Yes, that has been my experience on it as well. i have a bottle of the stuff around here somewhere, i occasionally use it for a PRN anti-depressant effects, for no more than three times per day for a few days at a time because it does wear off pretty quickly. But it does faff-all for pain, for me, though.

I have heard anecdotal stories from friends of mine who are heavy into junk that heroin (which, being that it is turned into morphine within 4 minutes of entering the bloodstream, induces tryptophan hydroxylase) has anti-depressant effects... but how much of that is due to the multifarious social as well as physiological effects of addiction to an illegal opiod that one self-injects, i can only guess at.
