Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), is not part of the standard drug screen, so it should not show up on a standard test. For Suboxone to show up on a urine drug screen, someone would have to specifically order “buprenorphine” in addition to the standard drug test.
If you are concerned about your employer checking for Suboxone and using the test results in negative ways against you, Bicycle Health providers will provide an official letter explaining you have a prescription for buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) without breaking patient confidentiality. This helps reinforce the legal protections you have from employment discrimination. You are not permitted under the law to be fired or penalized for being on Suboxone, so long as it is prescribed by a doctor.
