Suboxone: you have a legal prescription, when you take the drug test you need to tell them all medications you are on currently. What a way to start a new job, lying to your new employer. If you have a bonfire medical reason to be on this medication it should not interfere with employment.

Forensic drug testing requires that the only individual who needs know what medications you are taking is the Medical Review Officer. No one else has a right to this protected health information. Keep in mind however that the MRO has the obligation to inform the designated employer representative if there is a potential safety concern with whatever you are taking.
