Suboxone is a 4:1 combination buprenorphine and naloxone, administered as a replacement for illicit opiates like heroin and morphine.
Of the two active ingredients of Suboxone, buprenorphine is believed to have an elimination half-life duration between 24 and 60 hours. Naloxone, on the other hand, has an elimination half-life between 2 and 12 hours. Keeping in mind the 5.5 half-life thumb rule, it can be concluded that buprenorphine will take 132-330 hours, or 5 days 12 hours to 13 days and 6 hours to leave your system, while naloxone will take between 11-66 hours.
It can be concluded that around 2 weeks after you take the last dose of Suboxone, its ingredients will be excreted from your system.
