What is Buprenorphine (or BUP)?

Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, making it an ideal treatment solution for weaning someone off a highly potent opioid such as heroin. Buprenorphine is frequently used in drug therapy because it produces significant effects, such as euphoria, but is much less addictive and helps to suppress symptoms of opioid withdrawal. However, Buprenorphine produces more effects only until a certain point as more of the drug is ingested. It eventually reaches a plateau, and an increase in dosage of the drug will no longer produce any increase in feelings of euphoria.

Sometimes, Buprenorphine is used together with Naloxone (an opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of opioid drugs) to treat opioid use disorder, with positive long-term outcomes. This combination is sold under the brand name Suboxone.

What is Buprenorphine used for?

Buprenorphine is used to treat the addiction to opioids and narcotic drugs. Buprenorphine belongs to a class of drugs called mixed opioid agonist-antagonists. This drug helps prevent some of the stress, discomfort and other withdrawal symptoms caused when you stop taking narcotic drugs. It is often used as part of drug cleansing treatment programs to manage and eliminate drug abuse by addicted people.

There is a well-known and documented systemic problem with prescription drugs in the United States. These are some of the most addictive and dangerous prescription opioids:

• Hydrocodone (Vicodin®)
• Oxycodone (OxyContin®, Percocet®)
• Oxymorphone (Opana®)
• Morphine (Kadian®, Avinza®)
• Codeine
• Fentanyl
Does Buprenorphine show up in a drug test?

Buprenorphine must be precisely tested for to show up on a drug test, and still is not commonly included on standard drug screen panels. Buprenorphine will not cause a progressive result on tests for other opiates. Most drug screens look for opiates with high rates of abuse, which are commonly semisynthetic. They detect drugs by the metabolites they produce, that is, the substances that are created when the drug interacts with the body. As Buprenorphine is a synthetic opioid, its metabolites are quite different from commonly abused drugs and will not be false positive for said opiates.

To know if Buprenorphine will be detected (providing the employer is certainly testing for Buprenorphine), you can purchase your own test kit ahead of time, like Halux Diagnostic’s 12-panel drug test cup for Buprenorphine, and monitor the detectable levels of Buprenorphine to aid in scheduling the employer's drug test.

How long does Buprenorphine stay in your system?

When you take the adequate dose of Buprenorphine, this drug will stay in your system during 24 to 60 hours. However, Buprenorphine can be detected with drug tests for 7-10 days at distinctive doses, although this time might vary significantly with much higher or much lower doses along with the individual's metabolism rate.

Another factor that can affect the time this drug stays in your body is for how long you have been consuming it. Buprenorphine is a substance that builds over time in the body. This means that the longer you have been taking Buprenorphine, the more likely it is that you will get a positive result after normal detection times.

What is a 12-panel drug test cup w/6AD?

Our 12-panel drug test cup w/6AD is a self-contained and fully integrated testing device, used to detect both drug metabolites in urine and adulterants to ensure that the sample hasn’t been tampered with. The 6 adulterants tested are oxidants, specific gravity, pH, nitrite, glutaraldehyde, and creatinine. All our drug testing cups are both FDA-510k approved and CLIA-waived. You will see results in 5 minutes or even less, saving you time by not having to wait for the typical 24-48 hour waiting period of a laboratory.

Our MDC-6125AD configuration for the 12-panel drug test cup w/6AD includes some of the most commonly abused drugs that are frequently tested for: Cocaine, Marijuana, Opiates 300ng, Amphetamines, Methamphetamine, Ecstasy, Oxycodone, Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, Methadone, Phencyclidine and Buprenorphine, plus the 6 adulterants.
How reliable are home drug tests for Buprenorphine/Suboxone?

The opioid ingredient in Suboxone, Buprenorphine, will not show up in an opioid drug screen unless you are taking a multi-panel test which specifically tests for Buprenorphine. However, if you are being prescribed Suboxone or Buprenorphine, for the most part you should not have to worry about a positive Buprenorphine test.

Some instant home drug tests, like Halux Diagnostic’s drug test cups and drug test dips, have over 99% accuracy detecting drugs that fall within each substance’s cut off levels. However, if a more sensitive test is required, the results would have to go through laboratory testing.
While Buprenorphine effects are similar to 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 specifically for Buprenorphine (one of the components of Suboxone) and/or its metabolites.
