In brief: No

Question i assume is on suboxone an the prper use is not to remain on fro a long period of time usually weaned over a few month it can be used fro maintenence but in extremely smalldoses.
If not weaned in the first few month some patients have trouble overtime. If you are referring to the "effectiveness" as the ability to control you addiction you should see an addiction specialist if using.
