Wait a minute Doc...

Chronic pain often results in depression and in that sense narcotics might be beneficial. Could that be what Delphine read/heard?

I also wonder if the mild euphorogenic/anxiolotic effects of codeine might temporarily relieve symptoms of dysthymia/anxiety. Isn't that the self-medication theory of drug use/abuse?

Respectfully, your response echos old thinking about amphetamines & depression. Stimulants can create but also (safely) relieve depression.
