I'm not very knowledgeable about this topic, but if you look at the information on Half Life and Blood Level Buildup on this site you may be able to get some answers ---> http://www.helpmegetoffdrugs.com/taper

It sounds like you are trying to find out how long Bup will show in your urine. Is that correct? If so, I'm not sure half life is what you are after here. While it is sort of related, half life refers to the time it takes for blood levels to diminish to about 50% or half the total life of a medication. When dealing with urine tests, that is a waste product - it's the result of the break down of Bup and the body illuminating it as waste. When put this way, you may see how one does not relate well to the other. Certainly a drug that stays active longer will take longer to illuminate as waste in the urine. However there are other things that come into effect. Some people test positive with UAs for up to ten days.

There are ways you can get a good guess, but it's smolts impossible to know to a certain from person to person and from instance to instance.

Realize that even 1 mg is a lot of buprenorphine. I'm making an educated guess based on what I see in patients-- but even a cheap 'point of care' test is going to detect buprenorphine in a person who was taking 1 mg per day, and stopped 4-5 days ago. There much more sensitive tests, but an employment screen probably uses a less sensitive test for initial screening.

Buprenorphine is concentrated in urine, so if you are dehydrated, it is more likely to show up. If you drink tons of liquids, though, the test will be invalid because of too much dilution.

Wish I could be more specific, but anything else would be unreliable. It varies too much between individuals to give a time with any certainty.
