... would it show up ?
23 Mar 2011
Are you asking if the suboxone would show up in a drug test like for employment? If so, it will show up as an opiate because that's what it is. A "urine drug test done at the lab"... your doc's lab or whose? If its your Sub doc, then he is just making sure you are doing what you should be... LMK what/who is ordering the ua and I will try to answer better. Thanks, Rock

Sorry to disagree with Rockstar, but it will NOT show as an opiate, although technically it is one. It was designed so they can check the progress of opiate addicts in the suboxone treatment program and they somehow designed it NOT to test positive for opiate, so they could see if the person had a relapse or was still using. It will only show as bupenorphine, and many companies don't pay to have the bupe panel checked. If this job is for truck driving, DOT, or hospital employment, you can almost bet they WILL check for bupenorphine. Even many court systems and probation offices don't check for bupenorphine. You may or may not have an RX for suboxone but if you do, you need to bring the prescription bottle with you for the test. Suboxone/bupenorphine will test positive for 11 to 24 days after the last dose. Labs can definitely check for it, but if you office doesn't require and pay for the panel, they won't check for it. Sorry to disagree with anyone, hope no one gets upset with me for disagreeing with them.
