[QUOTE=daybyday553;5008783]I have just started taking suboxone about 2weeks now, and My gyno. prescribed me lexapro, for my depression, does anyone know if it will affect my drug test, if I take it? the pharmistist said it isnt a narcotic but, my insurance said it was, and isnt wanting to pay for my subs and I cant afford to do this program without help atleast for the med. just the doc. visit cost 150 a month, my hubby says this program is nothing more than a legal paid drug house, but, HE has never had an addiction and doesnt understand how I feel, the subs just make me feel normal, the way I use to feel before drug use>>> I wish I could do it cold turkey but, I am NOT strong enough and dont have enogh positive support...does anyone understand me???:([/QUOTE]

Hello daybyday553 and welcome! I completely understand you!!!! I could not do it cold turkey either. I also did not have the willpower. And tapering is out of the question because I could never control my use. You've come to the right place.

Are you asking if the suboxone will show on a drug screen or the lexapro? I have heard other people who are on suboxone, say that they have had drug test come back positive for opiates. I, too, am on suboxone and have taken 4 drug screens and they have all come back clean. The lexapro is an anti depressant and should not show up on any run of the mill drug screen as it is not a narcotic, controlled substance, or illegal drug.

I am so sorry to hear that your insurance is giving you a hard time. I don't know anything about how YOUR insurance works so I can't help you with that. All I can say is that I was under the impression that if you have insurance, the doctor accepts it, and he is in network, or you were referred to him, then they are required to pay. They can't just not pay because they don't like what medicine you are taking.

As far as your husband goes, there is a ton of information on the internet about suboxone. A lot of people feel the same way your husband does because they don't understand. For me, suboxone has changed my life. I no longer have cravings, I am more reliable, dependable, and I am a great mother to my son. And he deserves to have a great mother. I wish you all the luck in the world. Give it some time to level out in your system. How are you feeling on it?
