Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone in urine


Avatar n tn 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?
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 Absolutely! I had the exact same problem in the beginning, when I was on a higher dose (16 mg./day). I once laid in bed for 72 hours. No withdrawal, but no sleep either. Here's what helped me: 1. Lowering the dosage. The trick with Suboxone is to take just enough to avoid withdrawal, but no more or side effects can occur, such as insomnia. Everyone is different, each has to find his own "just enough" dosage. You can't achieve that in just two days. Just lowering my dose by 2 mg.
Avatar n tn when I went down to 4mg a day my urine test came back that I had no suboxone in my body. this has been going on for 3months. my doctor has asked me if I am giving it a way or selling it or taking it all the first two weeks I have it. I say no. I am not doing any thing other then taking it ever day as you tell me to take it. I take it the same time ever day. I have even taking to urine test at the same appointment with some one watching me.
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 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.
1200909 tn?1306818681 nd tthey tested my urine, came back with blood in urine does anybody have blood in urine? and has anybody asked theirr doctor about the dark urine? if so, please let me know what they said please.
Avatar f tn Only my name and birthday in sharpie. I know it's sent to a lab. Either the lady that takes the blood and urine brings it to the lab or they pick it up. I'm not sure. My question and problem is that most likely my levels will low or not show buprenorphine at all. I really need to stay on this med for at least a few more months. My doctor is very cold and I'm scared he will kick me out. Not 100% sure, but still very worried. I told my counselor Fri about the stress I've had and how I've run out.
Avatar n tn I know someone who is currently taking Suboxone and is telling his wife that he needs to have a "dirty" urine once in a while so he can keep getting the Suboxone. It is my understanding that Suboxone is used to help an addict get off of prescription pills, so why would a doctor say this? He is trying to get Vicodin from someone, saying he needs to have a urine test and it has to come up that he is using in order for him to get the Suboxone.
Avatar n tn Are they including the urine drug test in that? You might be able to get it alittle cheaper if you shop around. Also shop around for the pharmacy for the suboxone, you'll find a big difference in them.
Avatar f tn can someone give me a precise amount of time that suboxone stays in your system based on daily use of approx. 8 mgs.....
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.
Avatar m tn Dukeee it is definitely recommended to dose on the suboxone in a doctors office. it is very important to be in pretty intense withdrawal before dosing with the suboxone or else you will put yourself into precipitated withdrawals. is that the doctor that the methadone clinic recommended?
Avatar m tn is the suboxone prescribed from a doctor or is he self-medicating?? suboxone can cause a dark urine color. if your fiance is taking suboxone he should also be working a recovery program. the subs are meant to help stop the cycle of active addiction and to help them work a recovery program and eventually come off the subs and live opiate free. has he gone to any na or aa meetings? has he been to counseling? i am the wife of a recovering addict.
Avatar n tn I am in the health adm field. I know little about Suboxone - except I have a family member on it for two years and he got sick of the Doctor charging $200/mth and quit abruptly. He is very sick. We are watching him closely. Should he see the Doctor again to taper off or how long will these withdrawals last.
366557 tn?1259103224 Hello and Welcome! Since Suboxone was only approved in this country in 2004, you may have been in the top 100 people to have gone on the program. I am sorry that it did not work out for you the first time, but this is a new day. My experience with Sub was short lived. I used it to detox off of pain meds, and was on it for 16 days. It was very helpful for me. As far as the benzos, you will need to discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar f tn 101 Dalmatians, if you put suboxone in your searcch bar it should give ya lots of good info on it Avis
Avatar m tn I had to taper off the perks, it took me a while to taper until the day the rehab center and my doctor told me to stop taking the perks for 24hrs, i did, my god the pain and the hell i was going thru, the day after i was meeting my doctor at the clinic to start the process in staring the Suboxone, when i woke up that day i was thinking that i was not going to make it, with the help of one of my trusted employees he helped me that morning, he knew what was going on, he picked me up at home and w
1349676 tn?1277916049 has to have a Special License to prescribe Suboxone. Suboxone has Naltrexone in it, so if you do use other types of Opiates while on it, it's supposed to act as a "Block." Suboxone does have Withdrawals and most people are "Tapered Off." Suboxone is not a "Wonder Drug," although for some it seems like it. You feel fine, no cravings, and you can go on with your life. No more lies, go to work, be a better parent, whatever you want to do.
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.
Avatar m tn You will get so lost in all of this and the whole program of Suboxone will be out the window. I don't agree with the Suboxone for the Norco in the first place but since you have come this far I say go for it and get clean. I wish you the very best. Let us know how you are doing.
Avatar f tn / 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.
237500 tn?1189759431 so you're thinking about suboxone? thats good .. suboxone does have an opiate in it, but the other drug prevents your from getting that 'high' feeling. When you called around, what prices did they give you for the office visits? Do you have rx covg? if so, more than likely you'll only have to pay your copay. i pay only $10 .. I pay $70/mo for the dr. visit and a drug screen urine test. Which is alot cheaper than some of the offices were charging.
Avatar f tn Now - she prescribed me a prescription for Suboxone. I have heard that this is very expensive. I talked to her about going to a family help center (which is actually right next door to her office) which they put you on a 10 day program and gradually reduce the dosage. The cost is about $1000 which includes ALL of the office visits, ALL the medication and talking with a therapist.
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 f tn 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.

1381087 tn?1279226927 Hello Again Bubba John, (Love your screen name. It makes me smile.) Is the drug Suboxone maybe? I am so sorry that you fell. Thank goodness that nothing is broken. Yes you have reached the heights of insult!! I am trying to make sense out of your most recent physician's rationale. What type of a physician did you last see? A GP, neurologist or what? How educated is she in PM?
Avatar f tn You can't get meds from different drs when you are going to a pain dr and if you go to somewhere like the ER you have to tell them you see a pain dr and they will call him or her. Most likely all the meds you have taking was in your urine and it will be found and the meds that you haven't taking that he did give you won't be found and that will be a problem.
