Subutex is addicting.  The withdrawal is unpleasant and you really should taper off beforehand.

There are possible side effects from any drug, although I am not aware of any know problems that occur just because you have taken it for multiple years.  You should be aware that stopping it will require tapering off slowly and there is likely to be some symptoms of withdrawl.   Hope this helps.
