I took one yesterday and will possibly have to take a drug test for a job I really need, and that is the only one I have took in a long time. So will it show up or how long does it take to get out of my system since that is the only one I have took in a while? Please Help
Studies have shown that it takes around 11 days for your body to eliminate buprenorphine (the opiate component of suboxone).
The buprenorphine has a relatively long half life of 37 hours.
See: https://www.drugs.com/pro/suboxone.html - scroll down to elimination.

It will show + for Bupenorphine only for about 2 weeks after your last dose. Despite the fact that it is in the opiate family, it will NOT show up as an opiate, the reason is that it is absorbed under the tongue and has naloxone also, this is also why it doesn't turn into morphine or thebaine in your blood. The company that makes it says it can be detected up to 24 days after last dose, not sure if it was in urine tho. If the place u try 4 a job at mails the test to a lab, they may check 4 bupenorphine.
After taking suboxone for more then 5 years(not recommended)..i can tell you that the "self-life"(the time you can feel the affects in your body and not go into withdrawal) are 3 days.In your favor suboxone is relatively new in some places&they have to have a test specifically for buernorphine,which is not that common!If you only took one you should be fine!
I was on suboxone for 6 days. One 8 mg strip in the morning. It has been about 52 hrs since my last strip. Since I was only on it 6 days, do you think it is still in my system? (I just didn't like the way it made me feel, that is why I stopped taking it.) And I thought that since I had only been on it a short time that I could stop it without weaning. So far, I do not feel any side affects. Again, do you think it is still in my system? Thank you
