Would 5 days be long enough for 8mg of Suboxone to be out of a person urine if used every day for two weeks
?

No: The opiate will be in your system for longer than 5 days, even at this relatively low dose. More importantly, there is a reason you wisely chose to take suboxone and you may want to consider a moderate taper: 8 mg, 4 mg, 2 mg. I would speak with your provider about this option. ...Read more

How long would a 1 mg suboxone stay in system before not being shown in a urine test?

How long would a 1 mg suboxone stay in system before not being shown in a urine test?

Suboxone half life: Half life of even 1mg is not short. It's weeks. Half life is heavily influenced by how your liver processes meds. Slow or poor metabolizers will have even longer half lives (hang out longer in urine) compared to rapid metabolizers. Rapid metabolizers process meds quickly. This has sometimes lead to overdose. Must be careful. Please be open and honest with your designated suboxone prescriber. ...Read more
