Why when I'm taking my suboxone every day would it not show up on my drug test? now the dr thinks I'm not taking it

Talk to your doctor : The screening test needs to include buprenorphine and nor buprenorphine (metabolite of Suboxone). This drug is metabolized by the liver CYP3A4 . Other drugs that induce this enzyme can speed up the metabolism of Suboxone and significantly lower it's level in the blood. Some patients experience opiate withdrawal because of this. Antiseizure meds and antiviral meds are usual culprits. ...Read more

I take a drug test weekly because I am on suboxone. I come up positive for codeine every now and then. I have not taken any other substance. Help?

I take a drug test weekly because I am on suboxone.   I come up positive for codeine every now and then.   I have not taken any other substance. Help?

Codeine is an opiate: and therefore is tested for in many drug screens. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine, an opiod medication, and naloxone an opiod/narcotic reverser. Buprenorphine is metabolized differently from methadone, heroin, etc. and if you are ONLY taking suboxone, the opiate test should be negative. So I can't explain your results. Discuss with your suboxone provider:) ...Read more

If I took 4mg of suboxone 48 hours ago, it's the only time I've ever taken it, will I still test positive for a drug test if I drink lots of liquids?

Suboxone: ViragZ ~ yes, if you get tested within 48 hours of taking that you will show positive. Drinking water only makes you pee more! The Half life of suboxone is anywhere from 3 - 37 hours which means it could be in the system after 5 days. You're probably safe at a week. If you took it sublinguinally that gives the best absorption and longer time to hang ! Dont mess with narcotics recreationally.! ...Read more
