How much time does Suboxone stay in your urine one 8mg strip?

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

Suboxone: This has a half-life of 24-60 hours and so it takes about 5 half-lives to eliminate a drug. If the t1/2 in you is 24 hrs than 5 days would be ok, but if longer, not. ...Read more

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?

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 more
