ToxTests | Buprenorphine (BUP) Drug Test Dip Cards

Buprenorphine is a potent analgesic often used in the treatment of opioid addiction. 

Therapeutically, Buprenorphine is used as a substitution treatment for opioid addicts. A substitution treatment is a form of medical care offered to opiate addicts (primarily heroin addicts) based on a similar or identical substance to the drug normally used. In substitution therapy, Buprenorphine is as effective as Methadone but demonstrates a lower level of physical dependence. The plasma half life of Buprenorphine is 2-4 hours. While complete elimination of a single-dose of the drug can take as long as 6 days, the detection window for the parent drug in urine is thought to be approximately 3 days.

The drug is sold under the trade names Subutex™, Buprenex™, Temgesic™, Zubsolv®, Bunavail®, and Suboxone™; all of which contain Buprenorphine HCl alone or in combination with Naloxone HCl.
