I like.. really like the Big H and 4s. Now, it is doing me.. instead of me doing it. Looking in to the Suboxone treatment, I was told a drug screen would be given. Should I pass or fail this drug screen? Of course failing it would be much easier.. but, would rather not. My insurance requires doc authorization bfore considering paying for script. Doc would need to state my dependancy on the above 'likes'. It I am negative, he/she may not get just how bad this thing is.. if I am positive.. well, you know. But, I do not want to miss up this chance and can not afford meds without insurance help. So, should it be negative or positive to ensure I get the help I desperately need. Please answer quickly
You should test positive for opiates at the subs drs office in order to get on suboxone, and donesubs is right on the money, very few employers run a bupenorphine panel in a drug screen, it will ONLY show up as bupenorphine. Hospital emplyers, DOT and trucking jobs do screen for bupe, but even most probations and courts don't screen for it. You will have to be completely opiate free for at least 24 hours to start the suboxone, or the previous opiate you have taken will fight for the receptor site space with the suboxone, precipitating or dropping them both off the space and intense withdrawal will start. Since you have been riding the horse, see if you can find a dr who will start you on subutex, the sister med, it does the same thing, just doesn't have the naloxone that subs has and it is an easier switch for methadone users and H users. Hope this helps.
