Ive been on about 12 to 16mg of suboxone a day fir nearly 5 years; if i stop 48 hrs before a blood tox screen, will i pass?

Is it prescribed: and, if so, why the variation in the dose. There should not be a range of medication you take, but a fixed dose. If it is being appropriately prescribed, then that is a defense against a drug test. Secondly, are you sure they are doing a blood test, since blood testing is the WRONG way to determine whether someone is using suboxone. They also have to test for specific drug with buprenorphine. ...Read more

If someone takes a Suboxone and is on Prozac (fluoxetine) and blood pressure meds are they going to be alright?

If someone takes a Suboxone and is on Prozac (fluoxetine) and blood pressure meds are they going to be alright?

It depends: If the person stays clean of substance abuse, his/her chances of being "alright" increase substantially. If using stimulants like Cocaine or meth, etc, the blood pressure problems could increase and stroke could result. This person needs to also be in a substance abuse recovery program, not just taking suboxone. Then his/her whole life can improve -- real healing can happen. ...Read more

When can you test negative for suboxone in urine and blood test? My friend is very ill and fears that he won't be taken seriously and like an addict.

Not sure of ?: Unfortunately, all too many physicians and other health care providers have negative views of people with addiction, whether they are receiving treatment or not. The doctor providing the suboxone can recommend colleagues who are more open-minded and should be consulted. Most common drug-screens do not include buprenorphine (the active drug).

I was wondering how far back drugs can be detected using chord blood? I used marijuana and a piece of a suboxone before I found out I was pregnant, be

Not where they look: If you are suspected of using during pregnancy they would first look at your pee, which clears relatively quickly & does not go back to long ago exposures. Any use after the 12th week of pregnancy may show up in the babies poop, where trace amounts can linger for months.They don't screen every baby, so unless you give them a reason to look, they wouldn't.The exposure you cited would not show up. ...Read more
