Not Medical Advice: Buprenorphine can be detected in your urine for up to three days after one single dose and probably days later if you are using buprenorphine in high doses over time.
Determining precisely how long buprenorphine is detectable in the body depends on many variables, including which kind drug of test is being used. Buprenorphine - also identified as Suboxone, Subutex, Buprenex, Temgesic, Bupe - can be detected for a shorter time with some tests, however can be "visible" for up to three months in other tests.
The active ingredients in Suboxone are naloxone and buprenorphine. Suboxone is chiefly administered as a sublingual prescription in either film or tablet form which dissolves under the tongue, though many persons favor the film for its taste. Suboxone is meant to be taken as a single everyday dose.
Results from an observational study suggest that opioid-dependent patients attending a primary care clinic who were given a 1-week prescription of buprenorphine, written instructions, and then sent home and followed with telephone support showed that this approach was feasible and safe.
