had back surgery last year and switched from pain meds to suboxone and am curious to see if suboxone shows up on drug screens?

NIK is right, unless they check specifically for bupenorphine, you will test negative. If you have a DOT job, are a truck driver, work at a hospital, or some other highly screened job, chances are they are not going to check of the box to look for bupenorphine, Even most probation offices and courts don't check for it.

djmattc5643, Boy, that's a mouthful. Anyhow, good for you to be on Suboxone instead of the pain meds. I understand the need for pain meds, especially with back pain, but I also understand the addiction I had. Suboxone won't show up on a drug test unless they are specifically looking for it. most drug test don't test for that. For each drug they add to a test, the more it cost. So they are usually looking for a specific few. Hope that helps. NIK
