How Long Does Suboxone Stay In Your System

How Long Does Suboxone Stay In Your System? Let us answer that for you now. If you or someone you love has an opiate addiction, then you may have heard of Suboxone as a treatment method. National Suboxone Doctors use this drug as part of their Medicated Assisted Treatment for clients. Take a moment to read our information and find out more about Suboxone, how it works, and the impact it has on your body.

What Is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a medication that was created to help people overcome their opiate addictions. It works with those drugs that are illegal (e.g. Heroin) as well as prescription medications (e.g. pain meds) and is made up of a combination of Naloxone and Buprenorphine.

Suboxone is a widely recognised treatment for people with opiate addiction and is a great way to start claiming your life back. At National Suboxone Doctors, Suboxone is used alongside therapy to help people overcome their addictions and move forward with their lives.


How Does Suboxone Work?

Suboxone works in two different ways. Firstly, the Buprenorphine works to block the opiate receptors so that your urges to take drugs is reduced. Secondly, Naloxone works to reverse the effects of the drug on your system. When used in tandem, these two drugs are used to help reduce the effects of withdrawal for someone who is keen to stop using opiates.

Suboxone also works as a depressant, so it slows your system down rather than speeding it up. This means that you may also get pain relief when you take it as well as feeling calmer and more relaxed. These side effects can help patients to be more open about their reasons for addiction and begin to work through their story with a specialist their therapist.


How Long Does Suboxone Stay In Your System?

The length of time that Suboxone will stay in your system depends on many factors. Your age, weight and height will go towards determining how long the drug will stay in your system, as well as how quickly you metabolise the drug, the amount of time you have been using opioids and how healthy your liver is.

On average, Suboxone will remain your system and be detectable by a drug test for around eight days. However, the effects of a Suboxone will usually only last up to 37 hours.
