Common Questions and Answers about How long is suboxone in urine


Avatar n tn The half life is long at 37 hours. It takes a special test to detect it and regular drug screens to not come up positive for drugs.
Avatar f tn oney, I've been in your predicament before & I'm in the same boat u are again. I've been on subs for a little over 5 months now & I still have a problem sometimes with taking 1 extra a day & running out early. I'm prescribed 2 8mg daily & I know it's the addiction in my brain telling me if i take 1 more I can accomplish more that day. But the fact is that's untrue.
Avatar m tn All the hype on suboxone is gonna gonna turn and bite everyone in the *** because I tapered for 3 mo. down to a QUARTER TAB but two days later it all came back feirce including about 4 new ones compared to methadone. Smell, taste GONE ability to self motivate GONE along with the normal symptoms.
Avatar m tn Well I have a very close relative of mine who needs to know how long suboxone stays in your system. They havent took sub ever before but did for the first time on April 29 taking 2mg and on April 30 taking another 2mg, then never took it since. They have a drug test on May 28 and they are very nervous that this sub will show up. Does anyone know if the sub will be out of their system by then for a drug screen? Thanks in advance for any answers.
Avatar f tn Have you attended any alanon or naranon meetings? How long was he in rehab? Was he put on the suboxone in rehab and just never came off of it? Do you know what dose he is on? Does he drink alcohol? I understand your concern, worry and frustration. There is always hope.

Avatar f tn Plus the test can tell levels of suboxone and how much is in your system and how often it's taken. After alot of great advice I've gotten I think honesty is best.
1200909 tn?1306818681 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!
Avatar m tn My question is, did you taper? Also, exactly how long did your withdrawal symptoms last? I feel like this is lasting forever!! I know that it will get better and I will normal again I would just like to know when?? I will fight this demon, I will keep strong.
Avatar m tn (I know Buprenorphine is not new, but in the context of treating opioid addicts in the U.S., Suboxone is a relatively new treatment.) I also have access to a psychiatrist who says it is very smart that I do a lot of research on my medications and get advice from people in similar situations. In the last few months, all I've ever wanted to find, was somebody like Robert_325, who has been on the "patient's" side, but also has some experience in helping other people.
Avatar f tn it takes also longer than most opiates, like 4-5 days too show up and then it hits you symptom after symptom and it last for over a month but the severity of it is dependant on how much and how long youve taken sub...more and more is being learned about suboxone and the wd's after long term use is like methadone...the average half-life is 37 hrs.
Avatar n tn if a person stops, his/her tolerance decreases, and then when the person gets a script for a few that person often uses them compulsively, sometimes with other respiratory depressants-- since they are no longer at risk for urine monitoring coming up positive. I am an advocate of long-term Suboxone. If a person is doing well, most doctors decrease the frequency of visits-- perhaps to every three months if the person is stable for more than a year.
Avatar f tn I have doctor prescibed valium for another problem. Should I get more subutex? Will it show in my urine. I was trying to stop it before the urine test. I am waking with a big knot in my stomach and the subutex makes it go away. I dont know if I should get more or try to ride it out. I have been a substance abuser for 15 years, every drug you can name. But at this point have brought it down to the occasional bag of smack.
401095 tn?1351395370 When you do see your doctor, he or she may request urine samples to see how well Suboxone is working for you. Tell your doctor if you experience withdrawal symptoms, since this could mean you need to have your dose adjusted. During the maintenance phase, you and your doctor may want to talk about counseling options. Many patients and their doctors find that treatment for opioid dependence works best when medical treatment with Suboxone is combined with counseling.
237500 tn?1189759431 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.
Avatar f tn "Our relationship is perfect besides this" THIS is huge!! This is something that will always come first before your childern, you, your home, your job, his job, your families. See, to an addict, and your husband is an addict for sure, he will lie, cheat, steal, anything to get what he wants and needs. Not to say that there aren't people out there that get clean and stay that way. But I want you to know that most of the time its a long journey to get there.
