Neil, I'm curious, because I also have taken an opiate for depression. In both instances it took time (up to 1 hour) for my depression to lift after swallowing the pill. I know you are taking it sublingually, so it is probably faster. And then at a certain time of day depending on the specific opiate, I knew it was no longer effective. Like on vicidin, it worked for about four or five hours and now on oxycontin (pdoc proscribed), although it is "supposed" to last 12 hours, I start to crash at around 8-9 hours.

So I'm confused at why you don't have a sense of how often to take it. Opiates are short acting. Don't you start to feel depressed again after a certain number of hours? If it is lasting you the whole day, are you sure that it is the Temgesic that is acting as an antidepressant? What other meds are you on?
