Dear Nichole,

I am not taking an adversarial position to you, so please don't consider this post as an attack of any kind. You are not alone in your opinion, and the citation I included at the end of this post should provide more information to enhance the discussion for everyone.

I hope you had the opportunity to read the post I addressed to you in the other thread containing a similar theme. Your skepticism is healthy. As I suggested in my other post, it is sometimes difficult to keep an open mind, especially when a contention deviates so much from the currently accepted or traditional treatment modalities. Much can come from the type of dialogue we have here. For instance, I took your opinion seriously and decided to investigate the matter further. In doing so, I found something that I believe will be informative for both you and I, and hopefully for anyone else following this thread. It is not a short piece, and at times does not make for easy reading, but the introduction and discussion at the end are worth a reading. The article appeared in one of the most respected medical journals, the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology. At the end of the article is the bibliography that contains a wealth of equally respected and well-known authors. This is truly a serious investigation into the utility of opiates, particularly buprenorphine, in the treatment of treatment-resistant depression. It is worth noting that this article was published in 1995, so we are not talking about a novel or radical idea.

It is worth keeping an open mind.

Article: Buprenorphine Treatment of Refractory Depression
