The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Up to 5 days: It is a very long-acting and very slowly metabolized drug, and its metabolites (norbuprenorphine) stay even longer if they are being looked for. Most drug screens do not test for it, and there are special kits that do. Confrimatory tests (GC/MS, LC/MS/MS) should detect it in any case, and depending on where they set their sensitivity (like 50 ng/ml) can detect it for 7-10 days. ...Read more
Testing: Are you being specifically tested for buprenorphine? a standard urine drug panel will not test positive for use of buprenorphine. If they are tesing specifically for the buprenorphine it could take more than 5-6 days to exit your system. If its an employment drug test and they are doing a random screen, chances are that you won't test positive for opiates - assuming no use of other opiates. ...Read more

Would 5 days be long enough for 8mg of Suboxone to be out of a person urine if used every day for two weeks?
How can I get one 8mg suboxone out of my urine in the next 36 hours. I ran out of my scripts and had to take one?
If I was taking Suboxone everyday and my dose is 24 mg a day, is it normal for it to show up in my urine 7 days after taking the last dose?
Yes: Buprenorphine is a long-acting drug, and both it, and its even longer acting metabolites, may remain in urine for weeks. I don't imagine you are feeling very good if you just stopped 24 mg per day. This is not generally a very good idea, and the likelihood of prolonged withdrawal symptoms and relapse to use of your prior opiate drugs is high. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
