hi all-- so is it established that opiates are helpful for depression? i was sort of under the impression that they are heavy-duty and knock you out, so they're depressants, not antidepressants. that was my experience with percocet and vicodin. i'm still on percocet, which i started in november for throat lacerations. i'm on 7.5/500 2-3 times a day, and i'm itching to get off. it made sense when one dr said to me, "with all the other stuff you're on, the last thing you need is a narcotic addiction!" i'm sure you probably don't have to worry about addiction, esp since you have a good dr to watch out for you, but it's really intersting to hear that opiates can be helpful for depression and not just harmful. is helpful the norm and was my expeirence an anomoly?
