I think insomnia is normal for a heroin addict coming off it. My dad never did suboxone but he did methadone and he had insomnia for quite a bit coming off that. When he went cold turkey off heroin he got insomnia.. I think it's all part of the withdrawl symptoms. On heroin you have a weird sleeping pattern because it can cause you to just nod off getting your body clock all screwed up.

Usually opiate withdrawl is physical sickness (nausea) but the tapering helps prevent that a little, I think. If you go cold turkey off heroin or methadone or suboxone you're likely to feel really really sick and in a lot of pain.. just my own experience with my dad. It's differs for everyone.
