I cannot speak in the same terms as most posters with the incredible knowledge of receptors, neurostransmiters, etc. etc. etc. I selfishly take the knowledge and very much appreciate it.

So simply stated, I always wished that the drug companies, scientists, whomever, could somehow find a way to get the same affect with opiods/opiates without the possibility of addiction.

I became addicted to my pain medications, over the years, as I treated my migraines, back pain, etc. However, I slowly came to realize that these very pills were keeping my depression at bay. Coming off them was the hardest thing I had to do. I needed more and more for the same affect, but will never apologize, because as the depression got worse, I would have committed suicide without the relief I got from them.

I am pretty sure that is what scares doctors into prescribing them. They are terrified that many will get addicted. For those who could control the intake, I wish there was a way to know, and therefore, get the benefits from them that you need.
