About Buprenorphine (Suboxone)

What Is Buprenorphine (Suboxone)?

Buprenorphine, commonly known by the brand name of Suboxone, belongs to the class of opioid partial agonist-antagonists. Suboxone is a hexagonal, orange tablet, but buprenorphine may also come in the form of a white tablet or a film. This drug is often dissolved under the tongue in order to manage withdrawal symptoms of opioid addiction. Although it should be used to reduce dangerous side effects from withdrawal, abusing or misusing buprenorphine can also result in fatality.

Does Suboxone Show Up On a Drug Test?

Yes, buprenorphine can be detected in a drug test. However, the type of test may be a factor in whether or not it will show up. Urine drug testing is more common since it is a fast, effective, and less expensive option, but it does look back on a shorter period of time (up to one week). If you need to identify drug use further back than one week, Health Street’s hair drug testing option can identify usage approximately 90 days back.

Why Drug Test for Buprenorphine?

Suboxone or buprenorphine is classified as a Schedule III narcotic under the Controlled Substances Act, and should only be used as instructed by a qualified medical professional.
