> Thank you for making me aware of this treatment option. It has given me a little hope.

I hope that my success with it can offer you a little more hope. I'm glad to hear that other people are thinking of trying it. It would be nice if it became an accepted treatment for depression.

> A couple of years ago I had four impacted wisdom teeth taken out. The Vicodin I was prescribed, in addition to taking care of the excrutiating pain, produced a profound antidepressant effect.

That's how I discovered it too: I got Vicodin ES (7.5 mg of hydrocodone/tablet) when I had my wisdom teeth out. (I only had two, and they weren't impacted, so it wasn't really all that painful. Good thing, because hydrocodone really isn't all that strong an analgesic.)

> I had a far more productive day the day of the operation (after starting the Vicodin) than the day before!

Yeah, I remember that too! I had general anaesthesia for the procedure, and after it wore off the nurse who assisted the oral surgeon gave me a Vicodin ES. I started feeling *fine* -- this was 1995, right at the start of my descent into the blackest depression I've ever had.

> I didn't have any side-effects to speak of.


> There are a few things I want to try before I pursue the buprenorphine (next up is Provigil + Celexa).

I tried Provigil briefly. I had some trouble with agitation, but I was also on Parnate at the time. Why Celexa, though?

> I don't know if my current pdoc will agree to prescribe the buprenorphine, but since I don't think he has any experience with it I'm thinking I might want to find someone else anyway.

What part of the country do you live in?
