Question: Good afternoon. Please, I am desperately looking for this answer, & I am getting different responses from different sites. My question is......does the drug Suboxone show up on a ten panel urine drug test? I am having trouble with one of my children; I would like to keep this private. I brought a ten panel test over the counter, but I'm not sure if I'm reading it right. So I would just like to get an answer from a professional; does Suboxone show up in a ten panel urine drug test? Thank you for your assistance.
If in fact Suboxone does show up in a ten panel urine test, how long would it take for the Suboxone to get out of one's urine system?

Brief Answer:
Suboxone is detectable in a urine 10 panel drug test

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You recently purchased a home urine drug testing kit. In looking over the 10 panel test and the active ingredient in suboxone, Buprenorphine, is one of the drugs screened. The drug has a half life of 24 hours and would be detectable for 2 days after use. The actual drug will take 3-4 days to get completely out of the body but will be detectable in the test for up to 2-3 days

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any further questions

I take suboxone and am usually constipated from it. Whenever i do take a fatty dump there is white clumps that come out along with the fatty log. I was just wondering what this was. Is it bad? I m paranoid about it. Not only is it scary to pass a duece resembling a black Nerf football, but the white stuff is alarming as well. Thanks

I am prescribed to 16mg of suboxone a day. I have been on suboxone currently for 3 months but I have been on it off and on since 2008. I was prescribed to clonazepam 1 mg twice a day since jan 17 2014. I take my meds as prescribed and let my family member hold my meds and they give them to me as needed so I don t take more then I should because I am an addict who truly wants help and know how easy it is to get addicted to clonazepam. my suboxen doc found out I am taking both and is threatening to take me off the suboxone because she said it will kill me to take both and I have been taking both daily since I was prescribed them and I am doing great. the clonazepam helps me with my seizures, severe anxiety, severe depression, ptsd, and bi-poloar. what do I need to do to get both my doctors on the same page and agree that is working for me and not cause any relapse or side affects?

My pain doctor just switched me from suboxone to 15mg extended release morphine sulfate, but she told me to only wait two days before taking the morphine. I read suboxone stays in your system a lot longer and it could be dangerous to take morphine too soon. What should I do?
