... entire makeup, but it has kept me off of Vicoden. For the first time in my life, I do NOT drug seek. I feel like I have traded one addiction for another. I am looking for someone who has been on Suboxone for a long time and has gotten off of it. My questions is, will I be able to work? How bad will the withdrawels be? How long will it take to taper? Once it is out of my system, will I start craving opiates again? I am on 4mg 3x's a day. I would appreciate any comments on this.
