for 3yrs and I am pregnant w/ my 2ND child while on suboxone. I also know of another girl who has had 2 babies while taking suboxone. My 1st child I had while taking suboxone is ABSOLUTELY perfect. He will be 2 in Dec. He weighed 7lbs. and 3 oz @ birth. When I had him, the hospital knew I was on this medication and monitored him just to make sure he was ok and he never showed any signs of WDs.
the doctor who prescribes it often tests ur urine...there is a difference in the 2 as he wants to be sure u are taking the sub and not taking narcotics so it would seem that sub does not mimic a narcotic on a standard drug screen...there are expensive screens that can differentiate but i would tend to think it would not show up on a standard 5 panel screen....i do know someone who paseed their drug screen/5 panel where i work..
Is it possible for a false positive or alcohol in a urine test if youre diabetic? Im in a suboxone clinic and I get tested every two weeks. I was positive two consecutive times in July when I had my toe amputated and then it was fine now I tested positive again in November two consecutive times again. Back in July I had a UTI and believe I might again.
Are you still taking the Sub? For how long and how much? Suboxone is W A Y stronger than vicodin, and MUCH harder to come off of.
I get up in the afternoon and go on my laptop until I go to bed around 4am, and then I repeat the same thing the next day. I am extremely constipated and have no energy. I know I need to get off Suboxone, but I don't feel strong enough to and the more time that goes by, the weaker I get. There was only 1 time that I was ready to ween myself off Suboxone. It was after being on it for 6 months and a psychiatrist had put me on an anti-depressant.
My doc started me on 3 8mg Suboxone a day and now Im down to 1/2 a 8mg Suboxone a day. That took about 6 months so far. As far as how long. Wait at least 48 hours after your last dose of Methadone. If you take Suboxone sooner you will only be hurting yourself as you will get REALLY sick. (you may know that already) You have to be in stages of withdrawl from Methadone for Suboxone to work.
Not sure seems like I am having more pain then I did before I stopped the pills however I am not have any withdraw symptoms so I must be getting enough of the suboxone. I would suggest that you go to suboxone.com and read up about the suboxone. I did a lot of research before I started taking it. It will tell a lot of the do's and don'ts about it. Especially read the side effects and about the intended use of suboxone.
YES I HAVE TOLD THE TRUTH, I have weekly urine tests and I had to have a letter from my family dr. Naming exactly what drugs i was taking, which incl. codeine, trazadone, imovane, valium, to enable me to have methadone carries. I also have diagnoses from psychiatrist! In fact i got water with my methadone no juice and 6 carries to boot, so if that isn't a potential for a disaster, if he didn't trust that i don't misuse my medication, i would think that would be more harmful then subutex.
I have been taking percocet 5/325 and tramadol 50mg for the past three years and to my surprise I was drug tested and tested positive for suboxone and this was from the gc/ms test how could this be I have never taken anything like that I did take a valium and that was it so im so upset because my doctor will only give me tylenol with codeine and its not working what can I do and how could this happen?
There can be many reasons for a false positive test. Sometimes, certain urine cup tests can give false positives. If you know you didn't take what they're saying showed up, then insist on a retake with a blood test.
I don't drink but my urine tests are positive for alcohol. Im also diabetic. Im about to be kicked off a suboxone program and I feel helpless.
I honestly don’t use anymore. I have asked around and a friend of mine (also prescribed Suboxone) would use someone else’s urine, place a small piece of Suboxone in the urine, and let it dissolve (she didn’t want marijuana showing up). She told me when she did that she had the same problem; a faint line would show up on both types of tests as well. I am afraid I will get dropped from my doctor. I don’t understand and if anyone does, please explain how this is happening.
