Thomas:
I have been using codine and analogues for the last 6 months with wonderful results.
After 7 years of hell interspersed with occaisional relief under conventional anti-depressent treatment, i discovered the effect you describe.
Popular misconceptions cause significant impediments in pursuit of this therapy, you may find the following usefull:
-- Do not lie to your doctor about why you need this medecine. Do make sure you emphasize any positive effects this rx has on your behavior, can now do this, this and this.
-- Do not rely on statements like, it makes me feel better, that is not enough.
-- Do find a diferent Dr. if necessary, preferably one who is recently educated, and not an 'old fogey'.
-- Recent studies indicate that opiates under medical supervision carry very low risk of addiction, the following is a snippet of a report appearing in the April 5, 2000 of the Journal of the American Medical Association:
"There's an enormous amount of mythology and misinformation about these drugs," said Dr. Paul Bascom, a pain management expert and assistant professor of medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland.
He said the risk of addiction is essentially zero in people with no history of drug or alcohol abuse. Studies as far back as 1980 have consistently reached the same conclusion."
