What is suboxone?
Suboxone, a combination medication containing buprenorphine and naloxone, is one of the main medications used for medication-assisted therapy (MAT) for opiate addiction. Use of MATs has been shown to lower the risk of fatal overdoses by approximately 50%. Suboxone works by tightly binding to the same receptors in the brain as other opiates, such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone.
By doing so, it blunts intoxication with these other drugs, it prevents cravings, and it allows many people to transition back from a life of addiction to a life of relative normalcy and safety.
Buprenorphine/naloxone, sold under the brand name Suboxone, among others, in combination with counseling, it is used to treat opioid use disorder.
Suboxone will not show up in a common drug screen. Most pre-employment and probation tests are the "Five panel" variety that test for opiates, amphetamines, methamphetamines, marijuana, and cocaine. Suboxone will NOT show up on these tests. It will only be detected in a 12-panel urine test or if specifically tested for.
Side effects of Suboxone:
Because one of the main ingredients in Suboxone (buprenorphine) is an opioid, it can produce side effects such as euphoria. Even though the maximum effects of buprenorphine are less than those of full agonists like heroin and methadone, drug abusers have learned to get high on Suboxone.

How reliable are home drug tests for Suboxone?
The opioid ingredient in Suboxone, buprenorphine, will not show up in an opioid drug test unless you are taking a multi-panel test which specifically tests for buprenorphine. However, if you are being recommended Suboxone, you shouldn’t have to worry about a positive test buprenorphine test.
Some first check home drug test products are more than 99 percent accurate in detecting specific drugs according to the designated cut-off levels. However, if a more sensitive test is managed, there is a chance of testing positive if drugs are present in urine.
While Suboxone act as some of the effects of opioid drugs, Suboxone does not show up on panels as other opioids. It will only show up if the panel tests for buprenorphine (one of the components of Suboxone) and/or its metabolites.
