Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

What the drug test result will show will depend on what specific drugs are included in the drug screen. Most drug screens test for the presence of different types of opiod drugs and medication.

So, if you had taken only suboxone, then the test is likely to show its presence. I would suggest that you inform your doctor about what medication and what dose you had taken off-prescription, so that things are clarified.

Wish you all the best.
