Although six years is a long time, I would not give up hope.  You could check with your doctor or pharmacist about the side effects of suboxone in case that is having an influence on your inability to have erections.  It's good that you and your wife are still intimate.  If you are due for a physical, mention your situation to the doctor at that visit.
