When I quit Suboxone, I was peeing "clears" after 3 to 4 days. I tested myself with those strips you dip in urine and they were sensitive to 20ng/mL. To the best of my knowledge, the more recent test strips test down to 10ng/mL.

If you'll visit some of the websites that sell Bupe test strips or the test cups, you may be able to find on their site the detection times for Bupe. I know I looked some of those figures up just a few months ago and if memory serves, the sites that sell those tests claimed detection periods of up to 5 days.

thank you for the response.ive searched countless times and there is so much useless information on this topic.many people claim all sorts of times and many do so without any real exp.

After you posted, I searched some of the test strip sites again and found the same 3-5 day detection times. Now, they did stipulate that kidney function, amount of liquid consumed and passed daily, whether or not you're taking a diuretic, etc, all have an effect on the test.

yes-- realize that the kidneys filter the liquid from the blood, then that filtrate goes through tubules where water is reabsorbed--- significantly concentrating anything that was filtered. Diuretics block the reabsorption of water, making urine less concentrated... so the same person could produce urine with 100 nanograms per cc of buprenorphine or 10 nanograms, depending on whether he is well hydrated or dehydrated. That is why, BTW, 'quantitative' urine testing is far from 'quantitative'.

I would say, then, to drink extra water and coffee (a weak diuretic) prior to the test. But labs are onto that 'trick', and a very dilute specimen sometimes results in a request for a second test.
