Urgent help: could I pass a drug screen if taking 1 suboxone 8mg for 7-10 days from march 20 to 29?
- 5 Apr 2011 by wthomas37801
I had been taking Suboxone 8mg for the last 30-45 days maybe two/three times a week. Then March 20th (give or take a day) till March 29th (7 to 10 days) I ended up taking the Suboxone almost daily, if not daily. March 29th I abrubtly stopped because of being ordered to go in for a uriary drug screen at Labcorp by April 8th 2011. I am on a few other meds which are prescribed and they are; Metoprolol 25mg (a beta blocker) twice daily, Adderrall 10mg (dexto-amphetamine) twice daily, Ultram 50mg (non-opiod pain reliever) 8 pills daily and Klonopin 1mg (anxiety pill) daily. Will these medications effect how rapidly/slowly the suboxone leaves my system? If they slow how rapidly the suboxone leaves my body then I'm guessing it would be from my metabolisim, my medications: Ultram (as it slows my digestive system down and causes me constipation) and possibly the Klonopin. Here are a few physical details about myself to possibly help answer this question. I'm a 33 year old Male, 5'11, 187 pounds and not very active because of anxiety issues. How long should it take to be out of my system... if they even check for it. Also this isn't a court or probation ordered drug screen, just a screen ordered by my Psychiatric Doctor.
(1.)Will it show up on a 7, 10, or 12 panel drug screen? (2.)Between now Tuesday 4/5/2011 and Friday 4/8/2011 when should I take the urine screen according to the information above? (3.)What can I do to help clear out my system?

Updated Details and Comments pertaining to my Original Question
This urinary drug screen was ordered by my psychiatric doctor along with a CBC With Differential, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (fasting), Hepatic Function Panel, and Lipid Panel. The ordering of the drug test is nothing surprizing as it is their policy to give them periodicly. I had not had one since July of 2008 so I knew there would be one ordered sooner or later. As far as the type of panel I am thinking it will probably be a 10 panel, maybe even a 7 panel because of all the costs associated with the additional tests. These costs are going to be billed to my states mental health insurance witch is SaftyNet so going on this assumption along with their being no obvious/suspicious reason for the ordering of the drug test I would imagine the behavioral health center I go to would want to keep costs to a minimum. This center only provides care for the uninsured and there funds come from the state. ANYONE PLEASE ADD YOUR COMMENT TO MY QUESTION!!!

It depends on what kind of drug test you are taken. If its for work or a home drug test. yes you will pass it. If it is through probabtion sorry no. they test you for everything and since suboxone is still considered a narcodic. than they will be able to determine that you had been taken it. but my suggestion would be to tell your p.o if that is the issue that you need to be prescribed to this medication and he should help you find a doctor. If he is a understand or she is understanding. But if it's for a job no they should not be able to determine it. oh and by the way suboxone only stays in yr system for 72 hours and it doesn't matter wat meds yr on nothing can cause anything to slow down any process. hope i was some help to you . But like i suggeset you should prob find a doc and get prscribed to it. it would help your cauases alot ... instead of having to worry all the time. and you can withdraw from not taken suboxone so it could help with that as well.

I truly hate to disagree with anyone so please don't take offense, none is meant. The only way that suboxone will show up is if they test specifically for bupenorphine, and they may not. Most probation offices and courts do NOT check for it, you may be in the clear. That being said, even when not on the medications you have listed, you will test positive for suboxone for approximately 11 to 24 days after the last dose, this info is from the company that makes it, reckitt-benckhiser. Each panel has to be paid for even if the sample is sent to the lab, and if the company, doctor, or establishment did NOT pay for the bupe panel, you will be in the clear. Agencies that do tend to check for it are the DOT, trucking companies, and hospital employement drug screens. You didn't ask this part, but as far as the constipation goes, subs are famous for causing it.
If you will really increase your water intake, eat more fruit and get some exercise, it really will help with this problem. I was having quite a time with that, and the water really seemed to do the most good, but the walking and fruit helped too. Best of Luck, Patti
