Hello,
This depends on what drug screen you are being tested under, such as federal government, military, or private company - and suboxone is not specifically tested, but it can be if your 'company' asks for.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
