I also think it is a good question as I am seriously considering going on it myself. My doctor who has been prescribing for me the last eight years has suddenly decided he wants to taper
my meds and I am talking a "fast taper
". It has me scared to death. I am thinking about going to a pain management doctor and see about going on suboxone
. I have been on Methadone and Oxycodone for 10 years now, and then 10 years before that on hydrocodone.
