    Default How long does before u test clean on suboxone?

    I have been on 2mg of Suboxone for 1 month now and am being specially tested for it. How long do I need to flush it out and be able to test clean? Any help would be much appreciated...

    i dont know as much about this as other people but i believe as told by my doctor that suboxone does not show up in a drug test.....then agai if u are specially tested for it then perhaps it would take as long as regular opiod.......up to 7 days

    Yeah I am being specially tested for Suboxone detection... which really sucks because now i am feeling like s**t trying to flush my system out before sunday and I really think that I want to stay on a maintenance program. Is it really bad to do that?

    I think its bad.. If you have only been using opiates for 1-2 years.. Its much better than methadone imo.. but that depends on you. IF your a chronic opiate user.. and Cant get off it without having a few months to do so.. then i think its a good alternative. Its better than going up and down.. searching for a high that you can no longer get ya know? I believe bupe has a half-life of 36 hours max.. so i would double that to be sure.

    Yeah.. I have been a heroin addict for 10 years and cant stay clean even though I dont want to get high any more. Sub makes me not crave heroin. I dont know. I think I am going to fail my test then if I took 1 mg yesterday and my test is on sun? Can you flush it out?

    Bupe has a 37 hr 1/2 life...
    It stays in your system a LONG time.

    I do not know how sensitive the test is.

    24 mg would take well over a week 10 days minimum

    1 mg 5 days maybe??... But I have heard of tests that show pos for 2-3 weeks. Depends on how low a plod plasma level the test checks down to.



    Been there, done that, wore out the tee shirt.

    So I am basically screwed... oh well... I dont really see a problem with being on 1mg for the rest of my life if I am not shooting heroin. It really quells my need to get high and stops cravings. I am kind of subscribing to the whole harm reduction therapy but it feels like an old road I have been down before with Methadone which doesn't work for me. I don't know. Any suggestions?
