Lindsay Rae, Right you are about the long way to go before our doctors accecpt opiates as treatment for depression. I was so fortunate to find a therapist and Pdoc willing to explore alternative treatments. After almost a year of trials with assorted ssris we stumbled upon the Harvard study using Bupe for depression. It was so good for the first year+,and perhaps there's something else going on, (physically...am also hypo thiroid, etc)We have decided to try a jump start with strattera...which I know nothing about except it's the new improved non addictive (ha) form of Ritalin..used in adhd treatment. If that doesnt work I may try a break from the Bupe for a month and see if that will do it. I am nowhere near as depressed as I was when I first sought help so it is still working somewhat. It's scary though to feel yourself sinking back into the pit.
