OK, I'm dropping into this discussion late, though I have made other posts RE:opiates as mood stabilizers. I have had that effect from opiates. As opposed to the "normal" sedative effects, I actually get a rather smooth lift in mood. I guess one would suggest that is why some people become heroin addicts, though I see that as a more complex issue. So,as to the agrument: can opiates be used to effectively treat mood disorders, as a mood stabilizer to go with an AD perhaps. I say, "yes". However, I do not know of any main-stream Pdocs that would be handing out scripts for schedule II narcotics as pyschotherapeutic meds. If anyone has some literature, or andecdotal information, please share.
