> well, 'refractory-depression's' my middle name.
I've seen studies where Tramadol (Ultram) - unique opiate agonist/antagonist and Buprenorphine - normal opiate agonist - used for refractory and treatment-resistant depression.
I've personally used Ultram before for my melancholic/dysthymic type of depression with success. Now, I've switched to dopaminergic Amisulpride. Just my 2 cents.
