John-suboxone will show up, only if they are looking for it specifically. It will not show up as the more common opiate metabolites. Is this for a pre-employment physical?? Others may be able to give more insight, unless it is for a govt job, I wouldnt worry. J
guys i am taking a pre-placement drug test on monday for a new job, and i've been taking suboxone without prescription for a couple months. i took 4 mgs 2 days ago and 4mgs today, and wont take anything else before this test. should i be worried? they are giving me the 5-panel urine drug screen. i dont think it comes up as opiates, because i just took an at home drug test today, and everything was positive. i'm just wondering how in depth this physical screening will be on monday. its a full physical, blood work, vision, etc. but the paperwork only says 5 panel drug test. thanks.
I used to do urine screens for a living, and in a regular 5 panel test, suboxone wouldn't show up unless the company specifically tells the lab to look for it and pays some extra money. I don't want to see this WILL be the case for you, but that's how it was for ours. When oxycontin started to sweep the nation, we started paying the extra $15.00 it cost to test for that. It never showed up as a random opiate.
I'm not an expert in employment law, and it appears you have a couple choices?
1) Proceed with the employment screening, and present your script and letter upon request when/if it comes up.
2) Proactively couch the sitch with HR and/or hiring manager, and tell him/her what you told us. However, I think you run a big risk of incresed scrutiny by going this route.
I'd suggest you handle it the way (I think) a normie would handle it,which would be to complete paperwork completely and honestly, and deal with any issues as they arise. (Thus, NOT dwelling on the notion of narcotics/drug screens, etc)....make sense?
Hopefully someone who's better versed in the processes will stop by with great suggestions....
