Thank you to those who have responded to my previous posts so positively. I kind of expected to be skinned alive for my views on opiates. Instead, people have been very supportive.

I thought I should mention that I have stopped looking for a sympathetic pdoc. I found one that'll write a prescription for tramadol (Ultram) and I'm just going to stick with him. Oddly enough, I decided to stay with him because he basically stays out of my way and doesn't try to anything new. At this point, his only function as far as I'm concerned is as a prescription-writer. After many years of trying different antidepressants and ECT, I realized I was pouring a lot of money into a pretty inaffective sries of treatments and getting nowhere but broke. That's why I have taken my treatment into my own hands.

For better or worse, I'm going to do what it takes to keep myself off the road to suicide.

And now the fine print:
Please remember that I'm not qualified to dispense medical advice. I'm only saying what has worked for me and am not trying to convince anyone to take tramadol or opiates. We all respond differently to medications. Ultram mixed with standard antidepressants can have serious consequences, from what I've read. I took a chance and it worked for me. But what works for me could possibly kill someone else.