Avatar f tn I am taking 16mg of suboxone a day, how long will the subs last in my urine? I have been taking subs for about 3 months and i would have like a day or two break in between taking it sometimes. how long will the subs give me a hot urine for??? will it still be 72hrs to clean out of my system or will it take longer since i have been taking it for 3 months.?
Avatar m tn Things like this make me mad. I've learnt that it never pays to be honest with doctors. I wish you would of just lied to him and continued with your taper plan because it seems you have willpower to stick it. At 80mg going CT will not be fun and is manageable. Is there anyway you can space out the rest of your pills so you can make your road trip. Suboxone is like a last resort kinda thing and is a long term commitment.
1349676 tn?1277916049 What I've learned about Suboxone is that it is effective for "withdrawal" on a short-term "1 week" basis. However, the reason most people feel so well on Suboxone is because it acts as an opiate in the brain. The reason it works well for Withdrawals is because it is an "Agonist/Antagonist." It "Fills In" the same Receptors Sites in the Brain as Opiates do, and it "Pushes Out" the Opiates. Any Dr.
Avatar f tn I too know that Suboxone is potentially addicting - anything that is an opiate is. I don't plan to be on this for too long since I really want to be clean. I am just sick of everything about it. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE the drug....LOVE IT. I've never taken anything that makes me feel so good and happy all the time. But something that is THAT good can not be GOOD for you. Ya know?
Avatar m tn had a hefty habit there! Suboxone DOES work very well to take w/d symptoms away, but the PURPOSE of Sub is more than isn't just a way around w/d (for the vast majority of people). If you've been using for a while, and had many relapses while trying to get clean, then Sub is an understandable choice for you. It will buy you some "clean" time, let you live a normal life, without w/ds for now, so you can dive into the most important part...
Avatar f tn so the extra medicine will stay in your blood instead of voiding in your urine.. and as more receptors in your brain become free, the Suboxone will attach to them. I can't explain everything there is to know in this little text box.. There really is a lot to it and people just have no clue. It's not a "miracle" cure and like everything, there is a catch.
781880 tn?1238114088 At this point, being a healthy young man who raises 2 kids on his own, and works, and is in school. I need to know, how long will the acute detox last? I might already be over it but it's hard to tell because I feel achy and ****** but not as bad as kicking a dope habit. How long before I feel happy to get out of bed and make breakfast for the kids. How long before I digest food properly?
1381087 tn?1279226927 What type of a physician did you last see? A GP, neurologist or what? How educated is she in PM? First of all according to all I have read and all I have been told, a diuretic will not wash drugs out of your system. If it did every illegally user certainly be looking for them before a drug screen. If you still are applying the patch as you always have I cannot imagine that you are going through a withdrawal. If you have not decreased your narcotic intake it seems far fetched to me.
Avatar f tn Please understand that your really not helping yourself and when you live with CP day in day out you know how difficult it is and with out having the medications to help with the pain it is very difficult to say the least. It is always best to be honest with your doctor and only get pain medications from your PM doctor. When trust is broken it is nearly impossible to regain. I hope things work out for you.
Avatar m tn How long does suboxone stay in your company screens for it with a urine test for bubes.
Avatar n tn I'm up to 10 to 15 a day now and take five just to get me moving in the morning. This is no way to live. How long and how hard are the with drawals from it? I don't want to live my life around this drug anymore. Just a word of encouragment some times is what I think I need and to know that I am not alone.
Avatar n tn several years ago (when suboxone first started to be a popular medication in the U.S.) there was no tox screen to specifically detect suboxone (or subutex) but it goes without saying that law enforcement (and other agencies whom would want or need to determine suboxone use) were working top speed on solving that issue. It didnt take em long. Now, there is a tox screen to detect suboxone use. Having said that, suboxone still wont show up on most standard drug screenings.
Avatar m tn Its my understanding that Suboxone stays is in your system for at least 72 hours and has trace metabolites that can be detected in urine for up to 10 days (depending on strength and how long one has been on it). If you've been clean for 18 days you should have no worries.
