Hey Will, I hear what you're saying about Suboxone and how there really aren't any long term studies of high dose Bupe. I honestly didn't think too much about it when I was on Suboxone, but when I got off Suboxone and my wd kept on going and going, like that little fucking energizer bunny, that's when I got worried about the long term effects of high dose Bupe.

While my wd was rather lengthy and my PAWS seemingly never ending, they did mercifully come to an end and to the best of my knowledge, I have no permanent side effects from taking Suboxone.

I was on high doses (16mg to 24mg) of Suboxone for just shy of 3 years. I am almost 3 years off of Suboxone now. The only long term "damage" I suffer from that was more than likely a result of Suboxone or the opiates I took before it is that my internal thermostat is still wonky. I get hot very easily still, but it's getting better and my sleep isn't quite where I want it, but it's a lot better than it used to be too. I don't consider these last two "symptoms" permanent damage because they've both improved over the years and continue to improve.

I don't know of any permanent damage that Suboxone causes, but I would say, in my case, it's certainly partially responsible for my long term issues. BUT, Suboxone is also, at the very least, partially responsible for me being clean today. In my eyes, that's a pretty good trade off, KWIM?

Be kind to yourself. Our character defects do NOT define who we are!
