> > With all the pharmacological alternatives out there for Depression, why must one take Opiates

Some of us get bored of trying drugs that don't work (for us).
Sal, Im only answering this because it's directed @ me. You seem to forget that just because, at will, you can pull out a long list of obscure meds, it doesn't mean you have the answer to every form of depression. You don't.

I've tried just about every drug you suggested to Elizabeth (I noted yr lack of reply to her), all the drugs on the list you post on a regular basis, & more besides. No joy. So what gives? You seem to have tried every drug under the sun. How well are you?

How can you possibly discount the idea that the opioid receptor system might in some way be implicated in *some* depressions? Why should opioid receptors be the only ones immune to dysfunction? Where is the medical evidence you are so fond of to substantiate yr (implicitly made) denial of this possibility?

> >(which are not proven effective by scientific double-blind, placebo-controlled worldwide trials)?

Right, & all the suggestions you made to Elizabeth are (for depression)? Are we applying double-standards here?

Why do you think so few studies on the opioids' role in the treatment of depression exist? Govt. agenda & 'abuse-paranoia' (which of course is not entirely misplaced).

Maybe you shld take a break from the medical literature & take a look into the politics behind the approval procedure. Why some drugs make it to mkt & others don't. These decisions are not made only upon efficacy considerations.

I think we've done this to death...

Best Regards,
