Suboxone has a half-life of 36 hours, so 99% of it is out of your system in eigh tdays. However, that should not be a problem with urine testing. Just take your prescription bottle with you when you go for the test. Drug screening tests are generally to test for illicit drugs, and anything prescribed for you shouldn't be a problem.
