I replied to your suboxone question also. I was on Lortab for 3 years due to a bad car accident that messed up my neck and back. Then switched to methadone when the lortab wasn't cutting it anymore. I'm telling you, methadone is the devil's drug! Withdrawals from that are hell. That is great that you can taper from the opiates w/ out going on sub. If I could've, I would have. And the fact that you're feeling good is a blessing. Good luck to you as well!
