Umm, this may be a silly suggestion, but aren't benzodiazapines very similar to opiates? Would a
combo of a good AD plus maybe Klonapin be an alternative? Again there are addiction issues with
benzos, but from what I understand, benzo abuse is a rare. If Diane can beat heroin addiction (about
the worst there is, from what I understand), I'm sure she could handle having some Klonapin lying

Not knowing anything really about methadone except that it helps one make the transition from heroin
abuse to abstainance, is it impossible to be in methadone indefinitely? Are there no legal ways to
procure this drug if it makes you euthymic and productive? Is methadone just a milder narcotic?

> Dittos on Bob's comment on Naltrexone. The doc who first started using Naltrexone to augment SSRIs felt the opiate system was a major player in depression. The problem was avoiding an addiction. Naltrexone is the only opiate drug without abuse potential. By itself it does nothing to get you high or make you feel good. But mixed with an SSRI it has been a miracle to some treatment resistant folks. So logically one would guess that if there was a good response to a previous opiate drug, perhaps there would be with naltrexone too. Maybe?? Wish it was doing more for me. But like Bob, when I hear the word opiate, I immediately think of Naltrexone.
