How long does suboxone stay in your system?
26 Jun 2011
one member here had to find out for a court case and she called reckitt-benckiser, the manufacturer of suboxone. They told her she could test positive for up to 24 days. Suboxone is a long acting medication, so, that is why a person might test positive for so long afterwards, it is a guess on anyone's part exactly how long, but this person passed after 11 days on a urine and hair follicle test and she was really sweating that test. I think if a person takes it for an extended period of time to treat opiate withdrawal, they probably are the one who test positive for up to 24 days on a mail to the lab test, but it is really not supposed to be used off and on like you did. The reason I state this is you could get into a situation where you will make your brain used to the long acting effect of suboxone, and the opana is not going to be as effective.
I try to use an image that people can kind of understand, so, bear with me here, imaging both suboxone and methadone as stretching the brain receptor sites it works on out like a rubber band, with repeated use, it will stay stretched, then your opana will need to be upped in dose in order for you to be comfortable. This is the best imagery I can come up with this early in the morning to explain this to you. It is not a good thing for other reasons to switch back and forth either, not judging you here, just trying to keep you safe and healthy. If they mail your drug test off to the lab, you may need to wait longer than 10 days, I would think you would anyway.
