Hello,

I have finally decided to get my life together and started Suboxone yesterday. I had precipitated withdrawals because I didn't wait long enough. I had a great job interview earlier this week. They will be drug testing me. Do preemployment drug tests show suboxone? Also, since I was on Oxycontin, will that show on my drug test and how long will it stay in my system? I have been taking Oxycontin for a year and have been doing 160mgs a day. Thanks for any help anyone can supply.

Hi Michael and welcome. Suboxone doesn't show up on "normal" drug tests. It has to be tested for it specifically. As for how long the oxy will stay in your system, my resources say 3-4 days, but since you've been taking it continuously, it might be longer.

That said, I'm PRETTY SURE that people around here have a bit more info on drug testing than I do, so maybe they'll come along and share their experience.

I hope this works out for you. Let us know what happens.

Lastly, CONGRATULATIONS on starting suboxone and ending the crazy-ass cycle of active addiction! GOOD ON YOU!
