Does Suboxone show up on a drug test?

Buprenorphine is not part of the standard drug screen. So, for buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) to show up on a urine drug screen, it must test specifically for buprenorphine. If you’re prescribed buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) by a medical provider, then you have legal protections from employment discrimination. And further, Bicycle Health providers can provide an official letter explaining you have a prescription for buprenorphine, without breaking patient confidentiality.
