Does Suboxone show up on a drug test?

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 buprenorphine/naloxone (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 Buprenorphine/naloxone (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.
