After 18 years on methadone and 3 on all pain pills & heroin I am better but still addicted to an opiate. Also withdrawing from 10 years of 8mgs of xanax a day.

I was severely depressed and vicodin made life "better". My doc gave me suboxone 2 days ago, and the effect was immediate. The only thing I truly hate about it is the nasty taste it leaves, but the med DOES WORK, It felt the same as taking the painkillers. This stuff is amazing !!!!
