> If you are truly treatment resistant, you might try a mood disorder program at a University- many of them use opiates with their patients who don't respond to every other AD and combo. I suspect that people on this board have tried EVERYTHING with their docs and it was kind of a last resort. If you fall in that category, it's worth a shot in asking. As far as the prescription fraud goes, I see that as an effort to self- medicate, but a lot of docs won't. Take care, judy

Hi Judy.

It's always so good to see your name on the board, when you've been or I've been away for a little while. How is your detox going? When you have the baby, please check in and tell us (please?)

After the Christmas rush, I need to find a new pdoc. I would like to restart with opiates, and also find a better combination with my other meds. And I would like to get as far away as I can from my present pdoc who makes me feel sicker.

I don't know what you mean about universities using opiates as a last resort in their mood disorders program. Is this just a California thing--maybe moving over to the east coast in a few years? Any specifics on Universities?

If you feel comfortable to do this (and you have time) could you e-mail me at so I could ask you for any leads you might have. If not, I have other people helping me with this also, so it's okay. I am just going to have to look and look. It's good that I'm already on methadone I think, and I'm not getting off until I find another pdoc to help me with my meds, even if it means going to another state. I would rather, find someone in my location first (washington, d.c. or baltimore md, or at least on the east coast. California might be my last option, but it is an option). I'm talking about the quality of my life, as you and everyone on this board understands.

Take care,
